Recent partnerships have developed with Church World Service (CWS) and The Arc of Greensboro. CWS is using the Friendship Classroom twice a week through the month of September for a citizenship class. It’s a joy to interact with refugees and immigrants who are preparing for their citizenship tests. We have been invited to sit in on classes to learn and to meet our neighbors!
The Arc is using two classrooms in our basement which were previously used as youth rooms (youth leaders are making plans for new and improved youth rooms for the kickoff on September 10.) At its meeting on July 23, 2017, the Board of First Christian Church approved the use of space by The Arc for up to a year on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for its RemARCable CommUNITY Program that enriches the lives of individuals with development and intellectual disabilities through programs like art and life skills classes. We are eager to meet program participants and to nurture a relationship with the Arc.
All of our community partners are invited to our church-wide picnic in September.
