Maranatha’s students mobilize for outreach every semester.
Many students are active in community service projects in the Watertown area. Recent student-led initiatives have included a cookout for city police and firemen, free youth basketball clinics and tournaments, a community carnival at an elementary school, and becoming “lunch buddies” through Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
Outreach isn’t limited to Watertown. Some students volunteer as tutors at Milwaukee Rescue Mission and at an area women’s shelter. Some students spend Friday nights distributing Christian literature and sharing the Gospel with others at Madison’s busy State Street shopping and restaurant district. Groups of students have established Bible studies at UW-Milwaukee and sang Christmas carols at UW-Madison residence halls.
Many students, of course, become active in outreach activities through the local churches where they serve.
