Service Focus – Caring for the Homeless

Throughout the season of Epiphany, our focus has been on inspiring students to “Be the Light” and serve and love “the least of these.” In chapel on January 10, Denise Cortes, area director of Lutheran Social Services in Thousand Oaks, shared with students in chapel about the homeless situation in our community and how students can pray for and care for those individuals and families. As a follow-up service opportunity, students have been invited to arrive early to school for three consecutive Monday mornings to assemble lunches that are distributed to the homeless through LSS. It has been a joy to see over 20 students volunteer their time each Monday to brighten someone else’s day!
