Centre Ridge Elementary is a school located less than a mile from our church, and more than 50% of it's students are considered to be living in poverty. We support them in a variety of ways, such as providing them with U Feed Others (UFOs) weekend food bags and back to school backpacks. In 2019, we began a mentoring partnership with Centre Ridge. It was paused during the pandemic, but we are restarting this ministry for the 2022-2023 school year.
The greatest need for these students is for caring adults who are willing to serve as a mentor. This is simply an adult who will give 30 minutes once a week for the school year to sit with their student and ask how they are doing. Not to teach or tutor, just to listen and love.
As their neighbor, it is our joy to be able to serve these students with the love of Christ. Prayerfully consider serving as one of our mentors. This small time commitment could make a significant impact on the life of a student.
If this sounds like a ministry that would bring you joy, contact Phil Mohr at email@example.com.
