New Location – Orchard Elementary
1800 Wisdom Way, Modesto
We will be having our first ever Sunday with two services, at 9:00 and 10:45am. We will also be having a huge Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. We will be talking about Hope, and how we all need God’s hope for life. This is a great day to invite others! Join us as we pray and hand out door hangers to our neighborhood. You can grab door hangers from Aaron Crumrine on Sunday. Also, there is no Potluck on Easter Sunday, just a heads up!
We have an accepted offer on property with a building for our church. This is HUGE news for our church plant!!!
We still have to get our inspections done, and need congregational and denominational approval. Also, there are important questions and concerns that people will have that need to be addressed. We will be having an All Church Meeting very soon to discuss all of these things. And next Sunday in service we will have our church chair give an update, too.
God is not giving us property for our church. God is giving our church property for HIS MISSION. God doesn’t want us to have property more than He wants to have US. We are not buying a church – WE ARE THE CHURCH. The property and facilities are only resources to serve Jesus, change lives with Him, and do great ministry. We will continue to focus on the mission He has given us – to love Him and love people and never stop reaching out.
We are His church. We will be praying and seeking to raise $120,000 for the down payment (by the beginning of June). We will need even more money to make some improvements. Pray for us, and consider supporting us as we follow Jesus.
Thank you for being on this adventure with Covenant Grove Church!!
Good Friday Service
The cross is so many things: it is pain and healing; defeat and victory; death and life. It is also a declaration of God’s love for us and the hope and strength that we have through Christ overcoming sin and death. Join on us on April 3rd, 7pm at Orchard Elementary and experience all that Good Friday brings. (Childcare provided up through 5th grade)
