Our Ministry Partner
Front Range Christian School students once again team up with the ministry of Torchgrab Africa. Even through the pandemic, they have continued to help hundreds of vulnerable children living in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. FRCS partners specifically with Petra School on the Rock.

Petra School on the Rock was founded in 2007 in the slums of Nairobi by a pastor and educator, Hellen Nguthuri. Starting with just 8 students, Petra now has 540 students from pre-school through 8th grade who might not have any education at all if not for the ministry of Petra, a Christian school. Three-fourths come from single-parent homes and many are orphans with a guardian.

Due to COVID-19, schools in Kenya have been closed for over a year. Thankfully, several classes were able to start back at school in January! Torchgrab Africa and Petra School on the Rock have recently broken ground on a second location. The money we raise this Missions Month will help supply the new location with much needed windows!

What’s New This Year?
In previous years, FRCS students were given a dollar as “seed money.” They were encouraged to make their dollar grow by doing a variety of different things (make crafts/bake goods to sell, go door-to-door, etc.) Due to COVID-19, we are approaching the fundraiser a little differently this year.

Each classroom has created a video explaining the mission of Torchgrab Africa and Petra School on the Rock, that will be sent out to each family. We encourage families to then send the video out to their extended families and friends to help spread the word that Front Range Christian School is raising money for this amazing ministry!

We also encourage students to think how they can raise money in a safe way this year (do extra chores, etc.) to help raise money for Petra School on the Rock. Donations can be made in 3 easy ways! You can send cash or checks (payable to FRCS) directly to school or with your student, or you can donate online at frcs.org/missions-month.

FRCS students will also write letters to the students in Kenya. This is a tangible way for the students to connect with and encourage people across the world. We will also be dedicated in praying for the the students and families at Petra School on the Rock. We hope you will join us as we seek to love and minister to others across the world!

A Note About Fees
Please be aware that each donation by credit card or echeck is subject to processing fees, which does impact the amount actually sent to Petra School on the Rock. However, this small fee is the only one taken from online donations (cash or check donations made directly to the school incur no fees). The remainder of the money will all be sent to Torchgrab Africa for use by Petra School on the Rock. You may consider adding a couple of extra dollars to your online donation to cover fees, but this is entirely optional.
