Service to one another is an intentional part of the Mars Hill Academy ministry. Our Logic and Rhetoric students can be found escorting the youngest children to their cars at dismissal, serving them lunch, or assisting with youth drama and sports. Grammar students seek out opportunities to serve faculty and staff by volunteering in the office, setting up chairs, reading to Kindergartners, cleaning the building, or helping their teachers tidy the classroom at the end of the day. Ministry at Mars Hill is about loving our neighbors as ourselves and putting our faith into action daily.
- Community Service
- Student Service
- Parent Service
Each year, students, staff, and parent volunteers gather together for Highlander Heart, a school-wide meal packaging serve-a-thon. During our annual school beautification days, parents and students work side by side to prune bushes, spread mulch, paint, and do minor repairs.
The student-led Highlander Council focuses on building community through service to others. These students in grades 9-12 have a heart for ministry and lead meaningful projects throughout the year, including a Mitten Tree drive to collect winter accessories for local homeless families, a food drive for City Gospel Mission, caroling at a local retirement center, and volunteering for school events.
Parents are investing in the life of the school by serving in classrooms, sharing their creativity, praying for our students and staff, and lending a helping hand on the grounds, in the office, and on the court. The Mars Hill Parent-Teacher Fellowship exists to organize school volunteers, lovingly support our teachers, and nurture the parent community. Contact PTFChair@marshill.edu to get connected.
