Children & Youth Programs
4th & 5th Grade Linden STEM Elementary Students
On Thursday mornings, we host 4th & 5th graders from Linden STEM Elementary through our partnership with Reset, Inc. Reset is a program that provides an hour of Bible teaching to elementary students during the school week and is led by volunteers from the community and NAPC. We started 3 years ago with 10-12 students, and now serve almost 25 students per session with plans to add at least one more session in 23-24 school year!

Through our partnership with We Are Linden, up to 20 students ages 11-17 gather at our facility 1-2 times per week (currently on Tuesdays) for a 6-week session focusing on developing discipline, self-esteem and life skills. Volunteers from the community oversee the program which is funded by Columbus Urban League. The program is on it’s second group of students with plans to continue 3 per school year.

Middle school students meet every Monday and Wednesday from dismissal until 7pm. Each week the Parable Project Program Director and a team of volunteers lead up to 15 students in activities and group time focusing on discipleship, mentoring, fellowship, life-skill development, and assistance with education. We also provide meals to every student who attends.
