Adopt-a-School

First McKinney has a great relationship with Finch Elementary through the Adopt-a-School program. The Adopt-a-School program reaches out to the teachers and staff at Title 1 schools by:

  • Mentors: these men and women are partnered with same gender students and come to Finch once a week during the lunch hour to play games, converse, and basically be a role model and trusted friend to one student. Flexible schedule options are given. 
  • Adopt-a-Class: typically a group of adult friends or Bible Fellowship Group classmates come together and share a classroom where they help the teacher read with students, act as homeroom moms for parties, and pray for the class schedule determined by volunteers and teacher. 

For more information about how you can get involved, please contact Marsha Rossell at marsha@firstmckinney.com.

Affirming the life of the preborn child, we provide medical and educational services to women in unplanned pregnancies and those who significantly influence them by encouraging Christ-centered, life-affirming and healthy decisions.

Our Vision
To value life and love well.

Services

  • Laboratory-quality Pregnancy Testing
  • Options Counseling
    • For those considering parenting: Resources and community referrals
    • For those considering adoption: Adoption agency referrals
    • For those considering abortion: Education on aboortion procedures
  • Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound - Used to confirm pregnancy, ultrasounds are offered based on medical assessment by the health care professional
  • Explanation of Abortion Procedures - Our medical team compassionately educated our patients on abortion procedures so they are fully informed.
  • STI Testing and Treatment - One in two sexually active young people get an STD by the age of 25. This poses a significant health risk to our patients as well as the child they are carrying.
  • Post-abortion Support Groups - Women are often surprised to find that abortion can be a traumatic experience. The grief and shame is often repressed or denied.  One in three women have chosen abortion. 

We offer a free and confidential Bible study to help these women find healing.

Athletics
Sports outreach is our way of connecting with other youth organizations, programs and communities. It is also a way for the youth to develop social competency, teamwork and leadership skills, as well as evolve personal ethics. Recreational sports teams are formed for youth members that do not make the school team. Often, developments of low self-esteem occur in these situations. Programs are implemented to help build confidence and conditioning so that they are comfortable to continue to strive for the goal they choose to achieve.

Community Service
Participating in community service projects and events expands perceptions of living and builds a sense of appreciation of living conditions outside of their own. Leadership, life skills, and team work are a few traits that are learned through experience. Through community service, the youth becomes more productive citizens who will be able and willing to give back to their community, actively develop healthier lifestyles and gain versatility.
