 This Sunday at Covenant (March 26, 2017)
 
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Fouth week of the Spring Quarter
At this time we offer these opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:
Living by God's Promises, by Joel Beeke & James La Belle
In Living by God's Promises, authors Joel R. Beeke and James A. La Belle draw from stellar Puritan treatises on divine promises and offer them in contemporary language for today's readers. Moving beyond historical interest, this book explores a topic that is vital for Christian living. By God's grace, it will help you treasure the promises that God establishes in Christ and conveys in His covenant love to comfort you in sorrow, strengthen your faith, and deepen your Christian life as you appropriate God's precious promises.     Teacher:  Dan Gelok

New Members' Class--Meeting in the Pastor's Study
In this class, students will learn what every Christian is to know about belonging to a Presbyterian church. Why do we have a membership role in this church? Why are we required to vow to God in public that we believe His Gospel and will obey His teaching? Do I have to be Presbyterian in order to join this church? The class is based on the five questions posed to new members when they join.

11:00 AM  Morning Worship Service

Sermon Theme:   The People of God
Sermon Title:     "God's Israel: Godly and Ungodly"
Sermon Text:      Genesis 37: 12-34
Preaching:        Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:  I.  Godly Fathers Care for Their Children and Possessions
                        II.  Godly Sons Are Trustworthy and Obey Their Fathers
                       III.  Ungodly Sons Are Vicious and Care Only for Themselves
 
Although covenanted with Jehovah God and distinguished from other nations, Israel showed signs of both good and evil from the beginning. While wickedness in the church is inexcusable and is to be condemned, you must understand the reality of indwelling sin and corruption even in God's people; and you must take heed to yourself and learn obedience from your youth—lest you, too, turn out to be ungodly.


5:00 PM  Evening Worship Service
Sermon Theme:   The God of Truth
Sermon Title:  
  "Attesting the Majestic Glory"
Sermon Text:      2 Peter 1: 16-18
Preaching:         Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:   I.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ Is Not Myth
                         II.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ Is Based on Apostolic Testimony
                        III.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ Is Based on God's Own Testimony
 
The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is not a clever invention of man. The Gospel is based on the testimony of holy men who were eye-witnesses of the majesty of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, the hidden majesty of the Son of God was unveiled before witnesses on the holy mountain—God the Father attesting of the unique glory of His Son Jesus. Therefore we have every reason to trust this good news of our salvation.
 

 

 

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).
