Reformation Day and Fall Festival
To gather with God's people in united adoration of the Father
is as necessary to the Christian life as prayer.
– Martin Luther
The students are filled with excitement and talk of costumes, pumpkins, picnic and fall fun. October 31 is Reformation Day, the day that a page of history was turned in the world and the Church. On this day in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his thesis to the door of his church in Wittenberg, Germany, citing 95 concerns, the most important of which is that salvation is a gift from God that cannot be earned by us. Luther came to understand this by studying the book of Romans, which prompted him to translate the Bible into German so that people could understand the message of God’s love for mankind.
Today, our grammar students proudly shared their history presentations in elaborate costumes. Our logic and rhetoric students engaged with pastors, discussing friendship, literature and the nature of truth. After a family picnic in our courtyard with our houses, our classes rotated through stations including Duck, Duck, Turkey, Pass the Pumpkin, Sack Races, Steal the Bacon, Face Painting, Hay Rides and more.
Our Student Council planned, organized and led the afternoon’s activities for our grammar students. Through mentoring and discipleship Covenant Academy is training up leaders, building relationships and fostering a love for learning one exciting day at a time.
