Join the Conversation!

The Back to School season is upon us already and Serve United is gearing up to meet again to network and discuss church-school partnerships at our quarterly Serve United Activation Meeting on August 18th at Real Life Church Artisan Campus. This meeting is open to all church and organization leaders and anyone else interested in church school partnerships. We want you to know that you are not alone in the journey of school engagement. We want you to be aware of the abundance of resources available to you as you engage this critical place of need in your community. We want to hear about your progress in forming relationships with schools and hear the expertise you may bring to the table. This meeting we will be discussing how you can engage a school around the causes of Education and Sexual Integrity.
