 This Sunday at Covenant (November 29, 2015)
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Twelveth week of the Fall Quarter
At this time we offer four opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:
The Westminster Shorter Catechism
Teacher:  Jeremy Thomas
This class will teach the Westminster Shorter Catechism, one of the constitutional standards of the Presbyterian Church in America. Additionally the class will use Thomas Vincent's Commentary on the same. The catechism presents foundational Biblical doctrine with Scripture proofs, and is particularly useful for understanding what man is to believe concerning God, and what duty God requires of man. There will be lots of Q & A. Memory work will be encouraged in this class.
The Institutes of the Christian Religion, by John Calvin
Teacher:  Assistant Pastor Rev. Dr. Julian Zugg
There are very few books that have changed the world, and this is one of them. It is also one of the greatest books ever written for Christians. Calvin wrote it to offer a general grounding for all believers in the faith. He wrote it, not to replace the Scriptures but to give Christians a clear framework for understanding and interpreting them. It is a wonderful tool and if you master the institutes, you have a solid foundation for life and godliness.
One reason so few have read the Institutes is that it was written in Latin and French and translated 100 years ago, making the material harder to access. The aim of the Sunday school class is to present Calvin as he would have wanted to be presented—clearly and simply. This allows us to see how he built on earlier theology and influenced later Reformed theology, even to the present. Class notes are available here.
New Members Class
Teachers:  Covenant Elders
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!
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 Assisted Living, which is less than half a mile from Covenant. Your help is appreciated as a singer, and as an encourager to the residents there. Please see Ben West for details on how you can help.

11:00 AM  Morning Worship Service
Sermon Theme:  Jesus and His Disciples
Sermon Title:     "Jesus with His Own"
Sermon Text:     John 13: 1-20
Preaching:         Dr. Julian Zugg, Assistant Pastor
6:00 PM  Evening Worship Service
Sermon Theme:  God the Healer
Sermon Title:     "Healing of Body and Spirit"
Sermon Text:     Mark 1: 29-34
Preaching:         Intern Ben West
Sermon Outline:     I.  Jesus Brings Us Physical Healing (vs. 29-31)
                           II.  Jesus Brings Us Spiritual Healing (vs. 32-34)
Our culture today has a fascination with holistic medicine, treatments that apparently heal all dimensions of a person's life. Some teas and herbs even claim to bring so-called healing to the "spirit" and not just to the body. While God-given medicines do, in fact, heal the body, the only true healer, however, for both body and spirit is Jesus, the Son of God. Come on Sunday evening and learn about our Savior, the Great Physician.                                                        



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).
