Reaching out to the world around us

Coastline Christian Academy students are given hands-on opportunities to give a cup of cold water in the name of Jesus, as they reach out and care for our community and the world at large.

Each class participates in an ongoing service project. The youngest students make cards for shut-ins and military personnel deployed overseas. Other students visit assisted living facilities and facilities for the memory impaired, manufacture braille books consisting of portions of the Bible, and volunteer at the local food bank.

Several times a year, all grades participate in preparing bags of food and other practical items for “our neighbors without homes,” commonly known as “the homeless” in our community. The students bring completed bags home, and along with their parents, distribute them locally where needs arise.

Some junior high classes have the privilege of going on a missions trip, either overseas or domestically.

Other areas of service have included, but are not limited to, collecting blankets and jackets for a local shelter and participating in Stop Hunger Now and Operation Christmas Child. Opportunities may vary from year to year.

Through these service projects, students grow in their compassion and care for those in need. They develop a vision of seeing beyond their own personal needs and showing love to others.
