Making A Difference by
Partnering with Our Schools

In one of last weeks’ emails we told you about our invitations from the Franklin Pierce School District to have tables at both their Community Day for 1100+ staff members and at Washington High School’s Back to School Night. Both events were incredible opportunities to connect with our schools and our neighbors.

One highlight was having the FP Superintendent stop to say how much he loves their partnership with our church. The Washington HS Principal also expressed his gratitude and mentioned how excited they are for Serve Sunday. More than one person talked about the difference it makes for staff and student morale when their campus has that attention at the beginning of the school year.

We encourage you to make Serve Sunday a priority. It’s so much more than a day when we clean up school campuses, it’s an investment in relationship.

Listen in as we hear from the Bethel School District

Through the years as we’ve talked about serving our communities, we keep coming back to the importance of partnering with our schools. Building those relationships has taken time, but it has been worth the investment to experience the partnerships and mutual respect and appreciation that has developed.

Recently, we sat down with Jay Brower, the Director for Community Connections for Bethel School District, to have a chat on the RVCC Podcast. Though we’ve already partnered in many ways with the Bethel School District, we wanted to hear directly from Jay what the schools need and what else we, the church and the community, can do to make a difference.
