One of our core values at Hartfield is service. We believe service follows the example of Jesus Christ and is the key to greatness. We strive to emulate Christ by serving others ahead of self. In the fall, we do a series on missions and service during Awakening. At that time, we introduce what Arise Week is so that the students can begin to pray about where they can serve in the spring. Arise Week takes place the few days before Spring Break, and every 9th-12th grade student serves either at a local ministry or on a global trip.
Last year, we had 5 local ministries that our students served. We also had 4 different global trips they could choose from, with 3 of those options being mission trips. For our middle school students, we have an Arise Day for each grade in April where we serve a local ministry together.
