Partners In Education The church adopted two schools in the community as our Partners in Education to improve the educational opportunities of our children. The purpose of this partnership is to help strengthen, promote and provide services to our schools, students, and community to improve student achievement and their environment for success so that they might become productive citizens. Our partnership supports the schools through financial and human resources.
