This Week at Covenant Family Church


Hello brothers and sisters,

My family and I are back in town and this Sunday I will preach on Genesis 24:1-28, “A Wife for Isaac.” The 10:00 am lesson will be on chapter 18 of the Westminster Confession of Faith, “Of the Assurance of Grace and Salvation.” The evening service will be held at the Stahl home at 7:00 pm, with a sermon on John 6:35-51, “Taught By God.”

General Assembly

You can be in prayer for the 89th General Assembly of the OPC, which will be held next week at Trinity Christian College, Palos Heights, IL (June 7-13). This annual assembly consists of about 150 ministers and ruling elders, each of the 17 presbyteries of the OPC sending a certain amount of commissioners based on their size. At this link you can find more information about the OPC General Assembly, including minutes of and special reports to previous assemblies. There will be a daily report on the assembly on the OPC website, and it looks like Rev. Jim Stevenson (@RevJimOPC) will also be tweeting some updates from the assembly.

Blog Post

Who Is the Holy Spirit?
Since last Sunday was fifty days since Easter, I thought I would be a good time to reshare this blog post on the Holy Spirit, who descended on the disciples fifty days after Christ’s resurrection on Pentecost.
