“Let Us Lead by Serving Others”

Our theme verse this year is Romans 12:7-8.

“If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.”

The Bridgeway Christian Academy Chapter of the Jr. Beta club will include service projects and meetings to discuss leadership traits and skills that will enable our students to be successful not only in the classroom, but in life as well. Among the service projects for this year, we will conduct our annual food drive to collect non-perishable food items for families in the Greenville community. We will also be collecting toys to donate to the Salvation Army, and in the spring hope to participate once again in the Special Olympics program.

It is a new year, and we have been given a new direction. It is one in which service to others is not only a motto, but will be demonstrated in practical everyday ways in our school and the community around us. Let us lead by serving others.

Beta’s mission statement originated with Dr. John W. Harris, a professor at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, who founded the organization in 1934. Over 80 years have passed, but his vision and Beta’s mission has remained the same.

Between the Junior Beta Club (grades 4-8) and Senior Beta Club (grades 9-12), the organization has helped nearly seven million students learn how to make a life for themselves – and, since 1991, it has awarded over $5 million in scholarships.

There are now more than 450,000 active members and more than 8,750 clubs nationally and internationally. It has become the nation’s largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization.
