Northside Christian Church Honored for Service to Students
During their December Board meeting, the Klein ISD Board of Trustees honored Northside Christian Church with the Stand Up for Texas Public Schools award. As active participants in the Superintendent’s Clergy Advisory Group, church members tirelessly pursue opportunities to serve in Klein ISD.
Vicki Sommerwerck, Northside Christian Church’s Mission Minister says for many church members, the partnership is personal.
“Many of us are former Klein ISD students,” Sommerwerck said. “We really take seriously the call to impact our community positively.”
As part of the partnership, the church adopted Roth Elementary and provides 12 mentors, three classroom readers, and six library helpers on a regular basis in addition to donating $22,500 to sponsor Great Expectation coaching for every student and staff member at the school.
But their partnership goes well beyond the walls of Roth. Church members have donated new socks, underwear, clothing, and school supplies to a number of Klein ISD campuses. In the days that followed Hurricane Harvey, Northside Christian Church responded to the needs of the community with the Generosity Feeds event. Within two hours, 15,000 meals were provided to Klein ISD students, staff and families. In addition to those meals, church members provided campuses with boxes of non-perishable food items for distribution to students’ families in need.
Northside Christian Church also hosts annual training for the Klein ISD Special Education department and provides donations for district counselors. During the presentation, Deputy Superintendent Jenny McGown expressed her gratitude, “We are extremely grateful for the leadership and members of Northside Christian Church for their dedication to public education and for their unwavering commitment to our Klein ISD community.”
