Serve Our Schools

Perimeter Church partners with elementary and middle schools within our City Impact regions with the goal that every child would graduate from high school. Establishing these relationships with area public schools provides an abundance of ways for us to serve, pray, and positively influence and bless children and their families.

We invite you to explore ways to Bless Our Schools this upcoming year!

The mentoring ministry through Perimeter Church began a decade ago with a national, non-profit partner, Kids Hope USA. Our leaders have been trained and in turn, train and provide ongoing support and encouragement to volunteer mentors. Each trained mentor engages in a one-on-one relationship with a child at their neighboring school, meeting for just one hour each week.

Reading Encouragement

Perimeter Church has sponsored Book Clubs at local elementary schools for several years. Volunteers who have a love of reading visit select student groups on a weekly basis during the fall and the spring to lead chapter discussions from books selected by their teachers.

If you are interested, please contact Mary Lou Heaner.
