Grace has the opportunity this year to encourage and share the love of God in a tangible way with the teachers and staff at Ramey Elementary School through Friends of Ramey, a one-to-one encouragement ministry.

When you become a Friend of Ramey, you’ll be matched with a teacher or staff member to encourage for the 2022-23 school year. 

We ask that you reach out to your staff member 2 times per month: once with a note, text, or email and once with a small gift (snack, gift card, pens, sticky notes etc.) not to exceed $10. The notes and small gifts may be dropped off at the Guest Services desk at our OJ or UB campuses on Sunday mornings or at Women’s Bible Study on Tuesday mornings or Wednesday evenings, and we will deliver them for you! You may also drop them off yourself at the Ramey Elementary School office (2000 N. Forest Avenue, Tyler, TX 75702) during school hours (7:00am-4:00pm, M-F).   

We also encourage you to pray for the person you’re matched with! This is a great way to share the kindness, care, and love of Jesus with our community as we come alongside these teachers and staff members who are daily working with students who face a multitude of economic, social, and learning challenges.
