I am so excited about the opportunity to get back to service as a core activity of Traders Point Christian School. You may have already seen some of our communications about our month of service through Shepherd Community Center. If you haven’t heard about what we’re doing, please follow this link to our website to learn more.
We believe that it is essential for our students and school community to be able to act out our faith through service. Proverbs 19:17a (NIV) 17 Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward them for what they have done.
As we were looking for service opportunities, we looked for a place where we could have a variety of projects as well as a significant learning opportunity. The Shepherd Community Center provides that opportunity. We recognize that many of our students have not encountered significant poverty. Serving at Shepherd Community Center will provide a frame of reference for students we cannot duplicate in the classroom.
I am excited about this opportunity. I hope you and your family will join us. I’m looking forward to the outcome of our students understanding more about poverty and learning to serve those around them.
