Literacy for LIFE

Literacy for LIFE

In 2016, our church began a new evangelistic outreach that grew out of our ministry to Cherrydale Elementary School. Literacy for LIFE is a home-grown, Bible-based reading intervention program for K5-3rd graders. While aiming to help the students, the ministry also attempts to involve adult family members alongside the student and magnify the adult/parent role in the child’s ongoing improvement. MaryAnne Calvino has developed the curriculum and prepares weekly lesson plans for our 12 students. We are also able to integrate a Bible lesson into the schedule. The ministry takes place at church on Tuesday/Thursday afternoons from 3:00-4:30 for eight weeks during June & July. 

Other ministry team members include: Patty Beam, Anna Cornelius, Leslie Davis, Royce Franklin, Esther Neal, Carole Ring, Elena Smith, Esther Talbert, Pastor Vincent.
