Blog Picture for grace

This time of year always stirs in me a vast array of emotions. I find myself unable to fathom the amount of torture, pain, suffering, humility, disgrace and inhumane behavior that occurred leading up to the crucifixion and death of God’s perfect son, Jesus. Harder yet is to grasp that Jesus, sinless and perfect in every way, came to earth in human form to be that sacrifice and he did it to pay for all my sins.

John Zoerhoff Christian Service Day - GRCHS

Degage1 On March 3, the student body of Grand Rapids Christian High School went out and made a difference.  Their theme for the day was to live out I John 3:18 (NIV) where it says, "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth."

VIS coordinated the placement of the over 900 students and faculty at 44 community agencies throughout the Grand Rapids area to give the students an opportunity to serve and be the "hands and feet of Jesus."  They served at agencies such as Feeding America, Gilda's House, American Red Cross, Adams Park Apts., Rays of Hope, Kids Food Basket, John Knox Pantry, and many more.

God's amazing love showed through their actions and by their testimony of being out there and serving in His name.
