The Summit Christian Academy (SCA) Class of 2019 spent the remainder of summer vacation serving in Beckley, West Virginia as a part of SCA’s 15th annual Senior Mission Trip. The Senior Missions Trip is an opportunity to build class leadership and unity while also growing personally and spiritually and helping others in need, as seniors prepare to go beyond SCA after graduation.
Partnering with Praying Pelican Missions, the seniors served several different organizations during their week in Appalachia. Service opportunities included sorting donations to food pantries, debris clean-up at an extreme-sport youth camp, painting at a local church, property care for a community garden, nursing home visits, organizing at Salvation Army, and projects at a local Bible college.
“Our seniors gave of themselves every day with positive hearts and hard work, and made a tremendous impact,” shared Secondary Principal Joe Hesman. “God used them to touch the lives of this community and at the same time, He was touching their lives and drawing them closer to Him and each other. I am so impressed with this Senior class and their desire to start a fire of revival at SCA!”
The class had the opportunity to share their experiences with their classmates recently at the annual Senior Chapel and some said they will be forever changed by the experience.
