Our new school partnership is up and running! Matches are being made between adults from First UMC and children who are new to our Dodge City Schools from another country. These “First Friends” will interact with a child over the course of the school year, helping them grow in their confidence in using English. This fall, a team of leaders from First UMC along with administration and staff of USD 443 have been partnering to make this great program happen! Do YOU want to be involved? Contact Melyssa White or Rev. Lance Carrithers today at First UMC, 210 Soule, Dodge City. 620-227-8181. See the great “First Friends” VIDEO on this page to learn what a difference an adult friend can make!
