 This Sunday at Covenant, August 19, 2018
   
 9:40 AM  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.

Worship Theme:  The Glory of Jesus Christ
Sermon Title:       "The Lamb Alone Is Worthy"
Sermon Text:       Revelation 5: 5-10
Preaching:            Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:    I.  The Good News Is That the Lord Jesus Has Conquered                             II.  The Good News Is That the Lord Jesus Will Open the                                        Scroll
                           III.  The Good News Is Joyfully Celebrated in Heaven
                             
Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God that was slain, is victorious over sin and death. He alone is worthy to inaugurate all things leading to God's glorious new kingdom—the Lamb alone is worthy to take the scroll from the right hand of the Almighty. The worth of the Conquering Lamb, His glorious redemption and His goodness to God's people is cause for great celebration and song before the throne of God. 
 
5:00 PM  Worship Service
Worship Theme:  God's Suffering People
Sermon Title:       "The Solidarity of the Suffering Church"
Sermon Text:       Psalm 129
Preaching:            Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:    I.  Jehovah's Pilgrims All Identify with the Suffering of 
                                       God's People
                             II.  Jehovah's Pilgrims All Identify with the Perseverance                                        of God's People
                            III.  Jehovah's Pilgrims All Imprecate the Haters of Zion
 
There is a real spiritual and organic solidarity among all of God's people from all ages to the present. It is therefore most natural for all Pilgrims to Zion to identify with the sufferings of their spiritual brothers. They study and know their spiritual ancestry, and are especially grieved about the church's sufferings in the past and in the present. And yet all of Zion's Pilgrims also know that God provided grace unto perseverance through suffering; and so they do not quit their pilgrim journeys. The enemies of God become the enemies of God's children, which remain on earth; and so it is only right that they imprecate against the enemies of God according to His Word and Spirit.

 

 


  
“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).
