SERVICE AND OUTREACH
Students at Grace Cascade Christian Schools are encouraged to live out their faith in service to others.
Each year all of our students are invited to participate in a Christmas Project, blessing those who are less fortunate than what we are generally accustomed to in our region. For the past five years, we have been able to bless our sister school, Colegio Cristiano El Padul located in Managua, Nicaragua, with Christmas gifts. In addition, students at Grace and Cascade donate monies throughout the year to The Nicaragua Connection in order to support 14 of their brothers and sisters in Christ who attend Colegio Christiano El Padul.
Middle school students have donated time to assist a local retirement home with landscaping projects, maintained a recycling program at the school, and served as school ambassadors to visiting guests.
At the high school, students have served in their community by volunteering at soup kitchens, adopting a Sparrow Child, working alongside Kohl’s employees on landscaping projects, maintaining Cascade’s own Restore the Bear creek restoration project, among other. Students are also encouraged to serve the Lord through short-term mission experiences via the school’s own Nicaragua Mission Trip or through their church. Students have participated in trips to the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Nicaragua.
“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will reward them for what they have done.”

Grace and Cascade has seen evidence of servant leadership played out by students going above and beyond what is asked of them. For example, Jillian Emard, a CCHS Class of 2015 graduate, felt a call on her heart to bless the students of El Padul in Managua, Nicaragua, with donations of gently-used soccer equipment while attending Cascade Christian her senior year.
