Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (ESV)
Plymouth Christian Academy is committed to excellent academics taught within a Biblical framework and service to others is an integral part of this philosophy. The command from the Bible is clear: “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” I Peter 4:10
On April 24-28, PCA will launch its 8th Annual Project SHINE Servathon (Serving Him in Neighborhoods Everywhere). Project SHINE is SO much more than a one-week event at PCA. The Christian character training that students receive is what sets PCA apart from other schools. Project SHINE instills in all of us a lifelong passion to serve others and share the hope of Jesus Christ. It is such an exciting time in the life of our school. Every teacher, staff member, and student will serve in some way to minister to those in need. From preschoolers to teens, our students will be actively showing the love of Jesus in tangible ways.
The following are samples of some organizations we’ll be serving this year:
Penrickton Center for Blind Children
Salvation Army, Plymouth
Waltonwood Senior Center
Bottomless Toy Chest
Starfish Family Services
John Dingell VA Hospital Detroit
ReStore Habitat for Humanity
Detroit Rescue Mission
Blessings Bags for Bolivia
Project SHINE functions similar to a typical “-thon” fundraiser. Students and staff members raise support for their service. However, unlike a typical walkathon where students get pledges in support of the number of laps they walk, with our Servathon, students carry out meaningful service that impacts both themselves and others. Project SHINE gifts help fund critical needs at PCA to support our mission of equipping our young people to impact their world for Christ.
God has already begun to bless this program through the many sponsorships that have already been received. SHINE sponsorships not only benefit PCA students, but also help us underwrite the materials we need for the service projects (fleece blanket material, pillow cases, cans of food, hygiene items, etc.). We are so grateful that God is using our school in this way to help spread the Gospel! Interested in donating to SHINE? Simply click HERE to donate online. Thank you so much for your support!
