Service Learning

Our BBS Service Learning Program involves both middle and high school students and attempts to accomplish three specific purposes:  1) To help our students learn to model Jesus who "came not to be served, but to serve" (Mark 10:45).  2) To "love our neighbor" (Matthew 22:36-40) by helping those in our community who need assistance.  3) To bring greater glory to God and shine as a "light" in the world (Matthew 5:16).  Most weeks, students have the opportunity to sign up for one of five or six different service opportunities.  Students will miss either their morning or afternoon classes on the day they go into the community to serve.  This year BBS is partnering with almost 20 organizations as well as individuals who need assistance.  Some of those organizations include Chattanooga Parks & Recreation, Chattanooga Area Food Bank, Room in the Inn, Chattanooga Audubon Society, Habitat for Humanity, Orange Grove Center. Flourish Foster Care Closet and Support, Chattanooga Rescue Mission, East Brainerd Church of Christ Snack Pack Ministry, GraceBridge "Father's Table" Ministry, and Widow's Harvest.
