Each summer the campus grounds are full of love and life when the children from Serna Elementary arrive to take part in our 5-week tutoring program. This program employs certified teachers to continue teaching our community’s students to prevent loss of knowledge in math and reading, provide breakfast and lunch for many who would otherwise go hungry, and encourage and grow the students during the fun afternoon activities. 

Learn about the summer enrichment program hosted annually at Church of Reconciliation. The program serves the children who attend Serna Elementary School and is a collaborative effort of teachers, church and neighborhood volunteers, high school students interested in education. Check out our events calendar for this years' dates.
