Welcome to Covenant Presbyterian Church!
We are a community of people who gather to
worship, learn, and grow as Christians.
Fall Schedule Resumes on Sunday, September 25
"Foundations": The Covenant Class
Sundays, September 25 & October 2, 9, 10:00am
Led by Pastor Charlie Berthoud
You are invited to come together for a time of growth and fellowship, as we spend time reflecting on the basics of being a Christian and being part of Covenant.
- What do the words LEARNING, LOVING, and LIVING mean for us here and now?
- How can we develop a stronger foundation of faith?
- What teachings of the Bible are most important for life in the 21st century?
- What does it really mean to be a member of Covenant?
- How can we really live as Christians in our daily lives?
Newer members are especially encouraged to participate, but this class is for everyone.
Do You Find Yourself Confused About How to Act When Meeting a Person with Dementia?
Sundays, September 25 & October 9, 10:00-10:30am
The Health Cabinet is hosting two classes by Don Kirschner and John Schauer, who will role play to show us good ways to be compassionate and loving to our members and relatives with dementia. If enough of the congregation attends, we will be certified as dementia friendly. Come help Covenant become a dementia friendly church!
Come to the Table of Peace
Peace Offering Received Sunday, October 2
"Can God spread a table in the wilderness?" Psalm 78:19
Psalm 78 offers a song about God's "glorious deeds" and "the wonders" God has done. It stresses that God is continually and forever faithful to the people God has chosen. This is true, the psalmist writes, even though God's people forget. Miracle after miracle is recounted, God's presence and care throughout history are described, and the people still ask, "Can God spread a table in the wilderness?"
We live in divisive times. Our experience of political, social, or religious division can make our lives, our communities, and our world feel like a wilderness. The news reports of violent acts seem only to increase. We watch millions displaced by war, and hear of women and children battered and abused. We listen as messages of fear and hate, often based on race and ethnicity, grow louder and louder. Weapons crowd our streets, and tools created for destruction increase in their capacity each day.
Giving to the Peace & Global Witness Offering is one way we come to God's table of peace. Twenty-five percent of this offering remains with our congregation to build up peace in our community, 25% expands our witness throughout the region supporting ministries of peace and reconciliation in Presbyterian mid councils, and 50% supports the global witness to Christ's peace through the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program and the reconciliation work of Presbyterian World Mission.
Please give, as you are able, in gratitude to the God who spreads such a bountiful table of peace on Sunday, October 2nd.
