Welcome Pastor Aaron and the Smith Family!!

Pastor Aaron has been meeting many of our students on campus and in Chapel. His instillation service took place on Sunday afternoon, November 3rd. We are so excited to finally have he and his family join us here at Grace, and are so excited to see God's continued plan for us unfold here!

Operation Christmas Child Season is Here!

For the 8th year in a row, Grace will be participating in the Operation Christmas Child ministry. We have the opportunity to serve Jesus by packing shoeboxes to be distributed worldwide to children in need. Each box will contain special Christmas gifts and most importantly the gift of hearing the gospel message of Jesus! Our campaign will begin on October 6th and all boxes will be due back no later than Sunday, November 25th.

Grace will again this year be a public OCC shoebox collection center for the box collection week of November 18th -25th. We need to form a volunteer team for that week!

The cost of shipping a shoebox is $9.

Please read the “How to pack a Shoebox” brochure found in your O.C.C. shoebox and available in the church. There is important information as to what to pack and what not pack in your shoebox. For more information and to volunteer contact Pastor Scott at psgary59@gmail.com or call Yoke in the church office at 760-745-0831.

Prayer List

We prayed for you!!

Every week at Grace Christian School a list of children and teachers are posted on Paw Prints (our all school Newsletter) to be prayed for that week. Once we've prayed for your child they will be given a bookmark to color. The front of that bookmark will say we've prayed for you, and the back will include a graphic to be colored that looks something like the one you see here. Just another way for all of us to support and love our Grace family!
