This Sunday in History:

1998 - President Bill Clinton's videotaped grand jury testimony was publicly broadcast; in it, Clinton quibbled with prosecutors over "the truth of my relationship" with Monica Lewinsky—at one point asking the grand jury to clarify the meaning of the word it.

 This Sunday at Covenant (September 21, 2014)
 
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Second Week of the Fall Quarter
This summer we offer three opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:

The Book of Acts
Teacher:  Rev. Dr. Julian Zugg
Our Assistant Pastor Julian Zugg teaches for Miami International Seminary (MINTS). The class will be taught at the layman's level of understanding, so bring your Bibles and enjoy the lectures!
 
 
New Members Class
Teachers: Elder Scott Baker and Sr. Pastor Lou Veiga
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:  The God of Unity
Sermon Title:   "The Christian's Watch"
Sermon Text:  Romans 16: 17-19
Preaching:   Senior Pastor Rev. Lou Veiga
Sermon Outline:  I.  Every Christian Must Keep Watch Against Divisions in the Church
                        II.  Every Christian May Recognize a Divisive Person in the Church
                       III.  Every True Christian May Be Recognized in the Church
                                                      
You have a duty to watch out for anyone who troubles the church of Christ. According to our text, divisive persons do not believe nor obey the Word of God, but place obstacles in the way of the Truth. Divisive persons are not spiritual, but sensual, and pose a great danger to your salvation. Join us this Sunday morning as we worship the God of unity.
 

6:00 PM Evening Worship Service
Worship Theme:  Our Bountiful God
Sermon Title:   "Wealth Must Be Gained Justly"
Sermon Text:  Exodus 20: 15
Preaching:   Senior Pastor Rev. Lou Veiga
Sermon Outline:  I.  You Must Deal Equitably With Your Neighbor's and Your Own Wealth and 
                                Property
                        II.  You Must Not Hinder Your Neighbor's or Your Own Wealth and Property

Jehovah your God commands that you deal justly with your neighbor and all that he possesses. God also commands that you deal equitably with your own possessions, as He has given these to you for your own use and comfort. Join us this Sunday evening as we worship our bountiful God.
 
 

 
                          

 

 

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).
