All of you who give of your time and talents to this church family: we thank you! During Sunday morning services this Sunday, May 29th, we’ll be honoring our ministry volunteers. If you don’t have a place to serve, now is a great time to consider what area is best for you! Our volunteers serve based on a one-year commitment. Use this Celebration to consider what place God has set aside for you. Know that service blesses God and yourself, as well as your church family.
LoC: year long commitment, fewer ministries (evangelism), relationship and discipleship focus. Sign up!
God at the Movies
Summer is coming. Some of the best movies of the year are being released! You know what that means: God at the Movies is coming back! Join us Sundays in June for theological discussion around themes in today’s new movies. And INVITE others, too! We will be seeing screenings together at Regal starting this Sunday, May 29th, after 4pm. First up: X-Men: Apocalypse with Youth Pastor Joe Eldridge.
Memorial Day and Grads
This week we remember those that have served in our country’s armed forces and have given their lives to protect our families’ freedom. We also acknowledge the sacrifice their families make by sending our troops away from them. This season of remembrance is also a time of celebration! Our middle school, high school, and college students are in a season of graduation! As these stages in life pass by, we celebrate their accomplishments and the hard work it took to get here.
Baptism is a public declaration of your faith in Jesus, just like our Confirmation students did last week! On Sunday June 5th, we are offering a Baptism class at 2pm. Our next set of Baptisms will be on Father’s Day. Come on by if you are considering baptism and want to learn more.
What screams summertime more than softball? Covenant Grove is getting together a co-ed softball team! The cost is $50, contact Joel Balam 209-872-8687 or Amanda Deigan 209-345-5341 to get signed up.
A lot of fun was had and a lot of relationships were built! Last Sunday we had The Events! Events were hosted at a bunch of different places with a variety of activities. We had over 120 people sign up – way to go Covenant Grove! Fellowship on Sunday is so important but these moments of fun and friendship are invaluable. We hope everyone had a great time and got to know someone a little better! Mark your calendars for July 10, and the event called One Day, an entire Sunday together with worship, learning, fun, and food!
