Mission of the Month

Public School Mentoring

Daggett Elementary is our St. Paul Lutheran adopted school about two miles from our downtown campus where over 800 students attend daily and where the vast majority of students and families struggle in the bondage of systemic poverty.

Through two avenues of mentoring opportunities we can come alongside families by sharing love and investing in children through meaningful relationships. What children need most is the love of a caring adult! Here’s how you can serve at Daggett Elementary:

  • Kid’s Hope – serves children K-5 where mentors are paired with one child. Affiliated with Kid’s Hope USA, it is a one-hour weekly commitment that allows you to work around your schedule. We serve the most at risk students.
  • Academy 4 – mentors are paired with a 4th grader and connect once a month on a Friday for 90 minutes (1:15 – 2:45).
  • Your financial contribution will be greatly appreciated, but what we really need is your TIME. You can make a real difference in the life of a child! Pick the one that best fits your schedule – or do both if you can. Sign up today!

    In Aledo, KiDs Beach Club® is an after school Christian outreach to students at Vandagriff Elementary. This exciting ministry allows participants to form relationships with kids in clubs that opens doors for gospel conversations with kids and families. The club meets Wednesdays after school. Your donation helps cover the program cost, which includes a Bible for each child. Please contact Lisa Canning (lisa.canning@sharingnewlife.com) to get connected.
