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.”
~ Proverbs 19:17 ~

Cascade!!!! YOU ROCK!! Awesome kids! ~ Esther Dies (Facebook)

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.

Dear Grace Christian Family and Kathy Rouse (Heritage tour coordinator), It was wonderful to see all of you and share my experience at the Naval Academy with such a bright group of (8th grade) students... Thank you for the guiding light you all have been and the moral foundation you instilled in me at a young age...You all are amazing and without wonderful role models and teachers like you the world would be a much darker place. Keep shining for the Lord!

As we passed an ambulance on our way to school this morning I found out that when the kids hear one going by the school they stop class to say a prayer for the person in need. Just one more thing that I LOVE about our school.

(Our daughter) enjoyed her visit very much...the atmosphere is much more laid back and friendly than (her other) high school. The Honors English teacher made a lovely impression on her and so did the cafe lunch...One of the other things that made a big impression on her was the fact that students were openly talking about church and which ones they attend.

Cascade has built who I am today. My life can be divided into pre-Cascade and post-Cascade periods. Cascade is where you can find your true spiritual identity with the Lord.

I am deeply thankful to have grown up at Grace Christian School. Looking back, I realize more and more how blessed I am to have attended. Now 28 years old, I am teaching English in (the Middle East). So many projects and activities, the impressions my fruitful and faithful teachers had on me, continue to inspire me today. Thank you Grace! Praise the Lord :)!
