ICoach Summer Reading Program

We have been invited to share in a special project this summer to serve the Congolese children in the Johnston and Urbandale School Districts. These students, grades K-12, need support through the summer in Reading and Writing to maintain the gains they have made during the past school year.

For six Thursday nights beginning June 13, we will gather at the Church to assist approximately 25 students from 5:00 pm until 7:30 pm. We will serve these families each week through nutritious meals, recreation and academic support. Volunteers who serve in the Summer Reading Program will be required to complete a criminal background check conducted through the Church Office.

For more information on how you can be a part of the ICoach Summer Reading Program, contact the Church Office by phone or email. Your service, whether for one week or each week will provide a wonderful ministry to these who represent the fastest growing resettlement population in the Greater Des Moines area!
