“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Each child is a unique a wonderful creation of God, ready and eager to grow in knowledge. What do you want that knowledge to be based on?
At GHC we offer an excellent education centered on God. The heart of Christ is evident in all we do at Grand Haven Christian. Our mission statement is lived out in all classes as our teachers and staff focus on shaping our students’ hearts for a deeper understanding of who God is, what He has done for us, and what our purpose is in His world.
- First and foremost, our students are taught that they are uniquely and wonderfully made as children of God, each blessed with different gifts and talents that they can share with each other.
- We celebrate the gift of salvation and living a life of thankfulness for this gift.
- Students are challenged in all academic areas to look at situations through our “Christian lenses”- seeing literature, scientific processes, historical and cultural events, and more as they are presented, but looking deeper to explore how a Christian should respond to such situations.
- Our students are given several opportunities to take action and serve in God’s world as well. From our very youngest in Preschool to our oldest in 8th grade, students learn to be God’s hands and feet as they serve in a variety of ways. We have long-standing relationships with organizations such as Kids’ Food Basket, Hand2Hand Ministries, International Aid, and Love in Action, as well as local senior care facilities. We train our students to see how they can serve in our community and strive to develop lifelong servant leaders in God’s world.
