Join us in helping more than 100 children in Inwood, survive the toughest week of their young lives: NY State Testing Week. These tests are no joke. Watch the video below to find out why they’re so important but also so, extremely difficult — Liz shares a question from one and you won’t BELIEVE what grade level it’s for.
To help, our faith family is coming together to bless the children and teachers in Inwood by packing giftbags with snacks and notes of encouragement that will help keep students full, focused and hopefully a little more confident when they walk into testing this April.
You can help by bringing any of the following items to church this Sunday morning March 27, or by signing up to help serve or provide food for a teacher breakfast at the start of testing week (April 5th). Email email@example.com to sign up.
Items to donate:
- Non-peanut granola bars
- Organic Juice Boxes
- Blow pops (lollipops with gum)
- Money to support a contribution of school supplies (ECC is purchasing in bulk, and you can help defray the $250 cost)
On Sunday April 3rd, after service, we’ll assemble the bags together as a church, so plan to be there!

The Everyday Youth Group is alive and well, and even making headlines!
A few weeks ago at the height of the silly viral Youtube phenomenon called “The Harlem Shake,” we recorded our own version. A local online news publication called DNAinfo.com included our video in a story here. Then that same story was picked up by AM New York, a commuter paper that goes out to about 350K subway riders. You can watch the video here: Everyday Youth Group Harlem Shake.
We’re not sure how God might use this, but there are so many kids in NYC who do not know Christ. Please pray that God would provide opportunities to get more and more kids involved with this youth group whether it is through the funny video we made, or any other way. Thank you for your prayers.
