THE SUMMIT exists to recruit and train mentors with a passion to...
EDUCATE children to excel academically in their studies through the help of 1-on-1 tutoring. We want to give children the confidence they need to excel in all aspects of life.
ENRICH the lives of children through the power of the gospel. We believe that the greatest positive impact we can have on a child’s life is through the message of Jesus Christ.
EMPOWER children to have confidence in their ability to succeed in education and life. We want to affirm the value and worth of each child as an image bearer of Christ and recognize the God-given talents, qualities, and skills that they possess as individuals.
SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM
In Shawnee, an alarmingly high number of children depend upon free or reduced lunches during the school year. The Summer Lunch Program is designed to provide a healthy meal to children who would be at risk of going without food during the summer. Mission Shawnee relies heavily on the dedication of volunteers to prepare and distribute lunches across three different locations in Shawnee. Children at each location receive a meal, listen to a Bible story, and participate in recreational activities with the volunteers at each location. Through the Summer Lunch Program, we hope to see mentoring relationships cultivated between volunteers and children that lead to more children being impacted through Mission Shawnee's mentoring program, The Summit. The Summer Lunch Program will take place between May 29th-August 3rd 2018, Monday-Friday. If you are interested in helping prepare or distribute meals please fill out the form below to get more information!
We believe one of the best ways to begin developing meaningful relationships with our neighbors is through sharing a meal together. Mission Shawnee partners with churches and individuals across the city to provide community meals every Sunday at 2:00pm and Thursday at 11:30am at Mission Shawnee.
