impacting our school communities

Every public school mom in Guilford County has something to give. The support we offer to our school communities will look different for each mom because we are all different: that is the beauty of the body of Christ in action. 

Here you'll find ways to volunteer with Gathered and other respected organizations serving our schools. This is only a beginning, so check back often!

Moms in Prayer impacts children and schools by gathering women to pray.

Across our area, moms gather weekly in school-specific groups to pray over their children and their school communities. Moms in Prayer provides resources and a simple, structured method of prayer, making it easy to join with other women to regularly lift your children and their school to the Lord.

In Young Life, adult leaders build friendships with high school students on their own turf, invite them to follow Christ, care for them regardless of their response, and change lives in the process.
