Mendota Community School
Reverend Hart and Cyndy Hoffman began and concurred the possibility of adopting a school through the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools’ Adopt-a-School Program. We met with the Principal, Carlettra Stanford, and other members of her leadership team on Friday, March 24, 2017 to finalize this partnership with Mendota Community School, located at 4002 School Road off Northport Drive – which was recently designated one of two Community Schools in the Madison Metropolitan School District.

The Adopt-a-School partners generally provide a combination of human, material, and financial resources to the school they’ve adopted, with human resources being the most valued. Here are some of the many ways in which we can participate:

• Work with students (possibilities include academic tutoring, mentoring, serving as a Breakfast Buddy or Lunch Buddy, serving as a Pen Pal, leading a Spoken Word Club).
• Participate in “Done in a Day” activities (possibilities include participating in evening Open School House activities, assisting with the establishment of a school Food Pantry (in the Fall 2017/2018), supporting Staff Appreciation activities scheduled for May 1-5, 2017, assisting with the Community Block Party on August 26, 2017).
• School volunteer (serving as a classroom guest speaker, participating in production of the Lion King, assist with planning and executing after school programming, supporting service learning projects).
• Jesse Tree in which we supplied school supplies and snacks for the students and then the staff as well.
• Saving the Box Tops for Kids rewards program, collecting gently used books, donating tickets to athletic events).

 It Starts in Your Heart

Stephen's MinistryStephen Ministry
“Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2)
Stephen Ministers are laypeople- Christian men and women-trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment. Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. Their commonality is a passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need. These are people with a compassionate heart who’ve been equipped with the skills to listen, encourage, and offer support when someone is in need. A Stephen Minister typically has one care receiver at a time and meets with that person once a week. If interested in becoming a Stephen Minister contacts Cyndy Hoffman via e-mail: cyndy8756@gmail.com or via phone: 608-513-2280.
