Covenant Christian School Blog
Last week in Mrs. Scheler's 4th grade class they were sharing prayer requests and one student, Hayden mentioned knowing someone who recently had their home destroyed by a fire.
Mrs. Scheler took that opportunity to mention that she might have some things to donate to the individual. This spurred on another student, Ali who asked if they could gather items as a class to help this family in need. Ali herself brought in books, a sweet note and bag of items to donate to this family.
Mrs. Scheler was so impressed with Ali's heart to serve and the class all agreed that they'd like to do something to help. After further inquiries into this unfortunate event, she discovered there were children also affected by the fire that destroyed the home. Two more students; Faith & Grace stepped up to help and brought in two bags full of items!
Their class is joining together to bring in donations next week too. These sweet children truly are "doers of the Word"! They see a need and have acted on it with hearts to serve and share God's love.
Way to go 4th grade Cougars!
You make us proud.
In honor of Veterans Day, second grade Covenant students were given the assignment to write about family members or friends who currently serve or who have served in the United States military. Most students have family with military backgrounds or have family currently serving in various banches of the military.
Last spring, seventeen kindergarten students accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior. You are most likely picturing a classroom full of students praying the prayer of salvation together, but nothing could be further from the truth. Covenant teachers know the seriousness of the decision to follow Christ. It is the most important decision students will ever make, so teachers want to be certain they fully understand what they are doing.
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.
During the 2014-15 school year, Covenant's first grade class decided they wanted to write to our American soldiers for Valentine's Day. Barbara Bledsoe, first grade teacher, located a military contact to whom the notes would be mailed. Prior to mailing, students and teachers prayed over the notes and Valentines asking God to protect and bless our soldiers. They were mailed to Paul Fraser, Retired Communications Specialist, who continues to work with our military living on-base with the soldiers at Bagram Airfield. He is also Uncle Paul to one of our Covenant families.
If you know much about our school, you know what amazing students we have. This past summer several of our CCS students took part in serving our community here and around the world. Here are two special kids that made an impact:
Second grader, Zell Ferro was able to help at the Montgomery County Emergency Assistance Center through his church, First United Methodist Church-Conroe this past summer. Zac joined in with other kids by collecting new shoes and food and then delivering them to the center. They also organized the food in the food pantry. While there, Zac and his family found out that a lot of people are given peanut butter and jelly but there was a need for bread to go along with these items. Zac saw the need and decided that he and his family should try and take bread to the center every week! Every Thursday their goal is to take in 20 loaves of bread to help make a difference in their community. What a big effort by a great kid that saw a simple need. Way to go Zac. We are proud of you and your desire to be the hands and feet of Christ in serving others!
Eleventh grader, Cheney Emberg, was able to take a missions trip with Faith Bible Church last June to the Dominican Republic. While there they loved on the people in the village through Vacation Bible School, construction work, and door-to-door evangelism. Pictured below is Cheney with her sponsor child in Cotui, Dominican Republic. What an incredible opportunity to share the love of Christ to others around the world. We are proud of you Cheney and your heart to serve others.
