On November 29th Trinity UMC in Southport served as the host site for the training of BEST For Kids tutors. These tutors will be matched with reading challenged children in the Brunswick County School system.

B.E.S.T. for Kids (Brunswick Early Success Team) is the combined effort of leaders from county government, business, faith-based, non-profit, and higher education. These leaders are working in partnership with Brunswick County School leaders to develop this special community-wide program which supports literacy development in the early grades.
Since the BEST For Kids program is very much aligned with our Congregations For Children (C4C) initiative, we are encouraging our church members to become involved. There are currently several tutors in the program from multiple United Methodist churches in Brunwswick County.
If you live in Brunswick County and are interested in serving as a BEST For Kids tutor, please contact Kathy Oliver at email@example.com
