Citywide Service Projects Dominated this Summer
Summer is officially over, but before we move on to a new season, we want to acknowledge the tremendous effort of local churches throughout the metro area to serve our community—especially our local schools over the summer months! This issue of our newsletter is dedicated to the army of volunteers who invested their time and energy in these ongoing partnerships.

The Statistics Do Tell a Story
How do you measure success? While numbers aren't always the best indication of how successful a particular program is or isn't, they often do "tell a story" about what is happening on a broader basis. Therefore, when Jen Hall of the SPN staff recently compiled the latest statistics on existing church/school partnerships which we've tracked in the metro area, we were all very interested to see what the "numbers" actually said!

In a state normally considered to be one of the "least churched states" in America, the strength of our current church and school partnership movement is significant—significant enough to garner attention from around the country!

Good Neighbor Project
While August public school cleanup days have become somewhat of a tradition in the Portland area, Pastor Gabe Kolstad of his Westside Community Church, along with his congregation, wanted to do something more. Partnering with the City of Beaverton and other local area non-profits, they are leading the "Good Neighbor Project" on Sunday, August 24th.
