Daybreak 10th Annual Back to School Carnival


Daybreak Ministries served 350 people in the Lincoln Heights Community at our 10th Annual Back to School Carnival on Saturday, August 4, 2017.

The kids of the Lincoln Heights Community played games, won tickets, received school supplies and ate lots food.

Daybreak partnered with several churches in the DMV area such as Revolution DC, McClean Bible Church, and Upper Marlboro Baptist Church and Anacostia River Church and other local nonprofits.

The 10th Annual Back to School Carnival was a huge success and we were able to give away all our backpacks to those in our community!


Thank you for attending this year’s carnival and we hope to see you next year!

I am DayBreak: Meet Derail!

Each week, our hope is to introduce you to someone in the DayBreak family so that you can get to know the kids, parents and volunteers.

Derail - 1st grade

Meet Derail! Derail is in 1st grade and became a part of the DayBreak family when he joined our summer program this year. I asked Derail some questions so that you could get to know him.

How old are you? 6 years old

Why do you like coming to DayBreak? Because it’s fun and we get to go outside.

What’s one thing you have learned about Jesus at DayBreak? He healed a blind man.

What’s your favorite thing to do at DayBreak? Play on the computer.

What’s your favorite book? A book about cars.

What do you like learning about when at school? Math

Why do you like having Ms. Tiffany as your DayBreak teacher? She let’s me get on the Leap Frog tablet and draw stuff.

We have enjoyed getting to know Derail and his family and are looking forward to watching him grow. Derail is in need of a Reading Partner, so if interested in being his reading buddy each week on either Monday or Thursday evenings, please let us know! Email Andrea Coleman for more details –



Highlights from the weekend!

We had a full, fun-filled Friday and Saturday last weekend. Friday was a “Fun Friday” and the kids in our After School Program went roller skating. Along with skating, they were also able to enjoy unlimited pizza and drinks!


On Saturday, we hosted the DC graduate chapters of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship who put together a math and science day for 2nd-5th graders. The children got to take part in a raffle, enjoy yummy food and participate in fun and engaging activities.

A total of 16 children participated in Saturday’s math and science day. We are very grateful for the opportunities the kids have to be exposed to activities in the STEM fields. Thank you, DMV InterVarsity graduate chapters for planning such a wonderful time for our DayBreak kids!
