urban ministry Opportunities

Our ministry efforts at IPS School 105 and in the surrounding neighborhood have borne much fruit and have opened up even more opportunities to serve: 

  • FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE - We will be sponsoring a flag football league with our partner, Crossroads Bible Church, beginning in late August. No experience necessary, just a heart for kids in the neighborhood. We need coaches, assistant coaches, and referees. Practice one evening per week and games on six consecutive Saturdays beginning September 10.  
  • AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM - We are hoping to follow up on the success of our summer reading program with an after school program, beginning in early September. The program will take place at Crossroads Bible church and will run two days a week, from roughly 3:45 to 6:00. Students will be given a snack and a chance to unwind after the school day, presented with a Bible lesson on personal character and provided with homework help and individual or small group tutoring. We need volunteers to serve either one or two days per week and times can be somewhat flexible. No lesson planning required!  
  • TUTORING - We will again be providing tutors to work one hour per week during the school day in specific classrooms. Days and times are very flexible. Specific tasks will be determined by each teacher but usually involve one-on-one or small group tutoring. Organizational and cultural awareness meetings are scheduled Saturday August 13 at 9:00 a.m. at Outlook and Thursday August 18 at 7:00 at Park Chapel Christian Church in Greenfield.  
  • SPONSORS - We need “sponsors” for each classroom. Sponsors provide encouragement for teachers through small gifts, needed supplies, and prayerful support for teachers and their students. This is an excellent activity for life groups and teams.
