"To be a community of Christ's disciples and the presence of Christ to our neighbors."
Kids Hope USA is an on-going ministry of Third Reformed Church. Third Reformed partners with East Leonard Elementary School to provide mentors to children in grades K-5 who would benefit from spending weekly time with a caring adult. Students and their mentors meet one hour a week during the school day. During this time they work together to empower students to succeed in growing academically as well as socially, emotionally and behaviorally. Vital to the success of this ministry is the prayer partner of each mentor-student relationship, who prays for them each week throughout the school year. Kids Hope USA has had a significantly positive impact in the lives of the child and mentor.
