“Start children off on the way they should go, and when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Every child bears an originality that is evidence of the image of God in his or her life. God has filled every child with a potential that is distinct from any other person. Transform Yakima Together’s Education Team is a uniting of representatives from churches who are seeking and implementing strategies, such as adopting schools, to help teachers nurture and provide opportunities for children to discover and develop their minds, characters and talents within a positive and healthy environment.
Join us in our Adopt-a-School initiative – One of the most significant ways that we as the Body of Christ can serve and impact our community is by ministering to the children. They will be the leaders of the next generation and the future of the Yakima Valley.
One of the easiest ways to minister to children is in the schools they attend every day. Schools are looking for help and are very receptive to our coming alongside them in meeting the needs of the children. The simplest way for the Christian Community to serve is for each, by itself or in partnership with other churches, to adopt a school. There are several churches in the Yakima Valley who have already adopted a school and the results are inspiring. The goal of Transform Yakima Together is to see every school in the Yakima School District, and ultimately, the Valley, adopted by at least one church.
In collaboration with the Yakima School District, we have created an Adopt-a-School Handbook on how churches can adopt a school. Contact us for more information and a copy of the handbook.
