Service is in an integral part of the Christian Life program at King’s Ridge Christian School. We desire to help students fulfill the calling of and stewardship, as we love God and love one another. Students and families are provided opportunities throughout the year to serve others within their communities and throughout the greater Atlanta area.
Parents are encouraged to get involved in service events, providing leadership and guidance, as they model the importance of giving back to others.
In the Lower School, every class is responsible for performing at least one annual service project and most classes are involved in several. Opportunities for Middle School and Upper School students and their families are provided through the Christian Life Department, various co-curricular clubs (Key Club, Beta Club, Jr. Beta, National Honor Society) and athletic teams.
Upper School students have required service hour minimums of 10 hours each year (9th and 10th grade) and 20 hours each year (11th and 12th grade). Most students graduate with more than the 60-hour minimum of service hours. These students have learned and responded to Apostle Paul’s call to service ministry when he said, “Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” (1 Tim. 6:18)
