This Sunday in History:

1765 - Frederick County, Maryland, repudiated the British Stamp Act—it was the first act of open rebellion through the agency of magisterial interposition, and it established a pattern of the fledgling American patriot movement.

 This Sunday at Covenant (November 23, 2014)
 
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Eleventh Week of the Fall Quarter
This summer we offer three opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:
The Book of Acts
Teacher:  Deacon J.P. Knox
Our Assistant Pastor Julian Zugg, who teaches for Miami International Seminary (MINTS), developed this course. 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 Knowledge, Wisdom, and Holiness
Sermon Title:
   "Animals and the Image-Bearer"
Sermon Text:   Genesis 1: 24-27
Preaching:   Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Outline:   I.  God Created All Land Animals on Day Six
              II.  God Created Man on Day Six
                                                      
God made all land animals from the earth on Day Six. On this same day He also made man a unique creature, in His own image. Because man is in God's image, he is capable of ruling over the rest of God's creation—in knowledge, wisdom, righteousness, and power. Indeed, man is commanded by God to rule over all things. Men and women are therefore distinguished from all of the rest of the creatures, and have the unique charter to show forth God's glory and likeness by ruling justly over the creation. Join us for worship this Sunday morning as we learn of God's dominion over all.
 
 
6:00 PM Evening Worship Service
Worship Theme:  The God of Every Blessing
Sermon Title:
   "Great Praise to God the Father"
Sermon Text:   Ephesians 1: 3-6
Preaching:   Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Outline:   I.  We Must Praise God the Father for Completely Blessing Us in Christ
              II.  We Must Praise God the Father for Eternally Choosing Us
             III.  We Must Praise God the Father for His Glorious Grace
           
God the Father, together with the Son and the Holy Spirit, is greatly to be praised. Our heavenly Father has decked us with every spiritual favor in Christ Jesus our Lord. God's love to us is specific and eternal, and so it can never change. God will be eternally praised for saving His people by His glorious grace. Worship the Triune God this Sunday evening together with us!.

 
                          

 

 

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).
