After school visitors to the Glen Knoll Community Clubhouse may find themselves greeted by growing minds and smiling faces on Thursday afternoons. This school year, volunteers from the First Baptist Church of Wylie and educators at Cox Elementary have teamed up to help students not just get their homework done, but build relationships through support and guidance.
“You probably have heard the saying a thousand times that God works in mysterious ways,” Amy Ellis of FBC said. “God’s perfect plan is beyond our way of thinking, however. He chooses to use us to fulfill it! And that’s how our After-School Program at Glen Knoll began.”
Ellis said the program began through a partnership of four adults, one child of FBC Wylie and five Cox Elementary teachers (including the principle and assistant principle).
