We deeply desire to be a church that serves our community for the sake of the gospel, and one of the ways we live this out is through our partnership with Christ Together Greater Austins, Education Connection Program.
Education Connection's exists to combat literacy with a desire to have every child reading by the time they leave 3rd grade. Research has identified 3rd grade literacy as one of four systemic problems facing our community.
Research identified that from kindergarten to 3rd grade a child learns to read. From 3rd grade on a child reads to learn. If a child is behind grade level at the end of 3rd grade his/her academic and economic future is not promising.
One of the ways we serve Education Connection as a church is through a mentor partnership, which consists of committing to read to a child for 30 minutes, once a week.
