There is so much more to school than math, Latin, literature, history or science. That’s because the spiritual and moral formation of a child is central to education. At New Covenant we continually reflect on ways to acquaint our students with the broader responsibilities of life – responsibilities beyond their studies; responsibilities they should embrace as they enter young adulthood. Each year our students participate in Hands & Hearts, a service project that mobilizes hundreds of students and parent-volunteers throughout the Hill City. Our projects are diverse, involving children in painting murals at Rush Homes, a local facility providing affordable housing to dependent individuals; assembling furniture at the Arc of Central Virginia, a facility working with the intellectually disabled; or providing an “extreme ministry makeover” at the Salvation Army. Each student learns by doing, working alongside adult volunteers who enthusiastically modeled the value of willing service.
This year our Hands& Hearts Day will take place April 22, 2020.
