Dear Covenant Church Family,

The Lord our God is upon His heavenly throne (Psalm 93:2).  He knows us completely (Psalm 139:1-4).  He sees us constantly (Psalm 33:13-15).  He understands us in every way (Psalm 103:13-14).  He hears our prayers (Matthew 7:7-11) and is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).  Believing these truths we can rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for us (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

For the Lord’s Day 11.6.16

Dear Covenant Church Family,

1)  Don’t forget the time change for this weekend.  You will get an extra hour of sleep on Sunday morning.  With that in mind, let me take this opportunity to encourage all of you non-Sunday School folks to give an effort to be here this week.  There are some great opportunities for you and your house to learn more from the Word of God with the rest of your church family.

2)  We will celebrate the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper together this week as we normally do each first Lord’s Day of every month.

3)  If you are available on Saturday please stop by the Covenant Church tent down on Jackson Street at Market Days.

4)  Let us walk in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.  Let us love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.  Let us love our neighbor as ourselves.
