Touch A Life | Ghana, West Africa
Sponsor a Child
First Coppell is teaming up to increase our commitment to stand in the gap and help empower children who are at risk in Ghana, West Africa. Touch A Life is the only long term rehabilitative care center in Ghana, providing school, housing, uniforms and more for youth. See the 2 opportunities below to get involved in a very personal way. Learn more about the Touch a Life Foundation.
1. Touch A Life Prayer Partnership – Our Ghana Mission Team will provide bio information and a photo of one of the many children and teenagers at Touch A Life in Ghana. Any church member can take a bio card, keep it, and pray regularly for their child.
2. Touch A Life Interactive Monthly Partnership – If you would like a more personal monthly regular interaction with a child/teen/young adult being housed and educated by Touch A Life in Ghana, our Ghana Mission Team has a year long program to provide the ability for your family and a TAL child to engage. For a minimum donation to Touch A Life of $10.00 per month, we will host a monthly interaction for you and your “adopted” child, which includes a one on one zoom, getting to know you questions, crafts, games, etc. The activities are preset (easy!) and have been used by other groups within Touch A Life with great success. Anyone is welcome to join us, including young families

Building Friendships & Foundations
For over 20 years, First Coppell has been sending supplies, building churches, repairing schools, and leading VBS for children in Costa Rica.

Lydia Patterson Institute | El Paso, Texas
Sponsor a Student’s Education
The Lydia Patterson Institute (LPI) in El Paso, Texas provides access to quality education for underserved members of the community. More than 400 students attend LPI; the majority call Juarez home and make the daily commute across the border to attend school. More than 95% of LPI students graduate and 98% of graduates attend colleges across the United States.
First Coppell serves LPI through a number of initiatives. Each year, the church provides a $4,500 scholarship, which covers a school uniform, textbooks, and meals for one student. The church also provides gift cards for every Lydia Patterson teacher during the Christmas season to provide their families with a holiday meal. When available, First Coppell also hosts a summer LPI intern who lives with a host family in Coppell, and the student is trained in church and ministry operations.
