In order to help fulfill our mission to educate and equip students to change the world for God’s glory, 皇冠体育官网 maintains a community service program that allows students to follow the example of Christ by serving others in the city of Macon, the state of Georgia, throughout the 美国, and across the world.
During the fall semester, Viking Nation participates in a School-wide Community Service Project, partnering with a ministry in an effort make a difference in various ways. In the fall semester of 2021, Viking Nation partnered with Campus 俱乐部, and raised enough funds to build Campus 俱乐部 a new library. In the fall of 2022, Viking Nation partnered with Covenant Care Adoptions in order to help with their Birth Mother Retreat.
Building the Foundation
Elementary Community Service
皇冠体育官网 builds a love for serving others starting in our lower school. Students in grades 3K – 5th grade participate in projects such as packing bags for Backpack Ministry, visiting local nursing homes, raising money for Christmas gifts, and helping at the local food bank.
In 中学, students begin to hone in on their service interests as well as explore opportunities through 皇冠体育官网's 中学 Service Day held in the spring. Likewise, they participate in service projects through middle school clubs.
Using Gifts to Serve Others
Service in 高中
In high school, 皇冠体育官网 students dive into how they can use their gifts to serve others. While students are required to give 120 hours of community service, many give more. Sixty of these hours have to be through face-to-face opportunities helping others in need, such as serving in local schools, 食物银行, at Campus 俱乐部 and more. One of the culminating projects for seniors is a Senior Service Day.
9th Grade Service Day
Each spring, 皇冠体育官网 hosts the Special Olympics on campus. Ninth grade students are partnered with athletes who compete in various track and field games. This day is full of energy, 兴奋, and everyone always leaves greatly encouraged and full of joy.
皇冠体育官网’s weekly chapels are an integral part of the student experience. Students enjoy worshiping and growing in faith together.
皇冠体育官网 offers multiple opportunities for students to develop godly leadership.
Sharing the Gospel
皇冠体育官网 students complete a mission trip in high school, either within the Macon community or elsewhere.
