“Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.” ~Luke 18:16
In spelling out his vision for this key initiative to link United Methodist Churches all over Florida to local schools in their neighborhoods, Bishop Carter said, “I want to ask you to see the children in your community in a new way. I am asking every local church to consider a connection to the nearest school with at-risk students.”
We have churches all over the state, large and small, rural, suburban and urban who have done some great work in partnering with schools. Follow the links on this page to ideas, best practices, resources, and things to remember when setting up this relationship.
Thank you for being a part of a Conference-wide effort to make the children of Florida in your neighborhood “Our Kids.”
