Mentoring / Backpack Ministry


Members of The Church at Lake Cherokee, recognizing a need in area schools, are committed to MENTOR area children, youth and parents, with a special commitment to model a responsible male and female role.  In addition, members are available to tutor and read with children and youth in area schools.


An outreach service of Women's Ministries is a "backpack"service providing nutritious food items in a "backpack" to children of families in area schools who do not have sufficient food at home having eaten a noon meal in the school cafeteria.  Items include cereal, protein bars, canned fruit, canned meats, crackers, bottled water, and other similar individually packaged food items.

Participants in Kids Kount, the children and youth ministry of The Church at Lake Cherokee, pack the backpacks as a service project.
