You need heart, mind, and soul to change the world.

Ask anyone who knows Grand Rapids Christian Schools. They'll tell you that our schools' influence reaches far beyond the classroom. At Grand Rapids Christian Schools, we want students to not only learn, but to serve, with classes that are as spiritually rewarding as they are academically challenging. We're developing leaders: young people who openly share their faith and values.

Today's students are tomorrow's strength: entrepreneurs, doctors, teachers and pastors. At Grand Rapids Christian Schools we're preparing young people with skills, knowledge and values that will last a lifetime. We're preparing them to learn, to serve, to lead.

GRCHS Chapel Note - August 23, 2016
Prayer:  Teach us how to weep.  Teach us how to hope while we weep.  Teach us how to care while we hope.
Note:  "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?' And I said, 'Here am I. Send me!'"  Isaiah 6:9
God doesn’t call all of us to do the big things that might change the world, but  he does call all of us to  do the small things that can change someone’s world.
