What Kids Need Most

Too many students stand just one close adult relationship away from thriving in school and in life. This gap hinders education; loneliness obstructs learning. Yet every church’s most abundant resource is people.

We provide structure, training, support, and resources designed for use in public schools by churches to give kids what they need most—hope and love from a mentor.

Together, we can make a life-long difference. In every school, in every community. One young heart at a time. Let’s do this in yours.

Service Saturday

Traditionally in May, members of the congregation set out on a Saturday to do community service projects within our neighborhood. Projects traditionally involve yard work, cleaning, or small DIY projects in which we try to work and bond with our neighborhood community.

Please check the Westview Communicator and website for upcoming opportunities.

Operations Christmas Child Year Round Donation

Operation Christmas Child

“I want every child to know there is a God who loves them.”

Franklin Graham, President, Samaritan’s Purse

Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan's Purse, has delivered 157 million shoeboxes to boys and girls in need around the world, in 160 countries. Each one—packed full of fun toys, school supplies, and hygiene items by a family or individual—is sent with prayer that the child who receives it will experience God’s love through their simple gifts.

We praise God for so many children whose lives have been transformed because of a simple gift.

The Operation Christmas Child shoe box collection will take place again in November. Now is a good time to get school supplies on sale for your shoe box.

Your investment is a gospel opportunity to some child!
