Christian Service Resources
A service project is
anything you do to help a person in need, a friend, neighbor or
family member that is not a part of your regular daily chores, and
that you don’t get paid for. Christian service hours should be
initiated by the Candidate and completed by the Candidate. When 15
hours are complete for each grade (9 & 10) a one – two page paper is
to be written on your discipleship when acting on your service.
Also, have the person that you helped write what your service was
(or you may write it) and have them sign and date the paper.
