Each year, Christian Fellowship School sets aside the month of March as service project month. We have been conducting our Serve-a-thon month of service since 2006. It gives our students an opportunity to go out into the community and bless others. Each class plans their service project and sets up a time to serve. We have had a wide variety of projects throughout the years, and have been able to bless a number of folks through our Serve-a-thon. It is a time to focus our thoughts outward, and it is as much a blessing to our students as it is to the ones we serve.
