Grand Rapids Christian High School Winterim
VIS was proud to partner with Grand Rapids Christian High School in placing students at many agencies throughout Grand Rapids in providing learning opportunities through their Winterim classes. “Winterim engages students in a two-week learning experience, allowing them to choose their own courses of interest. Concentrated exposure and immersion in a chosen field provides an uncommon learning opportunity whereby students gain valuable tools to foster their true gifts, leading them to be effective servants of Christ in contemporary society.”
Students were placed at agencies such as The Image, Blandford Nature Center, Gilda’s Club, Breton Village Green, Kids Food Basket, Degage, YMCA, Mt. Mercy, Leonard Terrace, among others. One of the classes we worked with was “What’s Love Got to Do With It? Serving the Vulnerable in Grand Rapids,” and their goal was to serve and love the most vulnerable in Grand Rapids by being a light of Christ in the community. Their love was evident as they cleaned, painted, organized and spent time with hurting, lonely individuals in many areas of our city.
Thanks, Grand Rapids Christian High students!
