News and Upcoming Events
Covenant Kids Congo: Many thanks to all who have made donations and pledges to help us sponsor children in the Democratic Republic of Congo. DR Congo is one of the poorest nations on earth. But, with the help of the Covenant Church in Congo and World Vision, we will be making a huge difference in the lives of children in Congo. We are sponsoring 5 children from our church, and more than 3,000 children have already been sponsored in Covenant churches throughout the US and Canada! That is fantastic! Through your generosity children, families and the whole community will be blessed. They will have clean water, medical care, and a reliable food supply, along with educational and economic opportunities. Did you know that the Covenant Church in Congo is larger than the Covenant Church in the US? It is a joy and a blessing to be able to help our brothers and sisters in the Lord. Thank you!

Women Bible Study
Come to church on Tuesdays, starting June 18,2013 at 7:00pm. We will be studying "The Story" Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the clear, accessible text of the NIV Bible, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel.
And like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption—and this story’s true! From the foreword by Max Lucado and Randy Frazee:
"This book tells the grandest, most compelling story of all time: the story of a true God who loves his children, who established for them a way of salvation and provided a route to eternity. Each story in these 31 chapters reveals the God of grace—the God who speaks; the God who acts; the God who listens; the God whose love for his people culminated in his sacrifice of Jesus, his only Son, to atone for the sins of humanity." Come Join Us!
