Serve Burke

Our church has been grateful to share space with Burke High School, part of the Charleston County School District. Through this opportunity, we have developed many relationships with the people of Burke High School and the neighboring community in Charleston, and through those relationships, we want to provide ways for our people to serve others.

How to Serve

  1. Review serving opportunities, and consider how your gifts, experiences and interests can be used in serving the school.
  2. Register with the school district as a volunteer here.
  3. Express your interest to serve Burke by contacting us.
