Bellaire and Harrison Lane elementary schools and Hurst Junior High
Seventy percent of the students at Bellaire Elementary fall below the poverty level. FUMC Hurst provides a tutor/mentoring program, school supplies, spring and fall clothing drives, winter coat drive, and youth-sponsored Christmas shopping spree. Church members also volunteer by reading with at-risk students, helping pack food into backpacks to give to hungry children for the weekends, and in other short-term programs. In 2005 and 2007, FUMC Hurst received Outstanding Community Partner in Education awards for our work with Bellaire Elementary. The partnership with Hurst Junior High was formed in 2011. FUMCH Hurst has provided mentors for students, support for field trips, and undertook a "hoodie" drive in winter 2012. To learn how to get involved, contact Rev. Donna McKee.
