We are pleased to serve the teachers and students right across the street at Northwood MIddle School. Over the years we have built a strong relationship with the staff at Northwood where we have the privilege of serving an end-of the year Appreciation Lunch for the teachers, hosting parenting classes, providing mentoring and invite low-income families to our Christmas Store.
God has opened doors of friendship with families of a nearby apartment complex so, during the year we invite the residents to join us in activities like:
- Wildfire Youth Group Nights - One Wednesday a month we bring games, snacks, worship and an encouraging message to the youth.
- Easter Egg Hunt - A crazy time for the young ones before Easter.
- Back-to-School BBQ - Before school starts, we serve a BBQ lunch and offer school supplies so that students can start the year ready!
- Christmas Store - We provide new toys, clothes and household items to give families a taste of God's generosity.
Communities In Schools of Kent administers a mentoring program in partnership with the Kent School District. This service is a personal one-on-one relationship with a caring adult. It is school-based, meaning all contact takes place at school during the school day. This means that the students relate the positive mentor relationship to school. Although this is not tutoring, studies have shown that students who have a mentor do well in school and have a higher chance of succeeding due to increased accountability and individualized support.

We've traveled from Hurricane Katrina relief in Louisiana, to Native American Bible School construction in California, to enhancing a Retreat Facility for victims of domestic violence in Alaska. Our call is to not only serve those who are on the front lines of ministry around the country, but also to grow and disciple the adults in our congregation to become great friends and servants of Jesus and of one another.
Wildfire Youth Group travels every year to serve others, sometimes in the US and sometimes abroad, to places like the tropical mountains of Jamaica, to the back alleys of Las Vegas and the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. Our heart for training our teens is to not only see the world in which we live, but to experience real needs and develop a heart of compassion and service.
Each Year True North Kids and the RCC family hosts a fun night for the families in our neighborhood. We provide games, contests, and LOTS of candy for parents who want to bring their kids to a safe and fun environment for Halloween.
