National Day of Prayer

On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States.  President Ronald Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer.  This Thursday, May 3rd, is the National Day of Prayer for 2018, and Gramercy Christian School will be holding a flagpole prayer ceremony at 8:00 AM to pray for our country, our leaders, our communities, our families, and our school.  We are told in 2 Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, who are called by my Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." At Gramercy, we fervently believe that our God is a God who hears and answers the prayers of His people!    In addition, GCS  student representatives will be in downtown Newport from 12:00 pm until 1:00 pm at the Newport Park ...

Speaking of Good Dr's - Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

This morning at Gramercy in celebration of Dr. Seuss Day, our Kindergarten class presented our graduating Seniors with copies of Oh, the Places You'll Go!  It was so precious watching the bookends of our school sit together and read!  I have no doubt as graduation approaches, many of our Seniors' parents will be having vivid memories of their sons and daughters as they began school on that very first day.  Senior year, and especially graduation, is an emotional time for students and parents alike.  Although our sweet Kindergartners can hardly imagine being ready to graduate, our Seniors have the bittersweet gift of memory, and our prayer at GCS is that they will carry their memories of their time with us close to their hearts as they venture out into the world. More importantly, we pray they will carry the love of Jesus and the truth of God's Word and the reality of His Presence to all of the many places they may go.  Dr. Seuss's wish reads like this:  "You'll be on your way up ...
