Congregations For Children (C4C) is a statewide initiative of The United Methodist Church focused on reflecting the love of Christ to our neighbors by helping children in public schools who are living in poverty.
C4C’s areas of focus include:
* Helping to improve K-3 Literacy rates (volunteer tutors, collecting /donating books, after-school tutoring programs, summer reading camps, etc.)
* Helping to meet the Basic Needs of students (food, clothing, school supplies, etc.)
* Helping to increase Parental Involvement and Interactions with Positive Adult Role Models (lunch buddies, morning greeters, etc.)
The Capital District realizes that as a result of COVID children are experiencing many changes and are especially vulnerable at this time. Most of you are directly involved with schools in your area and are aware of what is needed in your community. There is a lot of support to be offered and we want to share this information with you all. Each District has its own Coordinator and we want to send a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Marlee Ray who is the Capital District Coordinator and to David Rockefeller, who has graciously stepped into the role of Conference for C4C and UMAPS. David has shared a wealth of information with us that can be of great assistance at the local level and we want to be sure that you receive this information.
In order to help the District Coordinators best serve our churches, please take one minute to complete this brief but very important survey. Many thanks!!
