Worship in the Big Tent
Worship Services: Sunday 9:00 & 11:00
We have a tent that can fit over 100 people for outdoor worship! This allows us to meet safely outdoors (with sides open for ventilation) while still following the biblical mandate to worship our Savior. Join us each week online or in-person in the Big Tent. We will have heaters, but bring a blanket and a heart ready for worship. Invite others to join you as well for a truly unique worship experience. It is time for a revival!
Over the last few months, we have worshiped inside, online, and outside—in the smoke, rain, heat, and cold. No matter what, we will have worship services because worship is vital to our spiritual health. God is fuel for our souls, and we are called to worship together.
Supply Lines of Support
This Sunday, Pastor Scott will wrap up our sermon series on support, talking about getting support in the area of Tasks and Systems. We need all types of support in our lives, but we often neglect the area of systems. People in this area tend to give direct solutions and advice, based on their own experience in the area. With these people in our corner, we can quickly solve problems—and life promises to give us plenty of those!
Support was the topic of Pastor Scott’s doctoral dissertation. Support is so important. Unfortunately, many of us live without enough support in our lives, and we only reach out for support when we are in crisis. God’s word shows us a better way for our lives. We all need support, and the last year has shown us the absolute importance of “supply lines” of support in our lives.
Our world needs hope. God’s hope is our anchor in the storms, giving us unity in a divided world. Our church loves to teach on and live out God’s hope because it makes a huge difference in our lives. Hope shines through our actions and attitudes, and with the hope of Jesus we can face the future with faith. Through the sunshine and the storms, we live like we are loved by the Lord. In the month of March, we will again be teaching on hope, teaching how to “soar like eagles,” even when life seems to be falling apart. We will look at Isaiah, Nehemiah, and Paul. This will be a powerful and very applicable sermon series! Please join us every week and invite others!
Building Hope is the name of our capital initiative, an “above and beyond” offering that we are raising to expand God’s mission at our church. The mission is to transform people’s lives with Jesus. The money we raise through Building Hope is going to three areas: facilities, church planting, and missions. We will share updated construction plans, giving levels, and possibilities for church planting in the near future. God is doing big things—even in the pandemic! Our church has continued to give sacrificially, and we are excited to give the updates. We will give everyone a chance to jump into this special giving, as well. As always, begin with prayer. Be praying for all that God is doing in this incredible time.
Our membership class is on Sunday, March 7, from 2:00-5:00pm. It will be held at the church. We provide childcare if needed, as well as some snacks, so let us know in advance if you can make it. This is a time to learn more about the history and mission of our church, what we believe and why it matters, and the commitments we ask members to make. This is a solid class led by Pastor Scott, and we hope you can come!
Every year we have people ask, “Why should I become a member?” Our world is full of memberships (Netflix, Costco, the gym, etc) because relationships are stronger when we commit to each other. That commitment is part of membership, in addition to a declaration that you agree with the beliefs of our larger church. Our beliefs matter, and membership matters. We are a church family (see Eph 5:20), and like any family, it makes a big difference to say, “I am a member of this family.” If you are ready to learn more, we invite you to come to our Membership Class.
All Church Meeting
Twice a year, Covenant Grove Church comes together to do the business of the church together. We are a church family, and every family needs times to cover these important items, including celebration, finances, new members, and voting people into positions. Although we are covering business, this is a time to give thanks to God for helping our church through a very tough year. We have stayed focused on Jesus, living out His mission, and supporting people.
The All Church Meeting will be on Sunday, February 28th, at 1:30pm, on Zoom. An email link has been sent out. If you need this link, please email the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org). We ask that all church members attend, and this meeting is open for anyone.
