Missions Focus - Colonial Elementary School

New Hope has a vital connection with Colonial Elementary School in providing uniforms, other clothing needs, backpacks, sneakers, and a variety of treats. This means a lot to these kids because many of them come from homes where they have very little, some are actually homeless, many do not have a father in the home, and, in some cases, the parents are abusive to their kids.

We also have had the opportunity to encourage the teachers with periodic lunches, regular prayer at the flagpole, and an updating of the teacher lounge.

 

One of the most significant opportunities we have starting in January 2023 is the chance to mentor the 5th graders. We will need at least 50 mentors to meet with groups of kids every week for ten weeks. It would be great if you could help! Please contact Jim Mayer in Missions for more info or to volunteer!
