CYPRESS CHURCH ANNOUNCES ADOPT-A-SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP WITH HOOVER ES

Staff members from Cypress’ New Life Church visited Hoover Elementary School on Aug. 21 to surprise the staff with the official announcement that it would enter into an Adopt-a-School partnership with the neighboring CFISD campus.

CFISD’s Adopt-a-School program pairs schools with community and business partners to utilize resources of the community to strengthen and enrich the quality of education for students. New Life Church is Hoover’s first partner – the school opened this fall.

Located less than two miles from Hoover on FM 529, New Life Church and its staff – led by Lead Pastor Steve Weaver – had a vision that included four key components in building a relationship with its community. One is partnering with the community, Weaver said, moving the church outside of its walls.

“It’s to share God’s love for people and our community by our actions in a practical sense,” Weaver said. “Kind of like share the Gospel everywhere you go and use words when necessary. That’s why we’re here and we’re thrilled this opened up. It’s like God provided an opportunity for us to show the school, show the staff, show the community that they matter to God and they matter to us.”

The initial meeting came by chance. Hoover principal Michelle Rice conducted interviews for the new campus at a local coffee shop. She eventually met and sat with co-pastors Jordan (Steve’s son) and Sydney Weaver.

A meeting soon turned into a partnership. “I think it was something that both of us were looking for and needed to happen,” Rice said. “You have people that are willing, care about us and are vested just like we are. They’re as vested in this as we are because they want to give back to the community.”
