Students join together on Wednesdays for an opportunity to worship together in a small community setting. Chapels are age-segregated and include praise songs, scripture reading, and a message from principals, teachers, or guest speakers.
Bible Studies are small discipleship groups that are usually organized and led by students. These take place before and after school.
During homeroom, teachers lead a devotional for students. Students have the opportunity to share prayer requests and pray for one another during this time.
High School Advisory:
Gender-specific high school advisory groups, led by teachers, take place during homeroom. These groups stay together all year long. During this small group discipleship opportunity, students share prayer requests and pray for one another and the school.
The impact of students at Covenant Day extends far beyond Matthews, NC. Since 2007, Covenant Day has partnered with El Shaddai Ministries to send students and faculty to Les Cayes, Haiti to serve thousands of Haitians. In February 2011, students served more than 1,000 orphans, delivered supplies, and equipped a computer lab for the El Shaddai School by building desks, setting up laptops, and establishing a network. Students and faculty provided computer training and English as a Second Language for the teachers of the El Shaddai School. The computer lab will also be used as a Cyber Café and will be opened to the community for computer training. In previous trips, students have painted murals at orphanages, held Vacation Bible Schools, and hosted sports clinics.
Staff & Faculty Devotions:
Every morning, teachers gather before homeroom to pray for one another and their students. Additionally, the entire faculty and staff meet quarterly for worship and devotions.
Moms In Prayer:
Covenant Day School’s Moms In Prayer groups meet every Wednesday. This is a time for CDS moms to join together to pray for the Covenant Day School community. Moms In Prayer is an international organization that impacts children and schools worldwide for Christ by gathering mothers to pray.
