 This Sunday at Covenant (May 24, 2015)
 
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Twelvth Week of the Spring Quarter
At this time we offer four opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:
Ancient Church History
Teacher:  Rev. Dr. Julian Zugg, Assistant Pastor
What where the early trials and difficulties encountered by the apostolic and early post-apostolic church? How was the faith of the first Christian communities lived out in the context of a pagan world? And who are some of the men and women that we can look back to for faithful examples to us i the present age? These important questions and others will be studied in this class.
 
Officer Training
Teacher:  Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
This class will examine the doctrinal standards of the Presbyterian church in America in 25 lessons. The class has assigned readings from the Westminster Study Guide by Dr. Joseph Pipa, Jr., and is designed to be more discussion than lecture. Although the class is designed for elder and deacon nominees, others are also welcome—especially the wives of these nominees.
 
New Members Class
Teacher: Elders Scott Baker and Ted Hess
Anyone interested in joining Covenant Presbyterian Church should attend this class. Our church is committed to the spiritual and physical well-being of all people, but especially of those who vow to keep the faith as brothers and sisters in Christ. The basics of the Christian faith, as well as our Presbyterian and Reformed distinctives are discussed. Visitors are always welcome!

Sermon Theme:
The God of New Beginnings
Sermon Title:    "Preparing to Re-Inhabit the Earth"
Sermon Text:    Genesis 8: 1-14
Preaching:    Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:   I. God Prepares the Earth to be Re-Inhabited
                         II.  Noah Anticipates Re-Inhabiting the Earth
                 
God had promised to deliver Noah and all the animals in the ark, and so He now remembers His promise. God began to prepare the earth for habitation through process, according to His will. Noah believed God's promise and anticipated patiently the retraction of the flood waters for another 6 months before the earth was again made ready. This re-populating of the earth was a kind of new beginning for all creation.
              

6:00 PM  Evening Worship Service
Sermon Theme:  The Gospel of Christ
Sermon Title:    "The Church's Proclamation"
Sermon Text:    Ephesians 3: 7-10
Preaching:    Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:   I. Paul Was Commissioned to Preach the Gospel
                         II.  The Content of the Gospel Message
                        III.  The Purpose of the Gospel Proclamation
                        IV.  The Agency of the Gospel Proclamation
                      
God has purposed that the Church should proclaim Christ, the mystery of God, to heavenly beings. To this end He has sent His apostles, such as Paul. God enriches us, and displays the wonder of His manifold wisdom in His people, the church, so that we now proclaim the mystery of Christ to the principalities in heavenly places.                      

 

 

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).
