As Christians, we are called to have an outward focus, to have eyes for the needs of our neighbours, and to serve others. Jesus both calls us to serve and is our perfect example self-giving love.
Developing a mindset of service may open your eyes to the struggles of fellow students, your co-workers, or the needs of a recently-immigrated family in your community. You might find yourself leading a discussion in a prison, colouring with a young girl at the Mustard Seed, or digging ditches in Honduras. Our world is in need of caring individuals who see with the eyes of our Servant King, Jesus Christ.
The King’s Hands
The King's Hands is an outreach group where students find various ways of serving the community with a humble and Christ-like spirit. This group provides meals for our inner-city families through the Mustard Seed ministry, as well as sharing God's love through blood drives, clothing drives, and hospital visits.
One Sunday a month, a group from King’s leads worship and a Bible study at the Edmonton Young Offenders Centre. The EYOC is also looking for people to lead a Bible study on Tuesday nights. If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, contact Tim Wood, Campus Pastor.
Micah Action & Awareness Student Society (MASS)
The goal of the MASS movement is to promote action and change regarding social injustice on both a local and global level. We hope to advocate for radical change and to mobilize students to take action for a broken world. Look for this group at the clubs fair at the beginning of each semester.
Worship on campus
Get involved with planning and running worship services on campus. Serving on a worship team or the worship formation team are a few ways to get involved.
Learn about international service opportunities such as the Honduras Water Project. The Micah Centre also offers many local opportunities to serve.
