Young Readers Need You!

Our church is poised to join in Bishop McKee’s “One+One” challenge to help with literacy in the North Texas Conference. The Bishop’s plan calls for volunteers — one adult + one child + one hour per week — to establish relationships and to promote literacy. It may be reading to a child, with a child, or listening to a child read.

Pastor Beth and Susan Anderson have visited with Dr. Jennifer Perry, principal at Lake Dallas Elementary. We will be working with Yadira Galicia, Communities in Schools Site Coordinator for Lake Dallas, who has been out on maternity leave as well as for the Summer. Yadira will be contacting us when she returns to school in August.

We want to be ready by having at least 10 volunteers signed up for reading to begin in mid-September. Further details will be forthcoming with Yadira’s return to school.

Clipboards will be passed around during worship or you may sign up in the church office or by calling Susan Anderson at 940-497-2707.
