This Week at Covenant Family Church


Hello brothers and sisters,

This Sunday I will preach on Genesis 34, “Outrage and Slaughter at Shechem.” The 10:00 am lesson will be on the second part of chapter 28 of the Westminster Confession of Faith, “Of Baptism.” The evening service will be held at the Stahl home at 7:00 pm, with a sermon on John 12:12-33, “The Triumphal Entry.”

Midweek Meeting

On Wednesday evenings we have our midweek meeting at the Bringe home at 6:00 pm, for singing, Bible study, and prayer. This Wednesday we began a study of the Lord’s Prayer, using as an outline questions 100-107 of the Shorter Catechism. Next Wednesday we will cover the preface of the prayer and question 100 of the Shorter Catechism.

Blog Post

Infant Baptism
In this blog post I write about infant baptism and the significance of baptism generally. “Baptism has the same significance for children as it does for adults, and its use endures throughout our lives.”
