Project Faith 2021
Our all-school fundraiser and service project will be held on Friday, April 30th.
To celebrate our 20th year of Project Faith, we will serve TWO worthy locations. We will return to HopeTree Family Services, located in Salem, VA, where we worked last year, and we will also serve Mill Mountain Zoo.
- Mill Mountain Zoo was founded in 1952 and continues its mission to promote an appreciation and understanding of wildlife and preservation through quality exhibits and educational programs.
- Through a wide variety of programs, HopeTree carries out its mission to provide Christian residential, educational, and support services to at-risk children and youth and their families, and to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
The Lower School students will serve at Mill Mountain Zoo while Middle and Upper School students will serve at HopeTree.
This year nearly 500 students, parents, faculty, and alumni will serve Mill Mountain Zoo and HopeTree Family Services by painting, cleaning, landscaping, repairing, and organizing. These are projects the organizations simply would not be able to complete due to budget and personnel constraints. Faith Christian School is honored to serve these fine non-profit organizations.
Each year we choose a verse to inspire our work. This year's verse is:
"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
