In hopes of continuing a heart of service in our students, our sixth graders serve locally and abroad. Locally, our sixth grade girls visit The Mustard Seed, a home for adults with developmental disabilities. The girls spend time with the Seedsters and serve in whatever capacity the Mustard Seed needs. For each holiday class party, our sixth graders take part in a service project, such as making homemade valentine cards for Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children. Abroad, our sixth grade students prepare and package boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Through these avenues of service, our sixth grade class is prepared to serve God’s kingdom in their homes, communities, churches, and future professions.
