Ties bind local church to community school

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (BP) -- Crutcho School, located at the corner of Sooner Road and N.E. 23rd Street for more than 100 years, is a single-site, pre K-8th grade school in a low-income district. All of the students are eligible for free or reduced lunches, and the district is primarily Section 8 housing. Justin Ford, senior pastor at Oakdale Baptist Church in Edmond, Okla., recognized a need in the nearby Oklahoma City-area community in 2008. The church began to partner with the school, and the relationship still flourishes today.
