The umbrella that covers all missions and outreach activities conducted here at Temple Christian College, Mission Possible nurtures and encourages the school community to actively engage with the wider community–locally, nationally and internationally through a focused program of fundraising and Mission support.
In addition to giving our staff and students the opportunity to participate in Mission Trips, Temple Christian College also has a very strong desire to financially support a number of community outreaches and charitable projects. Through active fund raising and giving, we have been able to raise over $58,400 in funds as a school community (Mile End & Paralowie, 2017) for community outreach projects such as:
Papua New Guinea
Sunrise Bethel Christian School, Port Moresby is one of our sister schools and plays a key part in our Fundraising and Missions focus.
The Temple Christian Community supports a number of projects in Cambodia and has developed significant relationships with Destiny Rescue – Justice Home, Cambodia Care Centre and School – Deum Sleng slum and A Greater Hope Orphanage.
World Vision – 40 Hour Famine
The 40 Hour Famine is one of Australia’s largest youth fundraising events. Temple Christian College has developed a strong tradition of supporting this event during the school week with students and staff encouraged and supported to participate in the Famine and raising funds for children living in poverty. Each year a team of students is selected to represent Temple at the annual World Vision – Global Leaders Conference at the Entertainment Centre.
Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child
Each year, every Care Group within the school gathers, supplies and packs shoe boxes to be given out to children living in remote regions of Australia and overseas in the period leading up to Christmas.
Students wishing to extend their level of service to the community have a great opportunity to participate in a number of outreach teams including:
The Worship Team comprises of a dedicated and highly committed group of students that lead the school in Assembly Worship every week. Playing a pivotal role in the life of the school, this team includes onstage musicians, singers and technical support crew (operating audio & visual). Students from all year levels are able to be involved and are often looked upon as leaders and mentors to other students.
Being a member of the Worship Band is seen as a significant service unto God and to the School Community. As ambassadors of Christ, students within the Worship Band are seen an active role model of leadership to other students.
Easter in the Mall Event
Through dance, drama and music students from our Performing Arts Faculty have the opportunity to partner with a number of other Christian Schools to perform publicly in the Rundle Mall, Adelaide City in the lead up to Easter.
