Christ Covenant wants you to know about these opportunities from organizations in our area.

Greyfriars Classical AcademyGreyfriars Classical Academy (GCA), located in Matthews, NC, is a classical, Christian high school which opened in the fall of 2009. GCA is a day school, but our class structure resembles that of a university, meeting together Mondays, Wednesdays and part of Fridays. Our curriculum integrates theology, history, literature, mathematics, science, aesthetics, logic, rhetoric, and language (Latin and Spanish). Each subject is taught from a decidedly biblical worldview by an expert in the field.

Adopt a SoldierAdopt A Soldier Ministry
Help us stay in touch with members of the military who are connected to our congregation.  Adopting a soldier includes sending letters or cards of encouragement, occasional care packages, and most importantly, praying for your "adopted" soldier.  This is a great ministry for small groups or families.  Do you know someone in the military who we should adopt?  If you have a family member or friend that you’d like included in our program, please call or email with the name and mailing information for that service member. To adopt a soldier, to add one to the list or to help with our ministry, contact Jill Andersen at 704-846-8784 or jara1212@aol.com.
