An after-school ministry started by College Heights Christian Church in Joplin, Mo., continues to grow.

According to the Joplin Globe, the Neighborhood Life House this year has added a ballet class for elementary students and a sewing class for middle school students. A new mentoring program for middle school girls, called Upstream, also was slated to launch this school year.

“We want to help these girls through what we consider some really tough years with a lot of decisions to make,” NLH board member JoBeth Ellis told the newspaper. “It is going to be a lot of one-on-one, so these girls will know we are here for them.”

The Neighborhood Life House is located at the former site of North Joplin Christian Church.
