 This Sunday at Covenant (October 11, 2015)
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Fifth 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 by email.
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.

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).
