 This Sunday at Covenant (May 29,2016)
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--thirteenh week of the Spring Quarter
At this time we offer three opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:
Gender Roles in the Church, Home and Society 
Teacher:  Elder Blaine Locheed
This course seeks to examine how men and women are to relate biblically to one another in the realms of church, home, and society. The class will not use a specific textbook, but will rely heavily on the pertinent biblical texts, classroom discussion and secondary materials.
New Members Class
Teacher: Senior Pastor Rev. Lou Veiga and Elder Jeremy Thomas
This class is an in-depth study of the five questions posed to everyone wishing to join the church: 1) Do you acknowledge yourself to be a sinner in the sight of God justly deserving His displeasure and without hope except in His sovereign mercy?  2) Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and Savior of sinners, and do you receive and rest upon Him alone for salvation as He is offered in the Gospel?  3) Do you now resolve and promise, in humble reliance upon the grace of the Holy Spirit, that you will endeavor to live as becomes a follower of Christ?  4) Do you promise to support the church in its worship and work to the best of your ability?  5) Do you submit yourself to the government and discipline of the church and promise to further its purity and peace?
An affirmative to these questions and a credible profession of faith before our Session of elders qualifies one to become a member at Covenant Presbyterian 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 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.

11:00 AM  Morning Worship Service

Worship Theme:  Our Generous God
Sermon Title:     "Your Inheritance"
Sermon Text:      Genesis 25: 1-10
Preaching:          Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:   I.  All Things Go to the Son of Promise
                           II.  All Things Work Together for Good to God's People
Although Abraham had other wives and concubines, he gave his full inheritance to Isaac, the son that God had promised him. In doing so, Abraham gave complete support to the continuance of God's covenant of grace. Abraham lived a full life by the blessing of God, and was honored by his sons at his death. 
Sermon Theme:  God Calls His People
Sermon Title:  
  "God's Chosen People"
Sermon Text:     1 Peter 2: 9, 10
Preaching:          Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:   I.  Your Estate by Nature
                           II.  Your Estate by God's Choosing
                          III.  Your Spiritual Ministry
Before you believed in Christ you were separate from God, and you were under His wrath and curse for sin. You received no mercy for your sin, so that you were without hope. But God has called you out of this terrible darkness that you may minister to Him by proclaiming His greatness, by entering into His kingdom of light.



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).
