Service Opportunities

Stewardship Day

Stewardship Day is a wonderful opportunity for the students of Western to be the "hands and feet" of Christ in our surrounding communities.  This day, usually a Friday in October, is set aside for Western's Small Groups to be active in a variety of ways by offering service to individuals, agencies, and communities.  Some groups stay in Hull and collect food for local pantries, rake leaves, and do light construction/maintenance projects.  Other groups go to neighboring communities and find unique ways to serve: planting trees at parks, preparing mass mailings for Christian non-profit organizations, organizing and assembling boxes to be sent to various areas of the country and the world for relief projects.  These opportunities are a time of growth in our relationships with one another, but they also put our faith into action.

START

Students are also given the opportunity to participate in the START summer mission trip. START (Summer Training and Reach Out Team) is a multi-cultural opportunity offered to Western students bi-annually for three weeks in July.  Students and faculty sponsors live and worship with church families from congregations in Mexico.  While on START, students are active in many construction and manual labor service opportunities.  While in Mexico, participants learn a lot of the language and culture from being completely immersed in it.

Teacher Assistants

Students at Western are also given the opportunity to volunteer as teacher assistants at Hull Christian School.  High school students are assigned a grade level and teacher to work next to on a daily or weekly basis.  Students are encouraged to establish positive working relationships with both the teacher and students in those situations.  A journal of these experiences is kept by the Western student and monitored by a Western faculty member.
