Spencerville Adventist Academy Organizes Food for Families in Need
Story by Heidi Wetmore
Spencerville Adventist Academy (SAA) students and staff recently partnered with Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington (ACSGW) to organize and pack 50 boxes of food in preparation for distribution. There has been an increase of people in need, including a number of recent refugee families from Afghanistan.
“The students are excited to participate in service and plan to continue working with ACSGW throughout the school year,” says Tim Soper, campus chaplain.
The start of this service project coincided with SAA’s Week of Worship. Matthew Piersanti, youth pastor of the Spencerville church in Silver Spring, Md., shared messages with the students about the active and engaging love God has for us. “This, after all, is living out our tagline: Love to Learn, Live to Serve, All for Christ,” says Soper
