 This Sunday at Covenant (July 5, 2015)
 
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Fifth week of the Summer Quarter
At this time we offer four opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:
Body Life (Video series)
Elders  Blaine Locheed and Wayne Slaikeu, proctors
This class will teach the dynamics of vital Christian living in the church, which is the Body of Christ. Every Christian is a member of Christ's spiritual body, and every member of that body has a vital function to perform in the church. This class will examine the spiritual gifts and dutiful service in the church.
 
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!
 
 
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.
 
 
11:00 AM  Morning Worship Service
Sermon Theme:  The God of Blessings and Curses
Sermon Title:     "Canaan Is Accursed in Ham"
Sermon Text:     Genesis 9: 18-28
Preaching:         Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:    I.  After the Flood, All Families Were Populated from Noah's Sons
                          II.  After the Flood, All Families Would Not Be Equally Blessed by God
                                              
After the Flood, all of the families of the earth were populated from the three sons of Noah; yet not all of the families of the earth are blessed. Some families, such as Shem and Japheth, enjoy continued mercies and blessings from knowing God, while others, such as Canaan, suffer a shameful and difficult servitude.
                         
6:00 PM  Evening Worship Service
Sermon Theme:  Communion with God
Sermon Title:     "Walk Worth of Your Calling"
Sermon Text:     Ephesians 4: 1-6
Preaching:         Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:    I.  You Must Walk in a Manner Worthy of Your Calling
                          II.  You Must Keep Unity in the Body of Christ
                       
Paul has suffered much for the sake of the Gospel, and he exhorts us to do the same for the sake of the Gospel. We are to resemble Christ in our humble and sacrificial service to one another. You do this best by showing forth unity in the church, the unity in the Spirit that is already ours through the gift of Christ.
                    
 
                                                                       
           

 

 

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).
