 This Sunday at Covenant, July 22,2018
   
 Adult Sunday School
 
During the Summer quarter, we offer these opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:
♦ Night Visions of Zechariah. During this quarter, the class will focus on the first 6 chapters of Zechariah. Zechariah's introductory message (1:1-6) is a call for spiritual renewal, to return to God in repentance and faith.  In the following (1:7 - Chapter 6), Zechariah describes a series of night visions, intended to encourage and exhort the Jews to complete their physical work of temple building and to revive their faith in the Branch— the greater temple Builder to come. In the class, we'll look at how these visions apply to the people of God of our day, how they encourage us to continue the spiritual work of building up the temple of the Lord, and how they point us to our ultimate fulfillment as the true Jerusalem, the city of our God. Teacher: Elder Scott Baker: Location: N. Education Building.

Our Pledge to Visitors: What You Can Expect If You Visit Us Next Sunday  
We will worship God only as He has prescribed in His Holy Scriptures.  We do not manipulate consciences or levy man-made rules and practices on the people of God.  We love this liberty because the Son of God has made us free (John 8:36).
We will worship God by delivering His whole counsel to His people.  We teach the whole of the Bible, because Jesus Christ has commanded us to teach it (Matthew 28:18-20).

We will preach sermons in consecutive order through entire books of the Bible without side-stepping the difficult texts (Acts 20:26, 27).  We find harmony in the Scriptures; therefore we explain the meaning of the whole Bible and apply its teachings practically for your Christian walk.
We will not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus and Him crucified.  We declare that we are bereft of any righteousness of our own.  We freely confess our sin every week.  But the good news is that God saves sinners and justifies the ungodly through faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 4:5).  We glory in Christ and in the righteousness that is imputed to us through faith in Him (Philippians 3:8-10; Titus 3:5).



 
 

  
“This is the covenant I will make ... declares the Lord.  I will put my laws in their minds and
write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people” (Hebrews 8:10).
