Washington Elementary School
At Eastminster we LOVE our city! We want to see the Lord bless and redeem Wichita, and we want to be an active part of seeing it thrive. One way we do this is by partnering with Washington Elementary School, which serves families in the 259 district. Our goal is to serve and bless the teachers, staff, kids and families at Washington and display the love of Jesus in tangible ways. Our local missions team works closely with Washington leadership to identify the school’s unique needs and then seeks to meet those needs however we can.
