Introducing Rev. Dan Clay,
our new Associate Pastor, and his wife Amy.

 
 

 
This Sunday in History:
1608 - One of the greatest poets of the English language, John Milton, author of Paradise Lost, was born in Bread Street, Cheapside, London. Writing in a grand style, he portrayed the fall of Lucifer and the subsequent fall of man with great power and majesty of language. Paradise Lost and Milton's other epics, Paradise Regained and Sampson Agonistes, were all written fifteen to twenty years after the poet went blind. A defender of the Puritan cause, Milton was arrested after the restoration of Charles II. However, his reputation helped shorten the length of his imprisonment. He died on November 8, 1674.

 This Sunday at Covenant, December 9, 2018
   
 9:40 AM  Adult Sunday School
During the winter quarter, we offer these opportunities for learning on Sunday morning:
♦ Christian Worldview.
God has not only saved Christians from sin, but He has saved believers to a kingdom of righteousness, joy and peace where Jesus Christ is Lord. This class will help us to understand our world in a Biblical manner, to live according to God's commands in this world, and to thoughtfully communicate what it means to be a Christian to those among whom we live.
 Teacher: Pastor Dan Clay; Location: N. Education Building.
 
♦ 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 Elder Ben West for details on how you can help.
 
 
 
Worship Theme:    Knowing and Trusting Jesus
Sermon Title:       "Facing the Unknown"
Sermon Text:        John 14: 1-4
Preaching:            Rev. Dan Clay, Associate Pastor
Sermon Outline:   I.  When we face the unknown, who we trust in is more 
                                   significant than what we will experience (v. 1)
                           II.  When we face the unknown, we must remember that
                                  Jesus has prepared a place for us, and is preparing us
                                  for that place (v. 2)
                          III.  When we face the unknown, we may be comforted that
                                  no matter what happens to us, we will be with Jesus.
                                  (v. 3-4)
 
Teaching:  Knowing and trusting Jesus is our best preparation for facing the
                 unknown.
 
 
The second Sunday evening of every month is devoted to congregational prayer. You are invited to bring your thanksgivings and supplications before the Lord with us. Afterwards we will enjoy a meal and fellowship together, and you are invited to attend this as well.
 

                   


  
“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).
