"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure." Hebrews 6:19
For the past three years Calvary has actively supported the Jane Long Elementary School in our neighborhood through a mentoring program called Kids Hope. It is a church-school partnership that pairs caring adults with at-risk kids in supportive mentoring relationships. Each Calvary member who serves as a mentor is assigned one child and spends just one hour per week reading, talking, playing and listening to their child at school. This one simple act makes a big difference in the life of an at-risk child: one-on-one positive attention from a responsible, caring adult. By helping the children feel loved and valued, we help them to learn, grow and succeed.
Each Calvary mentor also has a prayer partner to keep the mentor and child in prayer.
If you are interested in mentoring an at-risk elementary student in our community, or being a prayer partner, please call the church office or contact the Kids Hope directors:
Chris Bradley or Sheryl Smith at the church office at 281-342-2147 or Calvaryinfo@ces-richmond.org
We believe that as the people of Calvary Episcopal Church, empowered by the Holy Spirit and the love of Jesus, we seek to embrace all ages in our journey of faith through these Core Values:
