Service Project 2013

This years' Service Project will benefit the Pastor Training International.

It is time to once again begin to think about our annual Service Project.  This is our twenty-fifth school sponsored opportunity for the students to earn some money for the specific purpose of giving to the needs of others.  This year we have chosen an organization called Pastor Training International. The purpose of this UK based organization is to provide pastoral training and materials to some of the world’s poorest pastors. Many of these men pastor churches on the continent of Africa. We learned of this effort this past spring when one of our missionaries visited Carlisle and told us of his opportunity to teach some of these men. David Vaughn, ARBCA church planter in France, reported,

“I have gone the last two years to train a group of 170 pastors in one denomination in Burkina Faso.  We meet in a little village with no electricity, no running water, and no toilets.  Some of these men told us that their monthly salary as pastor was $5.  Virtually all of them with a couple exceptions have to raise crops or have cows or goats in order to make enough money to live.”

Currently it costs $24.15 for one of these pastors to travel and receive a week’s worth of theological and pastoral training. I believe that it would be a reasonable goal for us to collect and send enough money to give twenty-five of the world’s poorest pastors a week’s worth of this valuable training. So please talk with your students and plan to help them find a way to earn a little something to donate toward our goal of $600 for this organization.

Local Mission:

Once again this year, we will collect canned and boxed food items.  The items will be added to the holiday food baskets that Grace Baptist Church Youth Group distributes to the residents of James Wilson Safe Harbor. 

Please use this opportunity to teach your children about the blessing and obedience of giving to those in need.  Send money to the school office in envelopes designated “Service Project.”  Please place food items in the kitchen.

ACSI 2013 Fine Arts Competition Results


 On Monday, April 29, 2013, forty middle school students from The Christian School of Grace Baptist Church travelled to Lancaster, PA to participate in the ACSI Middle School Fine Arts Festival. Groups and individual students were adjudicated in vocal, instrumental, and visual art categories. Over 1100 students from forty Middle Atlantic Christian school participated.

 The Christian School of Grace Baptist Church is pleased to announce the following results. The small vocal ensemble called The Grace Notes, under the direction of Mrs. Carol Garman, received the highest score in their group. Additionally, they were one of three performances chosen to present at the awards program. Also, Seventh grade student Nicholas Douglas of Carlisle earned the designation of Superior for his vocal solo entitled “There Is A Higher Throne.”

The opportunity to present at ACSI marks the end of many months of practice and preparation by the students. Among others recognized for excellence in their musical presentations were Erik Praestgaard, piano; Alyssa Endres, vocal solo, and Nathan Harding, guitar. The school choir and Boys’ Ensemble also earned a score of Excellent for their performances.
