Good Morning Covenant Families!

Welcome to the second to last Monday of our school year. We hope that you had a wonderful weekend full of rest, play, and worship – and that you found a meaningful way to celebrate your mothers. In this morning's video, Dr. Sonju discusses Proverbs 11:28 and invites you to consider what your heart is trusting in. Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.

For the Beauty of the Earth
Let's sing For the Beauty of the Earth together with Mr. Maurer.
For the beauty of the earth,
for the glory of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies,

Refrain: 
Lord of all, to thee we raise
this, our hymn of grateful praise.

For the beauty of each hour
of the day and of the night,
hill and vale, and tree and flowe'r, 
sun and moon and stars of light,  [Refrain]

For the joy of ear and eye,
for the heart and mind's delight,
for the mystic harmony
linking sense to sound and sight,

For the joy of human love,
brother, sister, parent, child,
friends on earth and friends above,
for all gentle thoughts and mild,  [Refrain] 

For each perfect gift of thine
to our race so freely giv'n,
graces human and divine,
flow'rs on earth and buds of heav'n,  [Refrain]



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 6:  Which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth (Col 1:6) 
Haven't started yet? It's not too late. Start today. Watch today's video to learn more.
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.
