Serve

About Us​

We are a small group of individuals who are making ourselves available to plan and carry out the good works God has prepared for Midtown at Napier Elementary and Cameron College Prep. We are regular people, just like you, who have jobs and families, who love the Lord, and who want to follow the Lord as He serves our city. If you would like to join our small leadership team, please email us. Or, if you want to help out with any of the events below, we would also love to hear from you.

DREAM WITH US

We have had a great partnership with Napier and CCP over the years and have gotten involved in many ways. One-day school beautification projects, meals for staff, adopting classrooms, helping classrooms obtain a class pet, providing school uniforms, attending/supervising lock-ins, tutoring, mentoring, etc. However, we are always looking for new ways to connect the gifts God has given His people with the needs of this school community. If you have an idea about a unique way to incorporate your giftings in these schools, we want to dream with you and see if we can’t make that a reality. Please contact us!
