Service Week at Community Christian School

Service Week at Community Christian School

Every year, Community Christian School students take one week out of the school year to perform community service around the Golden Triangle. CCS’s junior high volunteered at the Salvation Army, Stable Spirit, the Sharing Station and Little White Crosses.

This year, the high school students teamed up with Samaritan’s Purse to help the flood victims of Deweyville and surrounding areas clean out their homes, tear out walls and floors, spray and disinfect the studs, visit with the homeowners, and perform countless other tasks. But the most touching part of the week working with the flood victims, they say, was being a part of Samaritan’s Purse ministry of giving disaster victims a brand new Bible. Everyone who participated in working on the home signed the Bible, and prayed with the homeowners. The work took the students and teachers out of their comfort zone, but was completely rewarding and eye opening, according to CCS. There are still many flood victims displaced who are living outside in tents, open sheds, or are staying with friends and family. Samaritan’s Purse is still in need of volunteers to help. When Community Christian’s student volunteers leave Samaritan’s Purse, their workforce will go from 80 to 20 workers. Visit www.samaritanspurse.org for more information. CCS is at 400 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Orange.
