Worship Services: Sunday 9:00 & 11:00
Covenant Grove has Sunday worship services at 9:00 and 11:00am—outdoor and online. Worship is one of the most important habits we can have in life—it connects us with the Lord, reminds us of what is important, and gives us a great focus for the week. Our spiritual habits determine our spiritual health, and our spiritual health changes everything. Our Kids Ministry is currently through 1st grade, and adding classes for older ages as we move forward. Let’s be praying big prayers for our church and our world. We are in this together!
Our state guidelines have changed, and our county is back in the “purple” tier. But what hasn’t changed is that every Sunday our church will be worshiping Jesus. From day one of the pandemic, we have not missed a single service. Under the current guidelines, we will be meeting OUTSIDE and ONLINE—rain or shine—at 9:00 and 11:00am.
During the 9:00am service, the sermon and worship will be recorded inside and livestreamed outside. Bring your own chairs, and maybe a blanket, too! Seniors and those with special needs can go inside. During the 11:00am service, the sermon and worship will be fully outdoors. Kids Ministry will happen for both services through 1st
Weekly worship makes a big difference in life. We have heard story after story of people who have come back to church saying, “I really needed this in my life.” God is the fuel for our souls; there is no substitute. Whether you worship online or join us outside, make sure you stay rooted in God and connected in community. We are in this together, and God is working to make us stronger in this storm. God bless you!
Thanksgiving Eve Service
There is no denying that this has been a tough year. Yet there is still so much to be thankful for. Gratitude changes our perspectives and is an antidote to anxiety. When we walk with Jesus, we know that the sun is still shining behind the storm clouds; Christ is with us in the hurricane.
Covenant Grove will be a Thanksgiving Eve services at 6:00pm this year. The service will be online and outside—so bring your blankets! We will have Kids Ministry through 1st grade, and the older kids will join their families.
We hope you will join us for our services this year. Thanksgiving is always important, but especially this year we need to take the time to focus on God, change our perspectives, and grow in gratitude. God bless you!
Advent Sermon Series: The Christmas Candles
God’s light shines in the darkness, and in the greatest darkness, shining brightly only requires a candle. This Christmas season, we will be looking at the Candles of Christmas: hope, faith, joy, peace, and light. Each candle represents something special about Christmas and about Jesus—He is the light of the world, and He shines in the darkness.
This Christmas season, make a special resolution to focus on Christ. Take time with Him every day. Make it to worship services on the weekends. Don’t get so busy that you miss what He is trying to whisper to your soul. We hope you will join us every Sunday for this great sermon series, and we hope you will share it with others, too! This begins on November 29.
Church Devotional: Matthew
Matthew is the first book of the New Testament, and it emphasizes the Kingship of Jesus, the fulfillment of prophecy, and the rhythms of following Jesus (discipleship). Being a disciple of Christ is more than knowing something about Him—it is knowing Him, obeying Him, and getting your life on His mission.
Daily devotions are such an important habit. We have asked all our church leaders to read their Bibles daily, and we encourage everyone in our church to dig this root in their lives. Devotion are not homework but an invitation to have a conversation with God. The Lord speaks through His word—and He has a lot to say to us!
Pick up a devotional card (with checkboxes on it), follow along online (through our social media), or grab a booklet with devotional thoughts and space for journaling.
Jesus commanded His disciples to make disciples—and baptize them. What is baptism, and what does it mean? Well, those are the questions we will be answering during our Baptism Class—which is basically a baptism Bible study with Pastor Scott. We will cover what the Bible teaches about baptism, what it means, and the difference baptism makes in a believer’s life.
If you have felt the nudge from Jesus to get baptized, or if you are a follower of Christ and need to get baptized, or if you just have questions about baptism—come to our class! We need people to sign up ahead of time, and you can do that by noting on your Connect Card (the orange button on our website), or emailing the church (email@example.com).
The class is on Sunday, Dec 6 at 3:30pm. If that time doesn’t work for you, let us know and we will schedule another time for you to take this important step of faith.
Building Hope Capital Initiative Update
We are anchored in hope, and hope is one of the biggest values of our church. When we began our capital initiative in 2019, we had no idea that a pandemic would happen (who did?), but we knew there would be challenges. Hope shines in the storms. Our church family has continued to give to Building Hope, and we are giving updates on where we are at with construction, contributions, and the mission aspects of the project.
We will be calling on people to commit to prayer first because prayer is the plow, and it makes a huge difference; we have seen this time after time. We want to encourage those who have continued giving and invite those who don’t know about this project to jump in. God continues to grow our church; lives are being transformed by His hope, truth, and love. We will need more facility space in the future, and we are moving forward in HOPE, even in this storm, and we face the future with faith.
