For the Lord’s Day 5.28.17

Dear Covenant Church Family,

Many of us have very busy summers out ahead of us.  I know of celebrations, travel, job changes, moving from one house to another, etc…  In the midst of it all let us keep first things first!!  We are God’s people.  We are not our own, we were bought with a price!!  We are to glorify God in all things.  So, whether we eat, drink, run, cry, fall, rejoice, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Hymns for Worship:

#296 All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name!

Jesus, Lover of My Soul (Words: Wesley.  Music: Greg Thompson)

Abide With Me (Words: Lyte, Smith.  Music: Justin Smith)

For the Lord’s Day 5.14.17

Dear Covenant Church Family,

“We have been forewarned that an enemy relentlessly threatens us, an enemy who is the very embodiment of rash boldness, of military prowess, of crafty wiles, of untiring zeal and haste, of every conceivable weapon and of skill in the science of warfare.  We must, then, bend our every effort to this goal: that we should not let ourselves be overwhelmed by carelessness or faintheartedness, but on the contrary, with courage rekindled stand our ground in combat.”

– John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, The Westminster Press, Philadelphia, PA, 1960, pp. 173.

Hymns for Worship:

#92 A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (based on Psalm 46)

Jesus’ Precious Blood (words: William Irons, music: Clint Wells)

#571 Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus
