Faith formation in the Grand Rapids Christian Schools (GRCS) is rooted in the premise that God loves us and calls us into relationship with Him. GRCS seeks to develop in students and staff a desire to be actively engaged in God’s Kingdom by being Christian disciples.
GRCS recognizes that the school is only one component of a faith formation process shared with the home and the church. While the home is the fundamental and most Biblical arena for faith formation, the Christian school bears an important responsibility in this process as well.
Forming faith can be described in a variety of ways – at GRCS we have found it helpful to discuss it in the context of how we Know God, Love God, and Serve God. This three-fold focus shapes how GRCS nurtures faith in academics, worship and service to God.
