Lenten Suppers Begin Ash Wednesday, Feb. 10th
Join us on Ash Wednesday, February 10th, for our first Lenten Supper. We're having pulled pork, mac & cheese, veggies, and dessert. To see the full dinner and worship schedule, click here. Meals will remain $5/person and $20/family and be FREE for children under 12 years of age (no child care will be provided) AND, if you've never been to a Wednesday Lenten Supper at Covenant, your first one is FREE!
The theme this year is, "Learning the Word, Living the Word". Speakers will talk about their favorite Bible and their favorite teaching, story or verse from the Bible. Come join us for dinner at 5:30pm and listen to Pastor Charlie talk about his first Bible. This is a special time to learn and live together as God's people.
Read through Luke. During the six and a half weeks of Lent, we invite you to prayerfully read through the entire gospel according to Luke, to more deeply appreciate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
Special Lenten Music
On Ash Wednesday, Covenant will sing music from "Children Of The Earth," an Ash Wednesday service composed by Richard Bruxvoort-Colligan. Richard has recently completed this service especially for Covenant, and as an added blessing Richard himself will be with us on Ash Wednesday to teach and lead the songs. Ben Welch and members of the New Day Ensemble will join him. For subsequent Lenten services, Covenant will use more music by Richard Bruxvoort-Colligan, from his "Hidden With Christ" Lenten Vespers service. The meditative service will include songs, readings and moments of silence. We hope you will join us for these meaningful worship experiences, starting on February 10th with Ash Wednesday.
Richard Bruxvoort Colligan is about adventurous and imaginative music for the ever-evolving church. As a composer and musician, he serves across denominations singing and teaching about worship and spiritual formation. He has recorded several albums of original worship music, and his hymns have been published by the UCC, ELCA, UMC and PC(USA). Click here for more information on Richard Bruxvoort-Colligan's work.
Annual Meeting Next Sunday, February 14th
The Annual Meeting will convene on Sunday, February 14th at 10:00am in the sanctuary. The agenda will include:
- Receipt of the 2015 Annual Report
- Presentation of the 2016 Budget

With respect for Covenant's commitment to environmentalism, we encourage those with Internet access to read the Annual Report on-line as it is now posted. For those who do not have access, a limited number of copies are available for review at church.
Cookies of the Heart on Valentine's Day
Sunday, February 14th, 9:45-11:00am in Bradfield Hall
Do you want to give your sweetie a Valentine cookie lovingly made only for them? How about one just for yourself? Plan to spend a few minutes in Bradfield Hall on Valentine's Day decorating a cookie with love. Please join us!
Coloring in Lent
Our Advent coloring sheets were very popular, so we will have sheets out on Wednesdays and Sundays in Lent, with key words to ponder in this holy season. Click here to get your own copy, or better yet, come to church and join the fun! We encourage you to partake in these Lenten activities, to share the journey and grow in faith with other Covenant people.
