Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
In light of the COVID-19 virus, students are encouraged to follow government and health department guidelines for virus containment. This revised assignment is designed to encourage students to think about and/or plan service in their community that can be performed at another time.
Section 1: Research service organizations in your community. (at least 1 page)
These should be organizations in the community that exist for purely social outreach, not a church that offers community service.
Section 2: Further research (at least 1 page)
Identify one option in your area that interests you and contact someone at that organization. Answer the following questions:
What kind of options are there for volunteers and how often are these available?
What kind of training does the organization provide or require?
How much does the organization depend on volunteer workers?
Is the organization in need of volunteers, donations of any sort, or anything else to provide their services?
Section 3: OT Connections (at least 1 page)
In light of this class material, how do you see the Old Testament advocating community-oriented service? This can relate to the type of service offered by the organization you researched or community service in general. Themes you might consider using include social justice in the prophets, community development in the fifth commandment, or care for creation in Genesis 1.
