Community Service Projects
North Rome Christian School is committed to teaching students the importance of giving back to their community through the service of hearts and hands. NRCS has established the Community Service Projects which connects our students to opportunistic needs within our community. Each class decides on two community projects, then completes those tasks in order to begin putting feet to their faith through action. The impact they can have on their communities with simple acts of kindness, care, and concern through service is gratifying. Once each fall and spring the students leave the school to bless other organizations and individuals. It is our sincere prayer that seeing the joy that they bring others will instill in our students a life-long love to serve and care for others as the body of Christ.
Our Students have brought happiness and smiles to residents at senior care facilities, helped area churches with outside projects, sewn pillowcases for children in hospitals, made meals for those in need, collected donations of hats and coats for the area shelter, worked at Stoney Point, a local Christian camp, reached out with cards and cookies to our area businesses, helped at the museum honoring P.P. Bliss, and many other projects.
NRCS is nurturing the next generation of Kingdom Builders.
To honor veterans and educate students about their service and sacrifice, we host a Veteran’s day program each year. All veterans are invited to the whole school program. One or two military veterans address our students, faculty, staff, and guests from the community. A reception for our honored guests is held following the program. Students in various classes offer songs, poems, and essays reflecting their appreciation for the service that the men and women have given on behalf of our many freedoms.
Kindergarten Preview Day
North Rome Christian School invites any parents interested in enrolling their children into Kindergarten the upcoming year, to attend the Kindergarten Preview Day. This event is held on the Tuesday following President’s Day every year. The children have a “mini-day” experience with the Kindergarten teacher, while the parents meet with the administrative team to learn more about NRCS, the curriculum, and school readiness. If interested in the event, please call the office at 570-247-2800.
Each year the senior class is required to do some form of service project as part of their senior curriculum. The project involves approximately 20 hours. The students are encouraged to pray for direction, find an organization or cause that they have a passion for serving, and organize the project, and present it in full detail. In the past, students have held blood drives in memory of a loved one, raised funds for wells, food, and other needs for those in other countries, held an Olympic ‘track and field’ day for the disabled, worked with various organizations for our veterans, sponsored the first 5K races for the school, and many other assignments. The blessing of this program is to see young people stepping out of their comfort zone to serve others and be touched in return.
