Good Morning Covenant Families!

Mr. Hayward continues to discuss Matthew 6 and Jesus' fourth argument against anxiety.

Be Thou My Vision
Let's sing Be Thou My Vision together with Mr. Maurer.
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that thou art--
thou my best thought by day or by night,
waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
thou my great Father, I thy true son;
thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

Be thou my battle shield, sword for my fight;
be thou my dignity, thou my delight,
thou my soul's shelter, thou my high tow'r:
raise thou me heav'n-ward, O Pow'r of my pow'r.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
thou mine inheritance, now and always:
thou and thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my treasure thou art.

High King of heaven, my victory won,
may I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'n's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

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
Senior Recognition | Brett Montefour
Brett has attended Covenant since 4th grade. He has loved all the memories and experiences gained over the past 9 years and would not trade them for anything. He has been a part of school life and fellowship in many ways, participating in student government, choir, basketball, moot court, drama productions, and soccer. He would like to thank all the teachers and coaches who helped him over the years, especially: Mrs. Wolcott, whom he credits with helping him through some critical times in his math education; Mr. Suthers, who made every class an enjoyable adventure; Dr. Armetta, who helped him develop his writing; Ms. Munson, who gave him a great appreciation for 20th century history; and Mrs. Swartz, who set a great foundation of handwriting and a love for learning back in 4th grade. He would also like to thank his family, and especially his mother and father, who have always done what is best for him throughout his schooling career, even when he didn’t want to push through the challenging times. In the fall Brett will be attending Penn State University, main campus, to major in Cyber Security and Analytics with a focus on Geopolitics and a minor in 20th Century War and Economics. He will also be pursuing a career in the US Army through Penn State’s ROTC program.

Join the Pushup / Bible Memory Challenge

Day 3:  We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you. (Col 1:3) 
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.
