Foundations is back this summer! Last year we launched this program to reach out to K-8th graders in our multicultural community of South Nashville. Our goal is to build strong foundations for these kids as we teach them and show them how much Jesus loves them. Beginning May 29 through July 31 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm we will teach, play, and eat with kids from our neighborhood. Every Wednesday night we will build strong bonds and sure foundations. And this year, as an added bonus, the new youth group from Christ for the Nations Church will be joining us! They will help with some of the activities and then have their own lesson time.
Once again, we will also be sending home a box of food with each child. Most of the children get food help from their schools, so we are standing in the gap during the summer months.
What did we learn from last year? We found that kids love to belong, to play, to eat, and to learn. We were able to keep a connection with many of the kids during the school year through futsal, fun events on our campus, bible studies, and even through some one-on-one relationships. We are slowly building friendships that always point to Jesus.
Interested in serving, teaching, or helping in other ways? Just click here to sign up and we will get in touch with you. We need teachers, food sponsors and servers (we will have pizza every week for the kids), people who are good at acting (as in a fun skit), singing, or just playing with the kids during our game time. We know the summer months can be crazy busy sometimes, so we have made it easy for folks to serve for one Wednesday night or for several.
Join us this summer as we continue to build foundations of love, faith, trust, and hope in our community.
