Every year Community Christian School takes one week out of the school year to do community service around the Golden Triangle.  CCS’s junior high volunteered at the Salvation Army, Stable Spirit, the Sharing Station, and the Little White Crosses.

This year the high school students teamed up with Samaritan’s Purse to help the flood victims of Deweyville and surrounding areas clean out their homes, tear out walls and floors, sprayed and disinfected the house studs, visited with the homeowners, and countless other tasks.  The most touching part of the week working with the flood victims was being a part of Samaritan’s Purse ministry of giving disaster victims a brand new Bible.  Everyone who participated in working on the home signed the Bible, and prayed with the home owners.  The work took the students and teachers out of their comfort zone, but was completely rewarding and eye opening.  There are still many flood victims displaced who are living outside in tents, or open sheds, or are staying with friends and family.  Samaritan’s Purse is still in need of volunteers to help.  When Community Christian’s student volunteers leave Samaritan’s Purse, their work force will go from 80 to 20 workers.  Please contact Samaritan’s Purse for more information http://www.samaritanspurse.org/.

OCC Dallas - 12-11-2015 - Arriving with shoeboxes2








On December 11, 2015, several 11th grade students from Community Christian School traveled to Dallas to volunteer their Friday evening at Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child’s Processing Center.   Each holiday season from Thanksgiving through the week before Christmas, the Operation Christmas Child ministry sets up temporary collection warehouses in several cities throughout the United States, including Dallas, to receive shoe boxes filled with gifts and toys which have been donated by local churches and individuals.   The CCS students inspected hundreds of toy-filled shoe boxes to prepare them for final shipping to churches and missionaries worldwide who will give the shoe boxes and Bibles to children to share the message of Jesus.  At the end of their volunteer shift, the CCS students were excited to learn that over 600,000 toy-filled shoe boxes had been processed at the Dallas facility alone since Thanksgiving.   Pictured:   (front row)  Valerie Leblue, Mia Yellott, India Alexander; (back row)  Josh Howard, Chad Hughes, Justin Meaux, Nathan Rose, Tyler Bevlaqua, Blake Dupre.  Not pictured: Sponsors:  Sharon Monk, Ledena Howard, Steve Howard

Community Christian School’s See You At The Pole/Grandparents’ Day was their biggest turnout to date.  Students, teachers, parents, and grandparents united together in prayer which then kicked off Grandparents’ Day.  The 7th – 12th grade students enjoyed breakfast with their grandparents and elementary students presented their grandparents with hand crafted gifts.  To top it all off, the Grandparents’ Day program was so precious with kindergarten student, Kenli Vacek, opening the program with prayer, a performance by our worship team, and a moving message from grandparent and athletic/spiritual director, Darla Brack.  The hit of the program was the interviews of several kindergarten, first, and second grade students.  First grade student, Josiah Smith’s, reply when asked what he would do when he is a grandparent was, “I will give all of my grandkids lollipops so they will leave me alone because I will be old.”
