Every ministry has the need for certain jobs to be completed. Your church or workplace employs a janitor, an office manager, security, grounds keeping, and various other service oriented professionals. To keep the cost of co-op affordable, each family is responsible for completing service hours. There are a variety of ways you can complete these hours and you will be contacted by teachers and coordinators to help you complete them on one of their teams or in the classroom.
Families record their hours each week and then turn in their service hours worksheet the last Thursday of each month. This worksheet is attached at the bottom of this page for your convenience. Keep service hours in mind when you sign up for classes.
MANY opportunities exist to complete service hours, please contact us if you are having trouble meeting your hours. If it is preferable, we can even connect you with service hours away that can be completed from home.
There are instances where service hours may be forgiven/donated to another member. In the past we have forgiven service hours when a life threatening illness affected a family at co-op, when a member family lost a loved one or when a family had a new baby. Please communicate your needs to our secretary, we are here to help.
If your family would rather not complete and record service hours, you also have the option to ‘purchase’ your service hours at a rate of $10 per hour due. Please let us know if you prefer this option as these are billed at the beginning of the semester.
