Church-School Partnership with Daniel Bagley Elementary
Bethany Community Church has had a growing relationship with Daniel Bagley Elementary since 1969. Over the years, Bethany has helped with and supported: Bagley workdays, PTA fundraisers, levies, the annual holiday giving circle, school supply drives, and teacher initiatives. In turn, Bagley has opened its facilities and grounds for cooking, activities, and classroom space. In 2008, we partnered together for a new parking lot at Bagley, in a mutually beneficial scenario. Bethany funded the new 80 space, eco-friendly parking lot providing a place for teachers to park, improved safety conditions during school pick-up and drop off and Bethany gained Sunday parking. In the Fall of 2016, we took another step forward by formalizing our “Church-School Partnership” to transform our Green Lake community. Going forward, our goal is to meet practical needs of students, their families, and staff at Daniel Bagley that utilize our congregation’s abilities and are an example of our love for Jesus and our neighbors.
Why School-Church Partnerships?
- To be a good neighbor, showing the love of Christ
- Build a stronger Green Lake community and neighborhood
- Support education as a pathway towards bright futures and out of poverty
- To build relationships with people of different backgrounds and be advocates for justice and equality
