We want to be faithful partners in our city. Therefore, Central's Ignite Initiative provides $525,000 over the next three years for local missions. We want to pour more money, more volunteers, more time and energy into what our Lord is doing right here in Amarillo.
The Bible says we are created by God to do good works which he has prepared in advance for us to do. And those good works are all around us. We believe our deeper partnership with Bivins Elementary provides more opportunity for Christian ministry and more potential for God’s salvation.
FUNDS FOR BIVINS ELEMENTARY
Ignite funds will be used to purchase the following items for Bivins Elementary.
• Desks for Special Needs Students
• P.E. Equipment
