As part of our outreach to the community, Community Church has partnered with a ministry called Kids Hope USA. This is a national organization that is now 20 years old, active in 39 states and was created to help support children in the public schools. Community church partners with Pullen and Mary McGuire Elementary Schools to help make a difference in the lives of children. Following an interview and training, mentors are partnered with a child and have a regular scheduled meeting time for one hour each week during the school day. Mentors work on academic tasks as well as relationship building and having fun together. Each partnership is backed by a prayer partner who regularly prays for the mentor and mentee. As an added bonus to the ministry we have 5 parties that are scheduled in the evenings that bring mentors and mentees together for fun outside of the school day.
