This Week's Big Event

Last Chance to Be Part of a BELL Scholar’s Summer

You still have two weeks to enjoy time with this summer’s BELL (Building Educated Leaders for Life) scholars.

Can you help tutor in reading or math? Maybe you could serve as a lunchtime or playground buddy. Or you might have time to participate in afternoon enrichment or field trips.

Slots are available almost every day between now and July 26.

Get details about this fun opportunity and sign up online.

Many children, especially those whose lives are impacted by poverty, can lose ground during the summer. BELL scholars make progress in reading, math and other core skills during the summer months. BELL also offers experiences some children may not experience otherwise—swimming lessons, as well as field trips to places like the Carolina Raptor Center, the Aviation Museum and Discovery Place.

It’s also not too late to contribute financially to this year’s program.

Are you part of one of the many FPC Ministry Teams that are involved in outreach to our neighbors?

If not, let member Michael White give you a quick look at just one of these teams, the FPC Moving Ministry, which helps with the Crisis Assistance Ministry’s Furniture Bank and Relocation program. As Michael says, just a couple of hours on a Saturday morning once a moth enables us to make it possible for those who are moving from having no place to live to having a new place to live when we “put their stuff in their place and put smiles on their faces.”
