6th Graders Get A Taste of Ecuador

September 30, 2015
By Sonya Kerr



Mrs. Kerr's 6th grade class had a culminating event after finishing the book Nate Saint: On a Wing and a Prayer.  The book is about five missionaries that were killed by the Waorani Indians when they were trying to share the gospel with them.

The 6th graders had the opportunity to experience some of the tastes from Ecuador; a sweet pudding drink called "Morocho", plantain chips, and an Ecuadorian soup.  The reactions were positive..."I could live in Ecuador, I love their food"!

The students compared and contrasted Ecuadorian foods with our foods in the U.S. on a Venn Diagram.

CCS Parking Lot Update

August 27, 2015
By Covenant Christian School

If you have been curious about all the activity going on in our parking lot at CCS, here is a synopsis of the changes being made:

The parking lot is being expanded with a new limestone base.  This expansion will be adding an additional 16,000 sq ft of parking, along with over 70 new bump stops.  A new entry has also been created, so it will have a circular flow for better traffic movement.  The new base will be installed so it can be paved in the future.  Repairs on the student parking lot are also being made.  

Other upcoming improvements will include new striping for the roadways and teachers parking lot.  The fire lanes and crosswalk will also be refreshed with new paint.

It's exciting to see these updates being made!  If you have questions or would like further information on supporting our campus improvement projects, please contact Robert Ream at  Thank you!

Covenant and Unity in the Body of Christ

August 18, 2015
By Shannon Fox

Today six 2015 graduates of CCS will invade the Abilene Christian Campus.  As I was praying for these six this summer, I realized that they are from 5 different churches and denominations.  At that moment the Holy Spirit infused me with enthusiasm for what this group will accomplish on the ACU campus.  What a beautiful expression of unity in the Body of Christ-a ideal fostered in our interdenominational school.   As one of their senior Bible teachers, I have witnessed these students praying for and encouraging one another.  I have watched them minister to older people in a nursing home and observed them loving on underclassmen.  Join me in praying for all of our college freshmen as they begin great new adventures.  Praying the 2015 graduates will allow the Holy Spirit to move mightily through them, praying for boldness, and for a growing passion for God and others!

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

John 17:20-23
