The I-Serve Social took place on Tuesday in the MC Little Theater. Students participated in get-to-know-you activities and met the coordinators for upcoming service opportunities.

During the event, students learned more about the coordinators, how to volunteer and potential service events by participating in a Quizizz game.

The goal of I-Serve is to serve others with love, develop lasting friendships and make a difference, big or small.

“I just love serving; when you serve you feel the spirit and like, just when you love others, you’re loving yourself,” said Ori Bliss, a volunteer for I-Serve studying communication. “My job is to serve … it really helps me feel like I get lessons from God.”

I-Serve coordinators organize various, daily activities each week.

They offer service opportunities such as exploring family history, delivering food, donating blood, visiting animal shelters, assisting in after-school programs, volunteering as a mobility assistant and more.

“I’ve just found that when I serve other people, my problems don’t go away, but I am more able to handle them,” said Rachel Weiss, the director of I-Serve. “And I think I-Serve is important mainly just because it allows us to have an experience with Jesus Christ. And that changes everything.”
