LIFT (Learning Is Fun Together)
LIFT, which stands for Learning Is Fun Together, is an after-school program started in 2006 when Trinity United Methodist Church (now North Pointe United Methodist Church) was seeking a way to address issues in its neighborhood around 3 Mile Road and Erie Street. Since its inception, LIFT has been held at the nearby Lighthouse Point Townhomes on Shelbourne Court. Over the years, there have been a number of volunteers from the church, the community, and area high schools who have tutored and mentored the children. Support from the church has helped supply books, snacks, school supplies, family food baskets, and other special events. The management at Lighthouse Point Townhomes has also worked closely with LIFT to help make the program successful.
