Our mission statement here at Fremont Christian School is “Glorifying God by Educating and Nurturing Students to Impact the World for Christ.” Educating our students goes beyond textbooks and exams, but expands to teaching our students to be aware of the world around them and how to be God’s light in that world. We strive to build a foundation of service in each of our students that they can take with them as they graduate to use to continue impacting the world for Christ. Jesus was the ultimate servant and He calls us to follow His example.
Below are some examples of how FCS staff and students annually serve our surrounding communities:
Volunteering at True North
To help stock TrueNorth's food pantry, every year our 3rd-8th grade students run a two-mile race and collect canned goods to subtract minutes off their finishing time. Younger students cheer on the staff and student runners and collect canned goods to earn extra recess/break time! This year our Fun Run is on October 19. All of the food goes to TrueNorth’s food pantry! 7th-grade students then deliver the collected food to TrueNorth and help stock the pantry. 7th and 8th-grade students also serve at TrueNorth’s food truck throughout the year, help set up for the annual Coats for Kids event, and help sort toys for Toys for Tots.

Community Leaf Raking
At the end of fall, staff and students serve the Fremont community by walking around town and raking leaves where needed. This is a yearly event at FCS and includes students of all ages working alongside each other, and often many parent volunteers as well, searching out those that could be blessed with a little extra help with their yard work.
Raising Money for Cancer Care Bags
The 8th-grade students sell popcorn twice a month to raise money for cancer care bags created for local cancer patients. These bags include water bottles, water flavor packets, hard candy, handmade blankets, hats, bandannas, and socks all placed in an FCS drawstring bag and delivered to Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial twice a year.
