Spring Break Service Trip – Apply by February 15
During Spring Break, a group of high school students and teachers will serve in our local community. (This trip was a part of CVCA life for 20 years before shutting down for COVID.) We will lodge at CVCA and then fan out each day to partner with a wide range of ministries. Our time will be spent in active and sacrificial ministry to the working poor people and people with special needs in our local communities. We will also have lots of fun!
Why serve? One of God’s distinctive calls in scripture is for Israel in Micah 6:8: “He has shown all you people what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” The diakonos organization (Greek for “servant”) is dedicated to providing CVCA students opportunities to minister to those clearly dear to God’s heart as well as to pursue personal righteousness.
Trip Dates: We will begin the week at the school at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 27, work Monday through Friday, and conclude at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, March 31.
Costs: The cost of $75 includes food, lodging, transportation, and possibly donations to some local ministry partners. If financial concerns are an issue, some scholarships are available.
More information and the trip application are HERE. Student applications are due by February 15.
