Indian Nations Presbytery advocates for children in Oklahoma
"We believe that from a practical, and moral perspective, the lives of these children and youth can be, and needs to be, enhanced so that they can live to realize their fullest promise as citizens of Oklahoma, and our country.
"Furthermore, we believe that as a faith community, we have a responsibility to be a part of the solution. Therefore, we commit up to $25,000 in grant funds, which can be used by Indian Nations Presbytery churches to develop supportive school programs for children and youth.
"An example might be providing tutoring services. These programs should supplement and complement what social service agencies are already accomplishing. The programming would be developed in consultation with agencies providing supportive services, in order not to duplicate what is already available in communities.”
Our hope is that in partnering with local and state government leadership, the educational needs of Oklahoma’s youngest citizens may be realized. We believe that by serving Oklahoma’s children and youth, not only is the future of the state served, but Jesus Christ is, as well.
