Yearbook Orders

The early bird discount on yearbooks will expire at the end of January. At that point, the price of the yearbook will increase from $45 to $55 . Order yours before the end of January, and go buy yourself and a friend a cup of coffee with the $10 you save. To order, go to jostensyearbooks.com and search for GRACE Christian Raleigh.  

High School Service Opportunity

As a volunteer-based ministry, Crossroads Sports (a ministry of Shepherd's Church) relies on church members and parents to serve in the various capacities needed to operate our program. One of the roles needed for our game day is the position of Scorekeeper, and we would like to extend the opportunity for High School Students from GRACE Christian to acquire service hours through our program. Students can volunteer for as many hours as they would like. We’ll provide onsite training and can sign service hours forms upon completion of their responsibility. Here are a few information points:

Parents can contact David Spink, director, directly at [email protected]  or (919) 573-1563.

State of GRACE

We will be holding a State of GRACE meeting on Monday, January 9th at 6:30 p.m. at Hope Community Church. At this meeting, we will briefly discuss last year's Annual Report, share some 2022 academic highlights, as well as give you an update where we are in terms of our new property located on Veridea Parkway. We'll also share a bit more about a strategic planning initiative we have recently launched.
This is an adults-only meeting, so please go and secure a sitter ahead of time. We ask at least one parent from each family to make a point to attend State of GRACE.
