Servanthood: A GPCS Core Value

One of our five core values at GPCS is servanthood: “We will follow the example set by Jesus Christ in how we serve others.” One way this servanthood is evidenced by GPCS students is by the various ways they contribute to the needs of others in the community. For example, our National Honor Society students collected over $1,075 this year in its annual “Pennies for Patients” drive for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Student Council members sponsored a school-wide food drive on behalf of the South Portland Food Cupboard. This organization serves the hungry by providing supplemental food to the needy of our surrounding communities.

For the past two years now, GPCS senior girls have helped to make a difference all over the world by purchasing their gowns for their High School Banquet through the Gowns4Good program. Gowns4Good funnels its proceeds into Food For The Hungry, an international relief and development organization with operations in more than 20 countries. It also helps fund USAID, the lead U.S. Government agency that works in over 100 countries to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential.

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve…” (Mark 10:45a)
