At Grace Brethren Schools we LOVE to sing, play our instruments and study God's word all in order to cultivate our relationship with God.
Each week the children participate in chapel. We make it age-appropriate and very child-friendly. The children will have a time of worship, singing familiar songs that typically involve hand motions or movements. Worship is then followed by a short story or lesson, reinforcing Biblical concepts and character development. Following the lesson is awards. Each week several students from each class will receive awards. The awards are for positive behavior as well as improved behavior. Chapels are led by the school staff as well as by pastors from Grace Brethren Church.
Chapel is one of the most exciting times on our campus. We gather together as a group every Wednesday. It is a dedicated time to sing worship songs and hear and learn from God’s word. Frequently we have special guests from the community like the Amani Childrens Choir, Children’s Hunger Fund, Operation Christmas Child, and local pastors who come and teach us what it means to live a Christ-centered life. Our kids also take part in leading chapel times by heading up our flag salutes, presenting the weekly Grace Manner, singing in the worship band or having our elementary choir perform.

The Spiritual Life on Grace Brethren’s campus is multi-faceted with both formal programs and informal student-teacher relationships. The programs we have created provide the structure and opportunities needed to develop discipleship relationships between faculty and students. If you visit our campus or talk to our students, you will frequently hear about the wonderful personal relationships that have developed with our staff. We believe these relationships are essential to the development of students and to the strength of our school.
Believing that participation in worship is essential to spiritual growth, we have made it a priority to set aside time every week for chapel. Worship is demonstrating worth to God through music, singing, sharing, and learning from the Word of God. We labor to have our worship conform to the principles laid out in John 4, namely that worship must be done in “spirit and truth.” We are committed to Christ-Centered applicable worship which encourages students to pursue Christ.
A student's life at Grace Brethren Junior/Senior High School is full of opportunity, engagement and growth. With over 400 students in six grade levels, there exists a myriad of opportunities for students to experience. The size of the student body provides a breadth of options in which students can participate and grow, while allowing staff to build into the lives of our students. It is our goals to offer activities which allow students to deepen their relationship with Christ while enjoying his blessings of fellowship and learning.
