Spiritual Emphasis Week

Spiritual Emphasis Week is a week-long exercise in spiritual growth.  It is our prayer that during these five days, the staff and students of JCS will build community, connect with our Lord and each other, grow in relationship with our Lord and each other, and deepen our faith commitment.

During this week, one day is devoted to service work in the community.  The entire student body travels to more than 20 sites including nursing homes, thrift stores, day care centers, community gardens and other agencies.  Students are encouraged to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community.
