Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Mt. 28:18-20)

Kids Hope USA Mentoring Program at Lenoir City Elementary School

One Church—One School—One Child—One Adult—One Hour!

Program Director, Sara Park

One simple thing will make a big difference in the life of an at-risk child: One-on-one, positive attention from a responsible, caring adult.

KIDS HOPE USA develops these one-on-one relationships through the creation of church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk kids in
supportive, mentoring relationships.

KIDS HOPE USA mentors spend just one hour per week, reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed.

First Baptist has 25 mentors serving at Lenoir City Elementary School which began this past week. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Sara at 986-9066 or 755-6385 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
