Community Service

At NCCS, service is one of our Core Values. Mark 10:45 says, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many."

Our desire is to reach students with the good news of Jesus Christ and to help them become devoted followers of Christ. The best way to be the hands and feet of Christ is to serve others in His name. Throughout the year, there are numerous opportunities to participate in projects and events geared to give our students a chance to share the love of Christ.

Are you looking for an opportunity to serve? Check out the list of some of our partners below who offer a variety of ongoing projects. Also head over to http://www.volunteermatch.org/ for some ideas of service opportunities. Throughout the school year, we will promote other service opportunities as they come up on the Student Life Bulletin Board and Student Life social media.

Remember that if you plan on doing something for service that is not listed here, you must get approval from the Director of Student Life. Also, be sure to check out the new community service guidelines in the handbook to make sure your service activity will be honored. Once you have completed your community service, you should turn in the paperwork before May 1 to get your Community Service credit for the year. The form can be downloaded at the link to the right.

 

The following are ongoing community service opportunities

American Cancer Society- Atlanta Hope Lodge
The American Cancer Society is trying to make this difficult situation easier for cancer patients and their families through 22 Hope Lodges – free, temporary housing facilities for cancer patients who are undergoing treatment. But Hope Lodges are more than just a place to stay – they provide a home-like nurturing environment, so patients can get support from others going through the same experience. A cancer survivor’s recovery involves much more than medical treatments; it takes hope to heal. Hope Lodge offers the warmth and security of home in a setting where the love and encouragement of others enlighten and inspire guests. At Hope Lodge, guests rally around each other, building life-affirming connections and lifetime friendships.
