Central Peninsula Church Promotes Redwood City Reads!

A Message For CPC Members

Redwood City Reads is one of CPC’s “For Our Neighbor” service opportunities. It’s part of Generations United that Angie Ibarra started. She attends Peninsula Covenant Church and has a passion for low income families in Redwood City.  She is in the process of building teams for the upcoming school year and is expanding the work on the KIPP Excellencia campus (formerly Fair Oaks campus). As the summer season wraps up, Angie would love to know if the CPC family of believers would like to reach out to this community. Would you like to be part of serving these children and showing them the love of Jesus?

There are many ways to get involved. One is to be part of Redwood City Reads by reading once a week with a child so they don’t fall behind in learning English. Perhaps you’d like to make a gift bag for a teacher or assemble backpacks with Angie’s team. Here’s a video about the work of Generations United. I’ve been helping children read for a few years at this school through Angie’s organization, and it has been a joy and privilege to see them progress and not fall behind in their classes.

Email me if you’re interested in any of these ways to serve or have questions at jmarshall@cpc.org
