The Summit Christian Academy Class of 2022 spent the final days of their summer vacation away from home and serving on the senior mission trip.
SCA students left Lee’s Summit to serve in the Appalachian region of Southeastern Ohio. This was the 18th year SCA has sent the senior class out to serve on a mission trip. As seniors prepare to go beyond the campus of SCA after graduation, the SCA senior mission trip is an opportunity to build class leadership, unity, spiritual and personal leadership, and help a community in need.
Partnering with the Praying Pelican Missions, SCA seniors served several local organizations including Salvation Army, a community center, a soup kitchen, a clothing drive, a youth program, and Morgan County Fairgrounds. Students did manual work including painting, landscaping, and organizing and also built relationships with children, families, and leaders in the community.
“I was so impressed by watching the seniors that went on the mission trip as they were the hands and feet of Christ to so many,” shared SCA Secondary Principal Joe Hesman. “They cleaned up buildings, went through clothes, ministered to kids, served and ate with the homeless, prayed over the community, and more. Tasks small and great were done with the love of Christ and they were being living examples of God’s Word in 1 Peter! I know our seniors made a positive impact in Ohio.”
