La Estrella Resplandeciente

La Estrella Resplandeciente (The Shining Star) meets on Saturdays in a church building in Springhope, NC. On Hwy 97

La Estrella is a joint mission of the Capital and Heritage districts of the NC Conference. It weaves together the Church’s work in welcoming the stranger and serving children and their families in an example of Christian unity.

Our Saturday programming includes:
+ Worship & devotion
+ Tutoring in reading and math
+ Enrichment activities (science experiments, arts & crafts, etc.)
+ Recreation
+ Nutritious meal and snacks
+ Field Trips are offered quarterly throughout the year, including trips to museums, universities,
local farms, etc.
