CHURCHES LOVING SCHOOLS 

The vision is for churches to adopt local WJCC Schools and become a source of encouragement and a facilitator of resources. Two local churches have recently teamed up to begin the initiative at James Blair Middle school. We want to affirm the wonderful support and service being given by several other community groups.

To learn more or if you think that you or your church might be interested in being part of this initiative send your request to the following email address: CLS@forgwm.org
