RGC Front

“We are very excited to have the plans finished for the Robert R. Gustafson Center.  The center will be home to a new gymnasium, 12 classrooms, and two lecture auditoriums.  The center will also have locker rooms, concessions, and administrative offices.  The facility will increase our student capacity and expand our ability to provide new programs in sports for students of all grades.  By adding a second gymnasium, we will be able to engage the elementary students in exciting interscholastic leagues, provide a greater capacity for all of our teams, and be the new home of the GCS Patriots varsity sports.  The building will be named in honor of our founder Dr. Robert Gustafson, who was the visionary of this great school ministry.  I, myself, came to know the Lord through the ministry of Grace Christian School.  I am so thankful for what GCS has meant to this community for more than forty years.  Would you please consider a special gift to the completion of this building?  We thank you in advance for your participation.  I know that the Lord will bless your gift towards this cause.” 
– Barry McKeen, Pastor/Administrator.

So, what does 19 mean???

That was our Founder Pastor Gustafson's baseball number when he coached for Grace Christian School. His heart for Christian Education and his over 40 years of faithfulness at Grace Community Church and Grace Christian School is why we are naming the Dr. Robert R. Gustafson Center after him. Here are a few ways you can also help.

Robert R. Gustafson Center Memorial Sidewalk

"Leave a Legacy" Bricks

As part of the New Robert R. Gustafson Center, we invite you to "Leave a Legacy" by purchasing a memorial brick that will be custom engraved and installed in the sidewalk leading to the new facility. This will be an ongoing project with multiple phases, and as more bricks are sold, additional pathways will be created using these unique bricks. 4" x 8" Red engraved concrete bricks can be customized with a variety of logos and messages. 

Proceeds from this project will be used for the Robert R. Gustafson Building Project.
