SERVING TO GROW. GROWING TO LEAD.
“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” – Hebrews 13:16
Learning to serve and give back to the community is an important part of a well-rounded Christian education. Students at WCS participate and lead community service projects with over 20 organizations throughout the year. Weatherford Christian School has also teamed up with Gilbert Christian School in Haiti that they support both spiritually and financially to help spread Kingdom education globally.

WEATHERFORD CHRISTIAN SCHOOL'S ANNUAL DAY OF SERVICE
Each year Weatherford Christian School hosts an annual Day of Service, where each class comes together to give back to the Weatherford community and surrounding towns through service & prayer. Students, teachers, staff, and parents cover the town of Weatherford by serving and praying over many local businesses, non-profits, schools and churches.
This year, the high school students visited 65 local businesses, churches, and first responders, to thank them for their service to our community and for the many blessings they have poured over the Weatherford community this past year. The middle school students visited local nursing homes where they spent time with the residents painting nails, playing games and doing crafts. The fifth grade students collected cake mix and frosting for the Christmas baskets at Center of Hope and delivered them to the center brining their total number of pounds of food donated since the beginning of the year to 1,500.
The fourth grade students shopped for Operation Christmas Child to fill their boxes, then proceeded to Northside Baptist Church to pack and deliver to their 22 boxes. The third grade students participated in packing bags to send home to students that may be food insecure without school breakfast and lunch being provided over the holidays. The younger grades PK-2nd participated in activities such as making homemade snacks to deliver to local businesses around their elementary campus, food collection for the Center of Hope and making cards for 1st responders and victims of violence.
Though WCS students participate in weekly mission projects, Day of Service gives them the opportunity to serve together as a school familly. Giving back to those less fortunate, or saying thank you to those who serve our community, are lessons that begin to mold a servant’s heart at a young age. WCS believes that by giving their students the opportunity to serve their community that it will plant the seed that may one day lead them to take charge and give back to their own communities in an impactful way.
