Amazing Grace

Celebrate GRACE Recap

Saturday evening's Celebrate GRACE was a huge success with members of the GRACE community getting together in small groups across the Triangle to hear more about the exciting things taking place at GRACE. If you were unable to attend one of the porch parties or tune in online, please check out the official Celebrate GRACE 2021 video to hear from some of our GRACE families about their love of our school, followed by a brief presentation by Eric Bradley on some exciting plans for the future. You can also watch a short video of our plans and renderings here.
Lastly, we ask that you prayerfully consider giving to the GRACE Annual Fund to allow us to continue to meet our important mission of equipping students to impact their world for Christ. You can even check to see if your company matches your donation here. (Scroll down until you see the "See if your employer will match your donation" box.) If you have any questions about the Annual Fund – including where funds have been used in the past and where we want to use this year’s donations – please view our attached wish list or Annual Fund FAQ page.
