Back-to-school local outreach opportunities

These are some tangible ways to Serve Our World right in our own backyard.

Worship Center can lead people that we would otherwise miss into a growing relationship with Jesus. We have a remarkable opportunity to reach our local community with the love of Jesus by partnering with the School District of Lancaster. Since students will begin the year online, we want to help the most vulnerable of them through two different opportunities.


Worship Center has connections within the School District of Lancaster. James Buchanan Elementary School is located in the West part of Lancaster City. Like many people in our area, Buchanan families are facing the difficult hurdle of virtual learning for their children. Many families must choose between making a sustainable income and giving their child the academic support they need. Worship Center can help. 
James Buchanan Elementary staff have reached out to our church to be a part of the solution. We have the ability to host a safe and healthy environment for kids to participate in their online learning while their parents are working. This keeps kids out of the left at home scenario. 
Worship Center is hosting a learning environment called Camp Champion for 25 children hand picked by the school district at an area church.


Financial - There will be multiple expenses in hosting a learning environment like cleaning, supplies, and utilities. Click here and select "Lancaster Schools" from the dropdown menu to give. 
Volunteers - There is a need for volunteers at multiple levels of time commitment. Click here to learn more and to sign up as a volunteer.


The Mix, a local, gospel-centered environment for students, is looking to offer academic, social and emotional support to those students and working families who attend SDOL. Their desire is to provide access to a safe place for students to learn and grown during virtual school days beginning September 8th from 8:30am-3:00pm



Financial - An additional $3,000-$4,000 per week to cover costs of staffing, supplies, facility upkeep. Click here to give financially to The Mix.

Volunteers - The Mix needs additional volunteers. Contact Marisol Santos at
