Because of all of you who supported our School Supply Drive, 1,135 kids in need received backpacks full of school supplies to start the new year strong. Many thanks to everyone who donated and served with us! What a joy it is to care for our community in Jesus’ name.

Back-to-school season offers some wonderful opportunities to go and be the church in our community, from providing school supplies for kids in need to praying for teachers and more. Explore these opportunities to love our neighbors by serving, giving, and praying with our Community Care ministry.

Pray for Our Schools

Every one of us passes at least one school in our neighborhood. Let’s be intentional about praying for the schools near us!

  • Take a walk by the school in your neighborhood in the evening, and pray for the students and staff of that school. You can do this on your own, with a friend, or with your kids.
  • As you slow down to drive through a school zone, take those extra moments to pray for that school.
  • Join our Moms of Teens prayer group here at Stonebriar to pray for our students. To learn more, reach out to Molly at

Whenever and wherever you pray, please pray for their safety. Pray for the kids to have a good day and learn lots of new things. Pray for the teachers and staff to have joy and patience. Pray for the students and teachers who are believers to show the love of Christ on their campus. Pray however the Spirit leads you, and lift up our local schools to His care.

Encourage Teachers & School Staff

Whether you have kids in school or not, everyone in our church family can be good neighbors to the schools around us! Here are a few ideas on how to do that:

  • Write encouraging notes for the staff of your local school, such as the teachers, school secretaries, and principals—and don’t forget the cafeteria and custodial staff!
  • Bake or buy some sweet treats to deliver to the office at your local school.
  • Support students and teachers by going to football games, concerts, or plays.
  • Ask if your local school needs volunteers to help with tutoring or other areas of support.

For more ideas and resources to help you love our local schools, come to our back to school Beyond These Walls meeting on Sunday, August 13!
