Reimagined... Ministry: A Movement more than a Moment.
Traditionally, The Salt and Light Serve-a-thon has been a day dedicated to service.
Veritas students and faculty put academics aside for a day to go out into the community and serve our community at nursing homes, food pantries, hospitals, The Very Special Art Festival, and beyond. Due to COVID-19, we are REIMAGINING what this year's Serve-a-thon will look like. This is our 8th Annual Year of Service.
The PTF Executive Team has been prayerfully organizing and coordinating over the past few months, knowing that our service to the community will be a bit different due to restrictions and other necessary changes from years past.
"How can we still love our neighbors well during this time?"
At the heart, we want our students to learn the value of serving their community throughout the year, not just on one day. We see great significance in being the hands and feet of Jesus whenever possible. This can start in our own neighborhoods, move throughout our city, and spread all over the world as pictured in Acts 1:8.
Therefore, we are calling this year, "Reimagine… Ministry: A Movement more than a Moment."
To this end, every grade level will be assigned a charity this year that they will serve on campus, more frequently, but for shorter periods of time. These organizations will vary from grounds cleanup at Veritas, to local food pantries, to a global ministry such as Samaritan's Purse.
We pray to ignite a spark in our school community that creates a movement of service throughout the year.
