 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Thirteenth Week of the Summer Quarter
This summer we offer four opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:

The Gospel of John (Part 2)
Teacher:  Rev. Dr. Julian Zugg
Our Assistant Pastor Julian Zugg teaches for Miami International Seminary (MINTS). He has developed a course on the Gospel of John that emphasizes this gospel's interest and development of Christian missions. This course is a continuation of the class he taught here last year. The class will be taught at the laymen's level of understanding, so bring your Bibles and enjoy!
 
 
 ♦The Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life
Teacher:  Elder Wayne Slaikeu
This course is an introduction to the disciplines and graces of the Christian life. It is based n a book by Mr. Jerry Bridges. The book will be provided for the students free of charge.
 
 
New Members Class
Teachers: Elders Scott Baker and Bill Stuck
Our new members' class is designed to introduce visitors to the life and duties of a Christian disciple. It also teaches the basic Christian doctrines that one must confess in order to give a cogent answer for the Christian's hope of glory. The class will run 5 to 6 weeks. It is required for all who seek membership at Covenant Presbyterian Church, but attendance in the class does not obligate anyone to join the church.
 
 
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, 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
Worship Theme:  Fellowship with God
Sermon Title:   "The Desire for Christian Fellowship"
Sermon Text:  Romans 15: 22-29
Preaching:   Senior Pastor Rev. Lou Veiga
Sermon Outline:      I.   Christians Have a Strong Desire for Fellowship
                              II.   Christians Have a Strong Desire to Help One Another
                                                      
All healthy Christians share a strong desire to fellowship with one another, enjoy each other's company, and share their gifts one with another. The more grace a Christian has, the more pronounced are his gifts and his graces tending toward this loving fellowship--despite differences in culture or country.
 

6:00 PM Evening Congregational Prayer
Worship Theme:  The Authority of God Our Father
Sermon Title:   "Honor Your Superiors"
Sermon Text:  Exodus 20: 12
Preaching:   Senior Pastor Rev. Lou Veiga
Sermon Outline:    I.   Preserve the Honor of Your Superior
                            II.   Do Not Neglect to Honor Your Superior
                           III.   Incentives for Honoring Your Superior
                               
Honor and obey your superiors, for Jehovah your God commands this. Dishonoring your superiors is dishonoring God. If you obey your superiors, it will go well with you in life, but the rebellious can anticipate the Lord's displeasure and wrath.
 
 
 

 
                          

 

 

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).
