After School Tutoring
at La Iglesia De La Gracia
NNU STUDENTS: Did you know helping with the after school tutoring, or other programs at La Capilla de la Gracia at Farmway Village, can help you earn your cross cultural requirement??
Grace began its ministry at Farmway Village near Caldwell on Palm Sunday, 2008. For the first few years the church met in the community center for worship and church school. In November of 2011 we moved to our current location which gave us an office, a children’s room and use of a large common space. This made week day ministries possible as well as week end worship.
One of the most apparent needs was homework help for the children. Too many parents did not speak English and were finding it very difficult to assist their children. We began an afterschool tutoring program that met on Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30- 5 p.m. We later expanded this to 3 days when we had sufficient volunteers.
Then in 2013 we met with an MCM Fund foundation advisor and she encouraged us to explore our technology needs with their help. This led to expanding the program to include providing students with electronic tablets to be used for research and reinforcement activities such as math games. This program now serves 30 to 35 students, grades K-12. It has become a mutually supportive community of students and adults dedicated to encouraging and empowering those who attend. The program is open to any child who chooses to come. There are attendance and communication requirements for those who wish to be part of the tablet program.
After School Tutoring is on Summer Vacation! Please join us for Adventure Club, every other Wednesday throughout the summer. Go to the Adventure Club tab for more information and a calendar.
