We have been in a partnership with Glen Acres Elementary School since the 2013/2014 school year. The goal of this partnership is to bless our community by blessing children and families through their school. The shape of this partnership will be determined by the needs at Glen Acres. We want to leave room for God to work in growing and changing this ministry.
