10 Hours: Local Church
Every member of the freshman class is required to complete 10 hours of service during their 9th grade year. Ideally these hours should be completed within a local church ministry, but we allow students to serve with other agencies if their church does not offer service opportunities.
Deadline: June 1, 9th Grade Year
40 Hours in the Community
What: Every student will complete a 40 hour service project sometime during their sophomore / junior years.
When: Students may complete these 40 hours anytime between June of their Freshman year and May of their Junior year. What we want is for each student to find an area of service that connects with their interests and gifts.
Where: A student may serve with any organization whose purpose is to bring help and health to an area of God’s creation. Students are free to work with a local church as long as the project extends out to the greater community.
Examples: Homeless Shelters, Retirement Homes, Environmental Agencies, Developmentally Disabled, Coaching Youth Sports, Affordable Housing, Tutoring, Health Care, Literacy Programs, Community Arts Programs, Guide Dog Training, Animal Shelters, City Parks, Local Government, Museums, Zoos, Voter Registration, Aquariums, National Parks and Mission Trips.
