"One hour, Two lives changed!"
Community Church is a community of Jesus people looking for ways to serve our surrounding community and East Dayton friends. We provide multiple opportunities to serve and be served. Community provides after-school tutoring and mentoring at the request of Mad River Schools via a program called Whiz Kids. While we tutor reading for one hour, we start our program 2 1/2 hours prior to tutoring time. Our kids are transported from their respective schools by volunteer qualified drivers. Their time with us starts with a healthy snack and warm up with interactive games. The rest of the time focus's on their lives and how God love is at work around them by songs/praise session, imagination (craft), chapel time, and time for expressing their sads, mads and glads. Each child has a prayer angel praying for them and sends weekly notes/cards of encouragement based on sads, mads and glads.1/2 hour prior to tutoring they are fed a full meal. Families, tutors, mentors and kids all working together for our children.
