GROWING IN GRACE
Growing in Grace is Christ Church’s afterschool program that serves lower-income children in New Bern. The children attend Brinson Memorial Elementary School in 3rd-5th grades. GIG began in 2016 and has served up to 10 students each year. The program is in session during the school year, and volunteers from Christ Church and the New Bern community work one-on-one with the children Monday through Thursday. The children are picked up from school in our Christ Church van and are brought to our GIG Room on Pollock Street. They work on school assignments, study for tests, read, and develop lifelong relationships. They also go on special fieldtrips and do service work to help others. We are always looking for volunteers who are interested in offering extra love and support to our children. If you are interested in learning more about our program or joining our amazing GIG family, please contact GIG director Debbie Fodrie.
