Logo for Grace Academy's Shaped for Service initiative

Grace Academy strongly believes in the value of service to others.  Not only because of what it teaches our students as individuals, but because God commands us to do it!  
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord" 1 Peter 4:10-11.

Among many other valuable Christian qualities, “Servant-hearted” is one that Grace Academy wants to be identified as the most.  Check out some of the service projects we are currently working on and have planned as the year progresses. Perhaps you will be inspired to join us as we intentionally expand the reach of the Gospel, spread the truth of Jesus Christ and show His love in action to the world.
