Project Read is an outreach ministry to serve struggling readers in local elementary schools within Grapevine-Colleyville ISD. Â From late September through late May, volunteers meet with their assigned students once a week for 30 minutes during school hours under the direction of the studentâ€™s teacher. Â The scheduled time is based on the studentâ€™s availability and teacherâ€™s classroom schedule. Â It is a fun and uplifting opportunity to connect with the community and to find your own blessings along the way. Volunteers must complete the GCISD Volunteer application process and background checks each school year.

Our church partners with FUMC Grapevine to provide weekend meals for children living in poverty in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD. Each school year we partner with five schools: Glenhope Elementary, Colleyville Heritage Elementary School, Cross Timbers Middle School, and Colleyville Heritage Middle School, and Colleyville Heritage High School. Each week a group in our church packs and delivers the meals to the school, so that no child in our school district has to go without food during the weekend.
Project Transformation is a group that grew out of the Central Texas Conference, that works each summer to create leadership opportunities for college-age young adults, and engaging, educational summer programs for young students.
