CGS will Proclaim, Welcome, & Serve in Education
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4: 10
Using our gifts of time and money to educate the people of CGS, both young and old, gives us the tools to fulfill our mission to proclaim, welcome, and serve. In our civic lives, we commit vast resources to the education of our citizens. Shouldn’t we do the same in our Christian lives? We may forget the details of Bible stories we learn in our youth, but the message of God’s love and mercy stays with us.
Education provides a path to understanding, compassion, empathy, love and wonder. It teaches us to love our neighbor and ourselves. It shapes our outlook on our lives and compels us to serve the world. To give others knowledge is to give them them the ability to contribute.
