August is “back to school” time and this month’s edition of Love, Pray, Serve has a number of ideas that you could use to bless and serve one of our local schools. Some ideas include:
- offering car shares or organising a “walking bus” to school
- helping someone with a bit of extra tutoring
- fixing up bicycles
- adopting a teacher to pray for
- volunteering for parent councils/fundraising committees
- donating to school funds to subsidise school trips for families who struggle financially
And of course there’s our “Back to School” Family Service taking place on 25th August – why not invite families from your street or any teacher’s you might know.
“Serve your local school” – has lots more ideas about how individuals or whole churches can be involved in playing a part in their local school community, ranging from very simple through to some rather grand ideas. Have a look at their website and be inspired!
