Community Service Opportunities
CVCS Student Community Service Opportunities
Our prayer is that as you serve, you are the hands and feet of Jesus extended to those around you. If you have questions, contact your Bible teacher.
- Students in grades 9-12: complete 10 hours of community service per semester.
- Students in grades 7-8: complete 5 hours of community service per semester.
- National Honor Society (NHS) students – complete 15 hours of community service per semester
We would like students to serve outside CVCS, but it is up to the individual Bible teacher if they will allow CVCS service hours to count. These hours should go to benefiting others rather than ourselves (tangibly). Students need to report service hours to their Bible teachers either electronically through Teams or handwritten by filling out this form.
"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve others and give his life as a ransom for many." Mark 10:45

The Idaho Foodbank 3630 E. Commercial Ct. Meridian, ID 83642
The Meridian Food Bank sponsors a backpack food program for the West Ada School District. Many students who receive reduced-price or free lunches come from situations where food is scarce, and they need extra food assistance. Our program gives qualifying students a backpack each Friday filled with enough food for six meals and two snacks to ensure that they have food to eat over the weekend.
We volunteer once a month right after school for an hour - 3:20pm-4:30pm.

QUILTS OF COMFORT
Do you like to make fleece blankets (or quilts, afghans or other blankets)? If so, you can use the hours it takes to make a blanket and apply the hours toward your community service hours while blessing a family at the same time!
What is Quilts of Comfort?
Quilts of Comfort is a program at Boise and Nampa’s Saint Alphonsus Hospitals that provides blankets to families who suddenly find themselves at the hospital bedside of a loved one, unprepared to spend the night. Blankets are also given to patients who need a little extra comfort in their medical situation.
How does Quilts of Comfort work?
Individuals make blankets and Quilts, afghans or blankets. They can be dropped off at Saint Alphonsus Volunteer Services (Boise or Nampa) or they can be dropped off at Cole Community Church (Elementary Campus). A note expressing comfort is attached to the blanket and they are then placed in a plastic bag and tied with a ribbon to be presented as a gift to the recipient.
