Good Morning Covenant Families!

In this morning's assembly video, Mrs. Turner shares about how prayer is not virtual, but a gift we should use at all times.

How Deep The Father's Love for Us
Let's sing How Deep The Father's Love for Us together with Mr. Maurer.
How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom


Non Nobis
Our Grammar School students normally sing our school song,  Non Nobis  during morning assembly each day. We invite you to sing along with Mr. Maurer this morning!

Non nobis, Domine
non nobis, sed nomini tuo da gloriam

Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name be the glory.
– Psalm 115:1

Join the Pushup / Bible Memory Challenge

Day 5:  Because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel (Col 1:5) 
Join Dr. Sonju for a 14 day Pushup and Bible memory challenge to end the school year. Here are the details:

  • Do 14 pushups each day in honor of the 14 days of school remaining when this challenge was launched.
  • Memorize 14 verses of the Bible (Colossians 1:1-14) by May 21st. You can use any version, but Dr. Sonju will be using the ESV.
  • On the last day of school, send a video of you completing your last set of pushups and then reciting all of Colossians 1:1-14 to Dr. Sonju.
  • A drawing will be held out of everyone who completes the challenge to select 3 GS and 3 US prize winners.

Memorization Tips:

  • Write out the verses by hand on a 4x6 card, or you can print this pdf. Keep the notecard with you everywhere you go, and take it out frequently to practice your verse(s).
  • Focus on memorizing one new verse each day, and then reviewing the verses you've already memorized at the end of each day.
  • The passage has a definite flow, so you may find yourself easily memorizing more than one verse at a time. That is fine, but make sure you do lots of review of the section you've already memorized.
  • Try your best to learn it word for word – no mistakes.
  • Review last thing before you go to sleep and first thing when you wake up.
