Serving at SRCS
The first shall be last and the last shall be first.
We believe that God calls us to look outside ourselves to see the needs of the people around us and work to serve them in whatever ways we can. At SRCS we want each of our students to begin experiencing this servant lifestyle from the beginning of their education. A Biblical worldview provides students with a respect and love for God’s creation. It helps them to approach others with understanding and grace. We encourage our students to take on responsibilities as servant leaders. It is by putting others first that true leaders make a difference. The best leaders give of themselves for the betterment of others, working to lead by example without the need for recognition or praise.
our students do more than just learn about the world- they change it.
Through outreach projects, service projects, Christian service hours, and student leadership initiatives, SRCS graduates leave for high school having built a habit of servant-leadership.
Missions and community outreach opportunities include:
- Food drives
- Used school supplies drives
- Various other drives
- Local service/outreach projects
- Operation Christmas Child
- Annual middle school gleaning project
Serving the world starts in our own community.
The Gleaning Project is an annual service project for our Middle Schoolers in which students and teachers join together at a local farm to pick leftover vegetables that will be donated to area food banks. Students gain a tangible perspective on food production and make real contributions toward ending hunger in the local community. God commands us to care for all people, and this project provides our students with a practical way of doing just that. In an average year, our students gather over 9,000 pounds of green peppers during the project, which translates to over 50,000 servings of vegetables.
