Collaboration Corner Adopt a Teacher Program | October 2019

Fellowship Nashville began the Adopt a Teacher initiative four years ago as a way to show support and appreciation for Waverly Belmont’s staff. When Calvary United Methodist Church became a partner at the school two years ago, they joined in on the program too! Families, singles, small groups, and friend groups are matched with a teacher and then reach out to the teacher once per month.

Collaboration Corner Back to School Events| August 2019

Our church community partners volunteered with our school partners at back to school events throughout the city in July and August. From community festivals, backpack drives, free haircuts, bouncy houses, meet the teacher nights, and more, our church partners were out and about supporting their schools.

Collaboration Corner Stratford Team | March 2019

Earlier in the Fall semester, the United4Hope Stratford team dreamed of inviting students, teachers, administrators, and community members to prayerfully walk through the school. They began by building trust and rapport with staff during their weekly Prayer at the Pole before school. With the help of school counselors, they prepared a handout that detailed specific ways to pray for the students.
