Christian Life


We seek to provide an education based upon Biblical principles. It is our belief that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and that salvation is by faith alone in Jesus Christ who as God in the flesh, came to die, to be buried, and rise again for our sins. (John 3:16) It is our desire to provide the best Christian education and training for all children, for God is not a respecter of persons.

Our desire at Grace Christian School is to equip students to pursue spiritual maturity through a right understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ as presented in the inerrant Word of God. We believe that we are more sinful and flawed than we ever dared believe. BUT that IN CHRIST, we are more accepted and loved than we ever dared hope. Only as we wrap our minds and hearts around the promises of Scripture can we truly live in obedience to the commands of Scripture. So our aim is to help our students understand who they are IN CHRIST and how that shapes who they are in the world. 

It is also our desire to come alongside parents in what they are already doing to disciple and nurture the faith of their children. “Two combined influences are better than just two influences.” So, our aim is to keep parents informed as to what is being discussed in chapel and how they can follow up on those discussions at home. We will do that through weekly blog posts. We will also host parent seminars to encourage and equip parents. 

We want to impact students Christian lives so that they are equipped to impact the lives of other students. We will have lots of student leadership opportunities such as student worship teams, student testimonies, behind the scenes chapel planning and producing, class led chapels, etc. In many ways, students best reach students and we want to provide environments and opportunities for that to take place.

Chapel

Chapel is the most important weekly event here at Grace Christian.  Elementary students have chapel every Wednesday.  Students participate in singing and enjoy special speakers each week.  6-12 grade students meet for chapel twice per week (Tuesday ad Thursday morning).  Middle and high school chapel starts with student led praise and worship and segues into preaching by a teacher or the pastor.  Students are highly encouraged to sing, testify and even preach in chapel if led of the Lord.

Biblical Education

All classes at GCS are taught by Christian teachers who readily seek to integrate the Word of God into the Subject matter ant hand.  Students are encouraged to moral living by following the Word of God.  We believe in traditional education and seek to encourage patriotism and civic duty as well.
