Bob and Sandy Laroe were honored on April 30, 2017 during our Fellowship Luncheon. They have been members of Covenant for 36 years and have served faithfully in many roles during that time. Bob and Sandy are moving to a new house in Montgomery County and will be seeking a new church home nearby. We will certainly miss them.

 This Sunday at Covenant (May 28, 2017)
 
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School--Last 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.
 
 
Worship at The Abbey Assisted Living--A Practicum
Elder 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

Sermon Theme:   God Is Sufficient
Sermon Title:     "Jehovah Is All You Need"
Sermon Text:      Genesis 39: 21-23
Preaching:        Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:     I.  The Presence of Jehovah Is Strong Help
                           II.  The Favor of Jehovah Exalts the Humble
                          III.  The Blessing of Jehovah Brings Success
 
If Jehovah is your God by covenant, you need never despair. He is both willing and able to help you. And He is always with you. Jehovah's favor will set you apart from unbelievers in honesty, integrity, and in trustworthiness by His sanctifying presence. You will be given opportunity to serve God and others and exercise a godly dominion over that to which you have been entrusted. Jehovah's favor reverses and overrules sin and its consequent misery, and brings universal success and comfort, even in the midst of difficult trials and suffering.

Evening Worship Service
Sermon Theme:   God Is Our Shepherd
Sermon Titles:   "Beware of False Prophets--Part II"
Sermon Text:   2 Peter 2: 10-15a
Preaching:    Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:     I.  False Prophets Live According to the Flesh
                           II.  False Prophets Blaspheme Authority
                          III.  False Prophets Entice Unstable Souls Through Sensuality
                          IV.  False Prophets Are Condemned Already
 
False prophets live wicked lives of fleshly abandon, spurning authority and ensnaring weak souls in their nets for profit. They are accursed of God, because they know the right way but have chosen to depart from 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).
