Live To Give
was created as a way for Rockford Christian students to be involved in serving their community and the world through mission work, social activism, and donations. This program fits within the school’s mission statement: “The mission of Rockford Christian Schools is to challenge young people to know Christ as Lord, apply God's truth in all areas of life, love others sacrificially, and achieve the highest level of knowledge and skill in order to serve God and others.”
Community service tangibly connects the spiritual themes discussed in classes and chapel to application in the real world. High School students are required to complete a minimum of 20 service hours each year. In addition, many students serve through school clubs such as National Honor Society and Key Club. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Casual for a Cause days, which are donation drives throughout the year to support causes in our community and world. There are also schoolwide giving opportunities that both campuses participate in around the holiday season: the Matthew 25 Party for the Homeless and the Canned Food Drive for Salvation Army.
