Get Going

Each month, this page will show Christ Church's focus on a different partner around the city! Read below for information about this month's partner and ways to serve!

Blessing of the backpacks

The area of education is one of the greatest injustices that still exist in our city. Too often, a child's zip code and neighborhood determines the success of his or her education, and thus the success of his or her future. At Christ Church, we believe that the hope of the gospel speaks directly to the educational system, and are proud to partner with three schools in the neighborhood of Binghampton: Cornerstone Prep Elementary, Lester Prep Middle, and East High School. Our vision is to impact the life of a child in the neighborhood from Pre-Kindergarten through their high school graduation. 


OUR PARTNERS

Cornerstone Prep and Lester Prep utilize academic rigor to equip all students with the skills and character necessary to succeed in college and to become life-changing leaders in their community. Cornerstone/Lester Prep educates approximately 700 children in the Binghampton neighborhood from grades Pre-K to 8.

Serving students since September of 1948, East High School, together with parents and the community, provides a positive learning environment in a comprehensive setting that encourages and prepares students to be responsible and contributing members of society.

GIVE

All month long, we will be collecting school supplies for Cornerstone Prep and Lester Prep. Items can be donated at the church on Sunday mornings at drop-off locations around the church, including in the Nursery, Children's Ministry, Student Ministry, the Sanctuary, Seabrook, and Wilson Chapel. Supplies needed include:

  • Composition Notebooks
  • Wide Rule Paper
  • Pencils (Large/Chubby style, #2, or mechanical)
  • Scissors
  • Crayons
  • Large Pink Erasers
  • Glue Sticks
  • Hand Sanitizer

GO

The greatest way to impact the life of a child is to be present! There are several ways to do this in the city at our partner schools. Doing this not only engages and encourages students, but provides a blessing to the teachers and school faculty that are serving on the front lines each and every day.
