Community Service

A mother and son enjoy community service time together.

“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.” Mark 10:45

At NCCS, service is one of our core values. Our desire is to reach students with the good news of Jesus Christ and to help them become the hands and feet of Christ as they serve others in His name.

Throughout the year, students participate in many projects and events designed to mold them into believers who are “doers of the word,” learning to love others well (James 1:22).


At NCCS, students who have reached certain milestones in community service are recognized during graduation.

SECOND MILE AWARDStudents who have completed 150 hours or more over their upper school career will receive the Second Mile award. 

I'M THIRD AWARDStudents who have gone above and beyond and completed over 300 hours of community service during their upper school career earn the I'm Third Award. 

In the class of 2018, Kathleen Sutz completed 1,000 hours of community service over her high school career. It was a part of the way that God made her. Kathleen was kind and helpful and always looking for opportunities to use her gifts to serve others. Kathleen passed away in the spring before her graduation, but our heart is to continue to honor her commitment to modeling what it looks like to follow Christ in loving others well. The Kathleen Sutz Memorial Service Award is awarded to the student in each graduating class who has served the most hours over their high school career.

The Benefits of Community Service at NCCS

In addition to showing the character of Christ, participating in community service also equips students for their futures.

In preparation for college application and acceptance, students are encouraged to develop a resume, which should include a wide variety of legitimate community service activities, outside of regular church or school-related opportunities.

By participating in community service at North Cobb Christian School, students are paving the way for the college admissions process and beyond.

NCCS students help out at a nonprofit organization.
