Student organization spotlight

Bluffton’s SERVE student organization is part of campus ministries and is based on Bluffton’s core value of service. We provide opportunities for students, staff and faculty to give back to their communities both on and off of campus. SERVE holds events including trash pick-up day, Christmas decorating at Maple Crest and volunteer opportunities at nursing homes. “Love your neighbors as yourself.”  Luke 10:27

SERVE will be travelling to Greenbrier, W.V., over spring break to serve with Mennonite Disaster Services (MDS) to do storm relief work for homes damaged during severe storms and flooding from 2016 that left many displaced. Holly Metzger, SERVE advisor, will be leading 14 students on the trip. We are excited to serve the residents of Greenbrier County not just by helping to repair homes, but to share the love and peace of Jesus Christ with the community there.

Contact Holly Metzger at, Brittany Howe at or the SERVE email for more information or to be added to the SERVE email list to be updated about upcoming events.

We are beavers all!
