Heart of the Rockies was one of founding Fort Collins faith communities that worked with Poudre School District to create Faith Volunteers in Poudre Schools. Now in its fourth year, faith communities are assigned to work with a specific school.
The kind of work we do with students and staff at Laurel Elementary School mirrors that of other volunteers and is not an avenue for evangelism. Our motivation is simply to serve the kids in ways that are helpful to the teachers and administration of Laurel Elementary. In addition to classroom work, our congregation provides other services, such as preparing Christmas gifts for eight homeless children that attend Laurel. For more information about the program, contact our church’s coordinator, Pam Deal (674-1280).
