UFCA Serves

UFCA Serves Day

UFCA SERVES is a new initiative launching in 2020, that gives students the opportunity to learn how to serve others and give back to our community. On Wednesday, February 26, Middle and High School students served in the community while Lower and Preschool students served on campus at UFCA. This school-wide day of service is a great way to live out our school verse for the year,  “don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”  1 Timothy 4:12

Operation Christmas Child

Every year UFCA students collect items and assemble 300 boxes for OCC.  Buddy classes compete to bring in the most items.   The High School spends a day volunteering at the OCC Warehouse to pack up the boxes and ship them all over the world.

Samaritan's Feet Shoe Drive

UFCA partnered with Samaritan’s Feet throughout the month of February by collecting new athletic shoes. Buddy classes challenged each other to see who can bring in the most shoes! These shoes will be distributed all over the world to give hope to those in need.  Middle School served at Samaritans Feet on UFCA Serves Day.

A Day in the Life

Clubs

Art Club aims to beautify the school by painting murals, making sculptures, and framing photography that we have created together.  Often, we work on the set for the Fall and Spring theatre productions.  Students can also use this time to reflect and to work on personal artwork.  

Chess Club offers students the chance to learn the rules of the game,  hone their strategic skills, and learn to read their opponents. Middle and high school students meet to challenge each other and develop friendships each week.

Elementary Makerspace Club supports learning by using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math)hands-on activities. Makerspace uses everyday items to create such things as simple machines using K’Nex, a beach scene using Legos,  ramps or towers for a ball to travel on using Keva Planks, and their own sports cars out of pasta noodles!

High School Business & Marketing Club is designed to introduce students to the basic principles of Marketing and how they are applied in the Business World. Students will participate in practical application of Marketing principles and hear from business professionals from different industries. Students will participate in a Shark Tank competition with a prize for the most creative and realistic product or service presented.

Ukulele Club is the perfect way to end a busy school day! Strumming, singing little numbers, laughing and building finger calluses are always on the agenda!  Fifth graders through High Schoolers may bring their ukes and a smile, as we  pluck and sway away school stress on “the instrument that no one hates”!  Share songs you’ve learned! Learn to play as a group to keep the melodic, nimble sound of Hawaii alive.  All styles of music are explored and enjoyed.
