10:10 BRIDGE AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM
This program represents a unique partnership between Lexington One Elementary Schools and Mt. Horeb. School staff identify and nominate children that would benefit from participating in our unique after school program.
10:10 Bridge is committed to providing spiritual, emotional, physical, social, and academic support for children in our community with a complex and diverse set of needs. Each day the children receive recreation time and academic assistance. In addition, each week provides new opportunities through life skills classes, academic curriculum-based activities, and Bible teaching.
How can I serve?
This year, programming will take place Tuesday through Thursday afternoons. There are many ways to serve including: being a mentor, helping with homework, helping in transportation, assembling to-go food, committing to pray for an individual child, or even subbing for any of these positions.
Important COVID-19 Updates:
High School Students are not able to serve at this time. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and out of high school.
Participant numbers are limited and there is a 1:1 ratio of mentors to children every day.
We are practicing social distancing, regular hand washing, wearing face coverings, and temperature checks of all individuals present.
There are new restrictions on shared materials and regular sanitization of all materials and programming space.
Contact Ellen Stewart for more information.
Mt. Horeb partners with Harvest Hope Food Bank and several local churches to provide food for hundreds of hungry children in Lexington School District 1. Each week on Friday afternoons recommended children receive child-friendly, nutritious, and easy-to-open food to take home for the weekend. To volunteer with the Backpack Program, contact Lesa Gray.
EmmanuWheel mobilizes volunteers to build wheelchair ramps and assist in home modifications for mobility-impaired individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford the cost of such modifications. By addressing a real and specific need, volunteers share the love of Christ with members of the household they are serving. The Mt. Horeb ramp team has constructed over 100 ramps, stairs, porches and decks for men, women and children who were not able to safely get in and out of their homes.
COVID-19 precautions are currently in place to protect homeowners and participants.
Please contact Joe Pinkham for more information or to serve. No previous experience necessary!

CONCESSIONS OF HOPE
Concessions of Hope provides meals at Hope Plaza in Columbia for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. A team from Mt. Horeb prepares and distributes individually packaged meals to an average of 150 individuals on the last Saturday of every month. This ministry of presence provides not just food for the body but also encouragement and nourishment for the soul.
COVID-19 precautions are in place to protect all volunteers and meal recipients.

The Prison Ministry spreads the Word and love of God to inmates in our local prison.
Prior to Covid-19, they met with inmates weekly for Bible study and fellowship. We hope to resume in- person studies in the future. Although we cannot meet with the inmates, Bibles are still being provided and distributed to interested inmates by the prison chaplain.
