Last summer, Mountain started an initiative called “Dare To Love.” The goal was to outpace cases of COVID in Maryland with acts of love. God was in that, and in just a couple of months 70,000 acts of love happened and we surpassed the number of COVID cases!
Well, this Fall we are doing it again! Except this time the goal is a little different. We know that so many students, parents, teachers, and administrators face challenges this Fall with distance learning. So it’s time for the church to step up and be the blessing to support students and their education. So the challenge this Fall is to impact the estimated 50,000 students, educators, and homeschool families in our communities with an act of service. That’s right 50,000 acts of service between now and the end of the year! It’s called, Dare to Care!
Here’s how it works. Listed below are some important ACTS of service we can do that will make a difference. Let’s take the word A-C-T-S to intentionally serve those in our community.
A - Administrators
Principals, vice principals, counselors, central office staff
C - Caregivers
Childcare workers, moms, dads, grandparents, and those caring for kids
