The NCCUMC Congregations for Children Committee is pleased to announce that five churches in our conference have been awarded C4C Community Connectivity Mini-Grants. The funds were made possible by a $5000 grant to C4C from the NCCUMC Board of Church and Society to encourage and support churches’ advocacy efforts for local public schools.
The purpose of the mini-grants was to help fund initiatives seeking to enhance weekday after-school hours programming intended to address the learning gap exacerbated by online and hybrid in-person/online learning for our public school students during the Covid pandemic. While all twelve applicants demonstrated a strong commitment to the mission of Congregations for Children partnerships, five stood out as being particularly worthy of the financial support that this grant offers. Congratulations to the following churches for receiving a 2021 C4C Community Connectivity Mini-Grant:
Ann Street UMC (Sound District)
Elevation UMC (Capital District)
Englewood UMC (Heritage District)
La Estrella Resplandeciente (Heritage and Capital Districts)
St. Luke (Fairway District)
