 This Sunday at Covenant (October 26, 2014)
 
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Eighth Week of the Fall Quarter
This summer we offer three opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:

The Book of Acts
Teacher:  Elder Ted Hess
Our Assistant Pastor Julian Zugg, who teaches for Miami International Seminary (MINTS), developed this course. The class will be taught at the layman's level of understanding, so bring your Bibles and enjoy the lectures!
 
 
New Members Class
Teachers: Elder Scott Baker and Sr. Pastor Lou Veiga
Our new members' class is designed to introduce visitors to the life and duties of a Christian disciple. It also teaches the basic Christian doctrines that one must confess in order to give a cogent answer for the Christian's hope of glory. The class will run 5 to 6 weeks. It is required for all who seek membership at Covenant Presbyterian Church, but attendance in the class does not obligate anyone to join the church.
 
 
Worship at The Abbey Assisted Living--A Practicum
Intern Ben West leading
You are invited to participate in our outreach worship service at The Abbey, which is less than half a mile from Covenant. Your help is appreciated as a singer, and as an encourager to the residents there.
 
 
 
 
11:00 AM  Morning Worship Service
Worship Theme: The God of Creation
Sermon Title:
   "God Begins His Creation"
Sermon Text:   Genesis 1: 1, 2
Preaching:   Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Outline:   I.  Introduction to Genesis and to the Bible
              II.  In the Beginning God Created All Things from Nothing
                                                      
If you would acknowledge the true and living God, and grant Him the majesty and worship He deserves, you must receive His own testimony concerning the beginning of all things. God gives us His testimony in Holy Scripture (the Bible). In particular, you are to believe that God created all things of nothing, through His Spirit, and that the initial creation a dark, formless void. Join us this Sunday as we worship the God who created us for His own glory.
 
 
6:00 PM Evening Worship Service
Worship Theme:  God Cares for Us
Sermon Title:
   "Be Content with What You Have"
Sermon Text:    Exodus 20: 17
Preaching:   Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Outline:   I.  The Tenth Commandment Stated Positively
              II.  The Tenth Commandment Stated Negatively
 
All discontentment with our material possessions and outward estate is sin against God. All inordinate affections toward anything that belongs to another person is also sin. We must be contented with all that God has given us, or we sin against God. It is a grievous sin to complain about our circumstances in life: it reveals a heart of ingratitude and unbelief. Join us this week as we worship our bountiful and gracious God.

 
                          

 

 

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).
