Community Outreach

A Few Words about Community Outreach

The Community Outreach committee was established to foster spiritual growth and discipleship among our students. It is a model of stewardship in action. While it serves to reinforce the values of compassion and empathy that are first introduced at home and in the classroom, the projects that we sponsor attempt to show the students that they can lend a hand by giving back to the community both through volunteerism, donations, and especially through random acts of kindness.

In addition to our volunteerism, Community Outreach holds a number of collections, food drives, toy drives, warm clothing drives, book drives and other outreach activities to help charitable organizations. On early dismissal Wednesday, middle school and junior high students volunteer in serving communities in need. These forms of service and giving are good examples of how we as Christians can live up to the one thing that God asks of us in Hebrews 10:24, "Let us think about each other and help each other to show love and do good deeds." Our duty as Jesus’ disciples is to walk in His footsteps as closely as we can. Our objective while on earth should not only be to recognize this light which He has given us, but to carry it and walk with it each day as best we can. Often times we ask ourselves, "Well what difference can I make?" The answer: You can make THE difference.
