    High School Community Thrives on Church and State Partnership

    Ladies, I want to share with you a really cool “Caught Being Godly” story, and it involves a church and a public school!

    In a time when God is being kept out of everything having to do with government, especially in public schools, this story reminds us all of the amazing reasons why God is needed in schools more than ever.

    Roosevelt High School in Portland, Oregon, was a inner-city high school at risk of closure. Located in a high crime area, it was described as “the toughest urban high school in the city” by the district’s public schools superintendent, Carole Smith. Its usual full capacity of 1,200 students was barely covered with an enrollment down to 450. The school was in disarray, produced low graduation rates and had no football team due to poorly treated facilities. And the children were desperate for basic necessities. Then SouthLake Church came into the picture.

    What began as a one-day makeover that completely transformed the look and spirit of the school became an ongoing partnership. The school invited the church to set up a permanent presence in the facility so they could offer further assistance, services and Christian love to the students.

    The whole project was documented in a film titled Undivided, scheduled for release the beginning of next year. Watch the trailer below.

    I find this story so inspiring. And I believe that it shows how the love of Christ can come into an ugly situation and make it beautiful.

    Ladies, what do you think about this cool initiative?

    1. I am so excited to watch this! I live near there and know how that area struggles. I’m so thankful something like this has happened and I pray that it will be able to happen in other schools around the nation.
