You are invited to the unveiling of the merger of NCCUMC’s two laity-led and clergy-supported ministries focused on supporting our public schools – Congregations for Children (C4C) and United Methodist Advocates for Public Schools (UMAPS). To emphasize their natural relationship with each other, they are now housed together within the updated C4C website. In addition to the three historic areas of focus for C4C (promoting K-3 literacy, providing basic needs for low-income school children, and encouraging church volunteers to serve as caring adult mentors) we have incorporated UMAPS as the fourth focus area – advocating for public education. UMAPS has its own unique web page to begin to educate congregations about public school issues and then mobilize them to advocate for public education in the public square.
