CPC Missions and SERVice – THE VISION
The mission of Cedar Park Christian School is to transform the hearts and minds
of our students. There is perhaps no greater opportunity for accomplishing that
goal than through service. Whether At Home, Away or Abroad, when we serve
others, we become more like Christ, who came “not to be served, but to serve”
The one foundational reason that we go on
mission trips needs to be to serve our Lord and Savior. In making this our
priority, we see more clearly His enormous sacrifice for us, and the great need
for the lost to hear His message. When signing up for our trip we can easily
begin worrying about the wrong things: Am I with my friends? Is this location
more fun? Which trip is the most exotic? These questions are “me-centric” and
do not have Christ at the center. A better question to ask is: “How and where would
God like me serve?”
As you spend time praying about which team the
Lord wants you to join, please approach Him with humility. Ask Him to prepare
in advance all kinds of encounters with people during CPC Serve Week in order
to encourage the downhearted, show love to the unlovely, bring joy to the
broken, and shine light into the darkness. The school will do everything it can
to provide you the opportunity to serve with the love of Jesus is various ways.
The meaningfulness of this experience, however, will greatly depend on your
attitude and willingness to approach it prayerfully, positively and with
personal availability to the work of the Holy Spirit’s leading.
“For Christ’s love
compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all
And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for
themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again."
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Students select their mission trip by
submitting their application to Ms. Boyd. When assigning trips, priority is
given to students in order of grade seniority and the date the student signed
who are dating may not sign up for the same team.
We pray diligently about who will be placed on each team, and ask that you also
pray for God’s guidance in forming our mission teams. The Administrative and
Campus Ministry Teams of Cedar Park will make the final decision in mission
trip placement for each student.
