God calls us to service in I Peter 4: 10 where He says “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

Helping children develop gratitude for God’s grace and the desire to show His love to others is at the heart of our schools’ mission. Here are a few ways we help students learn to serve those around them and their community:


Each spring, the students at CCHS take a week off school to serve locally, in regional communities and internationally. It’s no easy task fundraising and coordinating this week but it is worth it! Freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors get the opportunity to serve as a class yard work in Northwest Indiana to caring for underprivileged children in Guatemala. Not only can our students be a blessing to others, but they are also blessed by learning more about God’s world and His people.


DMC students dedicate one month out of the school year to particularly emphasize service in their families, school and community. Each class chooses a small service project to work on ranging from baking cookies for local first responders in the DeMotte community to cleaning up the school grounds. While we focus on service all year long, this month helps us clearly focus on God’s calling to serve.


Students in grades 6-8 can participate in our Students That Are Readily Serving (STARS) program. This program encourages our junior high students to serve in their communities. Students who complete at least 3 hours of a service project each quarter are recognized for their service. Those who complete twelve consecutive quarters of STARS achievement are acknowledged at the 8th Grade Banquet!

Students in grades 9-12 are required to serve 6 hours per semester in their local communities. Our communities are stronger when we work together and service hours are a great way for our students to show God’s love to those around them!
