Students in Action
MCA students are continually learning to model Jesus' life of servant leadership by investing in the lives of others. Project Serve allows the students this opportunity by:
- developing within each student a heart for Christian service.
- providing each student an experience of impacting the lives of others.
- impacting and showing the love of Christ to our community.
Lower School students (TK-5th) and Middle School students (6th – 8th) participate in group service projects with their grade level each semester, and Upper School students (9th-12th) are involved in group service projects through their Bible classes. Athletic teams and Extra-Curricular groups participate in service projects as well.
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.
