Volunteer as a Reading Friend!


Our ongoing partnership with Highland Elementary

is a unique and special relationship!

We are looking for volunteers willing to share time as a Reading Friend.

For 30-45 minutes each week, you can invest in the life of an elementary-aged student by reading with them. Organized through Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS), this established program has made a difference in the lives of students all over the city-parish... simply by spending intentional time sitting with a child to encourage and read together.


Can you be a Reading Friend?

Contact the church office and we'll help you get started!

Youth Outing: November 13th

The cost is $20 per student, and will include dinner,
