"Impacting our community" and "Impacting the world" are not just nice sounding slogans at Living Word Christian School. They are ideals we live by. Mission trips and community service opportunities have long been encouraged as part of our vibrant school life.
In 2012, a 80 member team of students, faculty, staff, and parents from CHS served in Joplin. Click here for video and more.
In 2013, a different kind of mission trip was undertaken by about 80 CHS students, faculty and staff members, and parents for Spring Break, March 8- 12th. Our trip was local. We stayed at a church in St. Louis and worked in the city at various churches doing demolition, cleanup, maintenance, landscaping, etc., as well as building relationships within the neighborhood. It was a terrific opportunity to help close to home.
In 2014, the CMS mission trip collaborated with Praying Pelican, a mission organization, and traveled to Chicago and impacted an urban community.
In 2015, a team of students, faculty, staff, and parents headed south to Memphis to serve with Praying Pelican. Click here for more detail.
