The 'Serve' in Service Week Students Blessed by Helping Others

Service week at Klamath Falls (Ore.) Adventist Christian School gave the students several opportunities to share the love of Christ with friends and neighbors. Through service projects they learned the value of serving God while serving others. It also gave them an opportunity to learn ways to care for the planet.

One group of students helped several older church members prepare their yards for planting flowers by clearing away debris. Filling trash bags and taking them to the dumpster turned what would have been a chore at home into a time of fun while learning to work as a team.

Another day all the students picked up litter at Moore Park. After a picnic lunch and a story read by Bobi Crenshaw, teacher, everyone returned to the school feeling happy to have helped.

Other activities that week included making cards for shut-ins, cleaning the church fellowship hall and learning about the work of missionaries, including those working for ADRA.

Prior to their week of activities, the students presented the Sabbath church service at Klamath Falls Church. A main feature of the program included the students answering questions about their faith with verses of scripture.
