Sunday Morning Worship Changes Coming This Fall
The return to two worship services and Sunday school on Sunday mornings will take effect on Sunday, September 14th, along with a change in the Sunday morning schedule as follows:
School Supplies Donations Needed
There are a variety of ways you can help in the fight against homelessness. As the summer winds down, and the back-to-school sales appear, please consider making a donation of school supplies for Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) families and their children for the upcoming school year. Items other than the normal school supply also needed:
- Sealable snack, sandwich and gallon size storage bags
- Boxes of tissue
- Hand sanitizer
- Cleansing wipes
- Dry erase markers
Donations can be placed in the labeled red bin located just outside Donna Monson's office. Judy Stevenson, Covenant's lead IHN coordinator, will deliver supplies to The Road Home offices on Olin Avenue.
Covenant's 60th Anniversary T-Shirts NOW Available
The 60th Anniversary Committee will be selling commemorative T-shirts starting Sunday, August 3 in Bradfield Hall following the service. Please stop in to purchase a shirt. We hope as many people as possible will wear their shirts to worship for the kick-off celebration, Sunday, September 7th. Children and adult sizes available at $5.00 each.
"Remember, Celebrate & Dream!"
Starting September 7, we will celebrate the 60th anniversary for 60 (ish) days. There will be activities and opportunities in each program area of the church to do something with the "60 theme" for example, we will be collecting 60 mission gifts for local outreach and global concerns, 60 hours of praying, 60 healthy habits, and an anniversary gift to help Covenant reach another 60 years and more.
Please mark your calendars for:
- Kick-off Birthday Celebration: Sunday, September 7, following worship through 12:30pm. Outside picnic, music, games for all ages. A light meal will be provided: burgers, hotdogs, chips, fruit, birthday cake and ice cream. In case of rain, the festivities will be moved inside. Please contact Nancy Enderle to help or sign up on the Coming Events bulletin board.
- Talent Show: Saturday, October 4 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. (Hosted by Congregational Life Committee)
Join the fun as we celebrate our history and our talents!
A sign up sheet for acts will be posted in mid-August. A light dinner and dessert will be provided.
- Closing Celebration: Sunday, November 16. We will close the 60 days of celebrating at both worship services exploring the theme, "Remember, Celebrate & Dream."
