What is ServeSTRONG?
ServeSTRONG is a summer “work camp” for middle school students designed to involve Prestoncrest’s teens in their community. Mornings and afternoons are spent serving at various organizations, which usually includes North Texas Food Bank, Christian Care Center, City Square, and others. Evenings are spent together doing fun activities and building relationships among the group. By serving their community and building relationships with each other, these students grow in their appreciation of their daily blessings while lighting a fire for acts of service in the world around them as they develop an appreciation for Christian community.
