Hope Week is an annual tradition at Bear Creek during which students actively practice wisdom, compassion, and courage in order to serve others in the broader community.
Hope Week 2021 marks the beginning of a new community partnership at Bear Creek with World Vision USA, and the funds raised during Hope Week will support the life-changing work they do all around the world.
This year students in Upper School and Middle School are specifically aiming to raise $2,500 to help fund the creation of a deep water well in an impoverished community.
You can support this goal by ordering a Hope Week T-shirt ($20 each) and/or giving a direct donation. A portion of each T-shirt sale ($10) will go towards World Vision.
Upper School and Middle School students can plan to participate in the following Matthew 25 Challenge during the week of February 1 – 5:
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat …” Challenge: Skip candy and desserts today and have rice and beans for dinner.
“… I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink …” Challenge: Drink water in lieu of other beverages. Every time you take a drink, pray: “God, please be with those without water today.”
“… I was a stranger and you invited me in …” Challenge: Sleep on the floor tonight.
“… I needed clothes and you clothed me …” Challenge: Wear the same clothes you wore yesterday.
“… I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Challenge: Write an encouraging note to someone who is going through a difficult time.
