Congregation members mentor students once a week at Roguewood Elementary in Rockford. Prayer partners support the mentor and student through their time in prayer. Events will be planned throughout the year at the school to help strengthen this relationship. To learn more about Kids Hope USA, go to www.kidshopeusa.org. If you are interested in becoming a mentor to a student, please email Robin Rohen at office@blythefieldcrc.com
