goLEAD - Help refugee and immigrant kids with their homework!
@ Duke Manor
Lead, Educate, Advance, Disciple
Engaging in Waypoint’s cross-cultural ministry through helping children with their homework is a crucial link to the gospel for that child and their family. Meeting their human needs is a natural bridge to relationship for gospel engagement.
What: Helping refugee and immigrant kids with their homework and any other subjects they may need some extra help in, along with building relationships, and sharing the gospel with the parents.
Why: Many immigrants and refugees have moved here from different countries that don’t speak English. This is a big challenge for their kids who are sent to school and are expected to perform at the same level with other English-speaking kids. Immigrant and refugee parents are unable to help their kids since they don’t speak English either. Tutoring would also be very expensive for these families. So as a church that is called to carry God’s mission here in the Triangle, we found it to be fitting to help these kids and provide free tutoring as a means of blessing the community with the resources that we have been blessed with.
How: There are about 30 kids of all different grade levels in Duke Manor that need help with school work. The goal is to have church volunteers to help these kids with their school work once a week. Resources will be provided and it would be helpful if you had resources you’d like to share as well. We would love for you, as the church, to be part of showing the love of Christ by walking alongside these immigrant and refugee families.
DRESS CODE: In respect to the cultures and beliefs represented in Duke Manor, No tank tops. No shorts.
