Joy in Service
A Core Value
HCA is committed to giving students the opportunity to use their gifts and talents to make a difference in the lives of others.* We believe that everything we have is a gift from God to be used to glorify Him and serve one another. Our calling is to be examples of God’s love in this world – because we’re grateful for His love to us! It’s so important to us that it’s one of HCA’s core values.
Why We Serve
There is no doubt that volunteering looks great on college applications, but that is not our primary reason for serving others. Through volunteering and service projects, we instill in our students the values of thankfulness, generosity, and service. It gives us joy to share the blessings God has given us and to see the impact we can have on others. In addition, most events are student-led, giving students the opportunity to practice the leadership, logistics, and people skills that will help them develop into the young adult they are striving to be.
How We Serve
Each student has many opportunities throughout the year to participate on and off campus through a variety of events. Read on for a list of ways we serve our community, other ministries, and our own school!
*Required service hours are for 9-12th grade only, but 6th-8th grade students are provided volunteer opportunities.
