One of our theme verses at Dock Mennonite Academy for the 2016-17 school year is Ephesians 3:18-19:
“…..to grasp how wide and long, and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
As a tangible way to share the love of Christ, students on both campuses engage in serving area non-profit organizations. Recently, on September 30, 380 high school students and faculty members fanned out into the community to serve 25 non-profit organizations spanning from Philadelphia to Collegeville to Quakertown. These non-profits included camps, retirement communities, child care centers, historical organizations, food pantries, thrift shops, farms, and social service organizations. Students on the EC-Grade 8 campus serve organizations through clubs as well as grade-level and school-wide projects.
In addition to service opportunities organized through the school, many students are also involved in serving the community during their own personal time. Students share the joy of service encounters during chapels and classroom presentations.
As Christians, serving others is a direct expression of our love for Christ and our love for others. We have the privilege of administering God’s grace to others by being God’s hands, feet, and voice to people who have specific needs in their lives.
Thank you for the vital service you have provided for Dock over the years as a generous supporter. Please consider giving a gift for the Annual Fund to provide an education that offers opportunities for students to grow in their faith, knowledge, and passion for service. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that you helped students discover lives of purpose.
