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)
Each year, Plymouth Christian Academy students, staff, and parent volunteers embark on a weeklong Servathon, Project SHINE. Project SHINE serves several purposes for PCA. The most important purpose is to open the eyes of PCA students to the needs of others and then train them to step out and serve. At PCA, we strive to produce students who will lead lives dedicated to learning, leadership, and service. Project SHINE helps us fulfill this mission by educating our students about the needs in our community and around the world, and then having them perform age-appropriate service projects or volunteer work.
Project SHINE also serves as a fundraiser for PCA. It works like any other “athon”; friends and family support the participant’s day of service by making grateful for the outpouring of support the school receives through this project.
