Ruston Elementary School: This is our Adopt-A-School partner and we have fun ways to connect with teachers and students throughout the year! On August 20 pick up the name of a faculty member to pray for during the school year. Give $12 towards Birthday Boxes and ensure every child who might not get a cake for their birthday receives one. Gift Cards are needed for once monthly faculty meetings. Sign up to help provide $10 gift cards and snacks.
The Well: Opportunities abound with this community center in Ruston. Specifically, we want to work with them on supporting local foster care families.
Delivering Back Packs: In partnership with NELA Food Bank, this program ensures children in need have food to take home over the weekend. Get on the rotation to pick up packs from Super1 and deliver to Glen View Elementary School.
Faith & Finances: An 11-week, Christian-based, finance class for low income participants. We need Allies to serve as encouragers to those going through the program. Meals will also be needed.
Ramp Ministry: We need able-bodied youth and adults to help build ramps for those in need in and around Lincoln Parish. Funding is also needed.
Sewing Team: Create various items for our church and community. This team makes prayer blankets, laundry bags for foster children, and more. They are happy to teach as well.
