The call in Jeremiah to “seek the peace and prosperity of the city” finds its echo in Jesus’s command of us to “love our neighbors as ourselves.” Service to the community is an expression of “loving our neighbors” and it should be central to the ethos of a Christian school. Thoughtful and helpful service would help students see the relevance and real impact of the Gospel in the world. Moreover, integrating what students learn in school with engagement in meaningful service to address significant problems in our society can fuel students’ spiritual journey and faith development.
We believe that young people can change the world and live an inspiring life, not only in the future, but also now.
Locally, our students learn to serve in CityServe, Shepherd’s Gate, Valley Care, Livermore Soup Kitchen, Kids Against Hunger, Operation Christmas Child, Club 412, and Joni & Friends Camp.
Internationally, our students travel to Mexico for building projects, Russia to teach English, and Ghana to working on water projects.
