Heart for Missions
Heart supports different missions around the world
Through different events during the year, our children learn the value of serving and missions as well as of prayerfully supporting those in the mission field.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. - James 1:27
We support local missions projects:
Each year our 8th Grade students select a ministry and design a way for our school to support it. One of the projects that we have supported school wide is Camp Alandale, a place of healing for abused children. Other recent ministry choices include Mercy Projects, serving children in need around the world, and locally Friendship Shelter serving homeless adults in Laguna Beach. Heart students and families have also partnered with Kids Around The World to package food purposed for the nourishment of impoverished children in Haiti.
Reaching the world with Operation Christmas Child!
Heart students have participated in Operation Christmas Child as part of our international outreach. In November, students bring in their shoe boxes filled with Christmas gifts for underprivileged children world wide. In the past, older grades have also volunteered at the local processing center, sorting and preparing boxes to be delivered around the world.
We reach out to the elderly:
God provided us with a perfect opportunity to serve the elderly.
Right next to our beautiful campus is a senior living facility, Del Obispo Terrace.
This class-organized ministry serves by making pictures and cards for the elderly and our older students visit and interview their elders for History and Writing projects. JK-3rd Grade students perform Christmas songs for them to rejoice in. We enjoy the interaction offered by these exchanges and delight in the growth fostered in both the lives of our neighbors and our students.
We enjoyed supporting the Friedberg family on their mission in Cambodia and find joy in knowing that our students make a difference in other people's lives.
Mercy Projects thanks Heart families for contributions helping children in Kosovo:
