Community Service at Calvary
Community Service has been a trademark and source of pride at Calvary Christian School and is an integral part of the school’s mission. Scripture tells us in 1 John 3:18 "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech alone, but with actions..." and we seek to put that charge into practice at Calvary. We strategically partner with individual ministry organizations to assist in their efforts to bless others. Our goal for the Community Service Program is to reach out to the world and show God’s incredible love for His creation by building intimate relationships with these worthy organizations and developing true hearts for service in every Calvary child.
To meet our mission, Calvary has developed an in-depth Community Service Program for all children in preschool through eighth grade. During their years at Calvary, students will partner with a variety of different ministry organizations and experience a breadth of service opportunities. We believe that working with a variety of ministry opportunities develops compassion in our students by exposing them to the abundance of need in our world.
We know that when young people take on community service projects they benefit greatly from their volunteer work, gaining memorable experiences and building strong and admirable character traits. Through the students’ community service work, they are given the opportunity to see life from a cross section of perspectives, giving them a sense of humility and gratitude for their own lives. At Calvary, we inspire our children and families to view service not as an event, but as a way of life.
