Service Learning

Service LearningIMG_6863

We believe in a hands-on approach to service. One of our core values is influencing social change through our service and leadership. We don’t just talk about God’s Word; we live it in our daily lives and outreach programs.

Urban Up is the service learning arm of the Campus Ministry office. This is when the student body gives back, serves, and ministers to it’s city. Some examples are helping out at the food pantry, serving the homeless through soup kitchens and Winter Patrol, ministering to the refugees in South County, and helping the local churches. Urban Up happens on various Saturdays through out each semester and is updated at the beginning of each semester. Every student is invited and encouraged to be a part.

Let us remember the words of Paul appeal to the Corinthians, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich” (2 Cor. 8:9, ESV). Christ became poor so that we might become rich in him. In the same way, let us lay down our livelihood for the sake of those often neglected.
