JUNIOR HIGH
I-Term week

Our junior high students will be working on various projects throughout the community

2015 DOMESTIC/INTERNATIONAL TRIPS

Students will partner with several churches in Greater Buenos Aires, as well as YWAM Argentina and Conviven, which both have their headquarters in the capital itself. In addition to serving with community outreach and practical service projects, this trip will include experiencing the rich and distinct culture that Argentina has to offer. This is a great opportunity for Spanish students to take their language skills out of the classroom.


Students will participate in service with YWAM ministries, experience the rainforest, and see first hand the beauty of our world’s most incredible rain forests.

Students will be stretched in their walk with God to love the unlovable, to step out of their comfort zones, and to listen to God’s call as they minister to the suffering. Outreach to homeless on skid row, delivering food to needy families, and working with foster kids will be the focus on this trip.
Students will experience Hawaiian culture while serving at Surf the Nations, a program that allows homeless teens the opportunity to learn how to surf. They will also work at the Humane Society, and at US Vets. CCS kids will also visit the Polynesian Cultural Center and Pearl Harbor.
Students will do community outreach with the Las Vegas Dream Center. Construction projects, cleaning, feeding the homeless, children’s ministry and adult worship services are just some of the things experienced during this amazing week in Vegas

Students will continue the process of rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina. Even 9 years later there is much to do. Building projects and community outreach is the focus on this trip, while enjoying the hospitality of one of our nations great cities.

Omak
This I term opportunity will take place at “The Father’s Ranch” Omak WA.  The ranch is an organization that works with women and teenage girls who are wounded and hurting, and are in the process of healing after confronting some of life’s most difficult situations.  The plan is to join in God’s work at the ranch during I Term week, and lend a helping hand wherever they can.  It is sure to be an eye-opening and life-changing experience, and anyone who has a heart for coming alongside the hurting in their journey toward healing is welcome.  See the website for more details about the ranch.
