World Changer Week logo

March 11-15th was World Changer Week at Lancaster Mennonite School! Students of all levels participated in acts of service for our community throughout the week. 

Serving others is one of the ways we express our core values of Seeking Jesus Wholeheartedly and Living Compassionately.  Students completed various service projects throughout the community and on campus. It was exciting to see our students serving organizations that make a positive impact both locally and globally! 

Service Projects Included: 

  • Pre-K and Kindergarten: Elementary students in all grade levels collected coins for the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) program, ‘My Coins Count.’ Then PreK and Kindergarten students sorted and counted the coins so they could be taken to the PA Relief Sale for MCC.
  • 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th graders: Each grade spent time packing school kits for Mennonite Central Committee. 1st and 2nd graders were paired up with a High School Buddy in 11th grade and worked together to make the kits while 3rd and 5th graders packed them individually. Over 450 school kits were assembled and students prayed together for the children who would receive them!
  • 4th graders: Helped members of the Lancaster County Conservancy plant a pollinator garden and remove invasive plants on campus.
  • 6th graders: Worked with Troy Hurst, LM System Plant Manager, and Maintenance staff to do clean-up on campus
  • 7th and 9th graders: Went off campus to the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Material Resource Center. Students packed school kits, dignity kits, broke down books for recycling, and received tours to learn more about the work of MCC! 
  • 8th graders: Split up by homeroom and volunteered at either Blessings of Hope Food Bank or Woodcrest Retreat Center.
  • 10th graders:  Were split up by Advisory Groups and volunteered at either Eastern Mennonite Missions at Hub450 or Black Rock Retreat. 
  • 11th graders: Assembled MCC school kits with their 1st or 2nd grade buddies (above) during advisory groups.
  • 12th Graders: Earlier this year our senior students participated in Senior Service Day. This is a yearly tradition to help our students get hands-on service experience before they graduate.


In advance of the week of service, students in PreK-8th grade wrote letters inviting family and friends to give to Lancaster Mennonite in support of their participation for the day. We have raised $36,925! Thank you so much for your generous support!

Thank you for supporting our students and community, and for helping to make our World Changer Week a huge success! Enjoy the photos below of our students and faculty/staff serving together in the community.
