This Week at Covenant Family Church

1.18.23

Hello brothers and sisters,

This Sunday I will preach on Genesis 12:10-20, which recounts Abram and Sarai’s sojourn in Egypt. The 10am lesson will be on the second chapter of the Westminster Confession of Faith, “Of God, and of the Holy Trinity.” The evening sermon will be on Hebrews 13:20-25, which concludes Hebrews. I also invite you to join us at 6:00 pm this evening for the Bible study at my house. We are studying Ephesians and also give time for singing and prayer.

Recordings from Last Sunday

Lesson: Of the Holy Scripture
For more on this topic, I taught a series on this chapter of the WCF a couple years ago, available here.

Sermon: Blessed and a Blessing (Genesis 11:10-12:9)

Evening Sermon: Worship, Fellowship, and Shepherding (Hebrews 13:15-19)

Outreach at the Lincoln County Fair
We hope to have a booth at the Lincoln County Fair as we have done previously (most recently in 2021) for outreach and evangelism. This year’s dates are Tuesday, July 11, 2023 – Saturday, July 15, 2023. The hours we would need to man the booth would be 4pm-10pm Tue-Fri (two shifts) and 12pm-10:30pm on Saturday (four shifts). We will be seeking to gauge interest over the next month or so to make sure we will be able to pull it off before we send in the registration, so let Bruce or I know if you are interested in helping.

Congregational Meeting
We will hold our annual congregational meeting after the worship service on January 29th. If we fail to meet a quorum, February 5th will be our backup date. In addition to our regular reports and approval of a budget, we will also hold a vote on the proposed revision of our constitution (let me know if you don’t have a copy yet).
