HANDS IN SERVICE
“The students that come to my home are excellent! I wish they could come every day. They really are the nicest group of kids, they work hard, with no attitude. I am so very thankful to them and Hands In Service” a client participating in the KCS partnership with Hands in Service.
The Hands in Service staff would like to thank all the students, parents, teachers and administration who have partnered with us to meet a variety of needs of people in our community. For those that aren’t familiar, our Grade 11 and 12 students have been partnering with Hands in Service as part of their Social Justice and Christian Perspectives classes. Hands in Service gives support to low-income people aged 19-65 who need help with such basics as housekeeping, laundry and food preparation due to health, mobility and disability. For the last two years, our students have gone twice each week to the homes of various clients. The students have washed dishes, cleaned bathrooms, swept, mopped, listened and cared. Check out the KCS Youth Action Teams at Work.
Adult supervision to guide the students is a critical component without which this program cannot exist. It's a great opportunity to add some mentoring, missional focus and meaning with a maximum investment of 4 hours of month. We would love for you to consider how this opportunity might be able to fit into your schedule. Please contact Ruth at Hands in Service at 250-861-5465 for more information.
Great things are happening at Kelowna Christian School. We are excited to see our KCS community continue to grow, but it's not about the numbers and getting more students to attend our school. It's about our mission to educate, equip, and inspire our school community to become disciples of Jesus who love and serve God and others. Our desire is to attract new families to join our KCS community, those who would both strengthen our community, as well as be blessed by the education KCS has to offer (fulfilling our mission). More than anything else, as we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year, we want to be good stewards of the school God had entrusted us to manage. The KCS Family Referral Program awards $1000 tuition credit for each new Grade 5 family that enrolls in our school, and $500 tuition credit towards new families enrolling in other grade levels.
