For several years, Rolling Hills Community Church has been coming alongside students and staff at Bridgeport Elementary. The congregation is encouraged to spend time each week volunteering as a lunch or homework “buddy,” to fill backpacks with food each Friday for kids who otherwise may go hungry over the weekend, and support the school staff in various ways throughout the year. Senior Pastor Bill Towne (who serves as a lunch buddy himself each week!) says that the church’s relationship with Bridgeport is continuing to deepen. The church is also in the process of building a “Community Life Center” that will become a focal point of ministry to the needs of families in the community.
