We support our neighborhood school, Kyle Elementary, in many ways. We
provide volunteers to serve as lunch buddy’s, provide tutoring in math and
reading, and assist with the Christmas Gala. As church members we also help
provide school supplies, clothing and shoes, and assist in paying school fees.
