Faith Communities

Children play an important role in every faith tradition. Here are a few ways your faith community can get involved in this important movement.

  • Share your perspectives about young children during the service. What does your faith tell you about how young children should be treated? About the responsibility of adults? Of society?
  • Recognize parents/caregivers and early childhood professionals who are actively building the next generation through their work.
  • Hold a dialogue session with parents/caregivers. How can your faith community support them during their parenting journey?
  • Share a children’s message to connect the service to the youngest children in your faith community.
  • Participate in The State of the Young Child activities and share the facts and stories.
  • Consider letting someone from our organization address your faith community about our organization, our programs and The State of the Young Child in Pitt and Martin County.
  • Hold a supply drive for a high-quality childcare classroom. Early childhood professionals often spend their own money on supplies for their classrooms. We can help you get connected to a classroom.
  • Get social. “Like” us on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter, and share the news with your friends and followers.
  • Donate. Your community can make a big difference in the lives of young children when you work together. Have an idea for a fundraiser? Contact us.
  • Write a letter to the editor to show your support for funding programs that help all children success.
  • Contact your elected officials to tell them how important early childhood development is to our county and to our state.
