             Buderim
                Qld                 We’ve created this program as a practical way for Immanuel Church
               4556                 members to support and encourage people at our school. This is an
                                    opportunity to get involved by ‘adopting’ a Junior School class at Imman-
                                    uel College. You become a ‘mentor’ so that they can meet someone from
            5445 6894               our church and find out what we are like!

                                    Being a mentor doesn’t always mean being ‘up front’. It simply means
                                    being a friend and visiting regularly. It means joining in with a class in
                                    ways that work for you and them.

                                       •   Mentors commit to visit their class ideally once a week, but the
                                           minimum contact is fortnightly. So in a term the number of visits
admin.church @immanuel.qld.edu.au          might range between 5 and 10.

pastor.church@immanuel.qld.edu.au      •   Each mentor will receive orientation and be introduced to their
                                           class teacher. They can then discuss with the class teacher things
                                           that they might like to visit for or join in with. It’s about finding
                                           the ways and areas that work for you!
   •   Mentors are asked to support their teacher and class by praying for them         Immanuel Lutheran Church & Immanuel Lutheran College
       regularly.

   •   If it’s relevant a mentor can mention congregational ministries (like
