Have Church at Home

February 15 2015 at 9:01 am 4 Comments

Covenant Life Family,

Because the police are encouraging people to stay off the roads we’ve decided to cancel our service today. With the wind and icy conditions, we don’t want anyone to risk getting hurt.

Even if we don’t gather at a building we can still have church! Let me encourage you to set aside time by yourself or with your family to sing, pray and read God’s word. Our text today was 2 Chronicles 20 and the story of how God rescued Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah. Read that chapter and reflect on/discuss what it teaches about reliance on God.

Today we were also teaching a song that’s been a favorite of mine recently. It’s called “You Make Me Brave.” Listen to it in the video below. God’s great love for us gives us courage—courage to obey him and step out into the waves. Where is God calling you to step out in faith? What a wonderful truth that Jesus has made a way for us to enter into God’s presence.

Finally, please take time to pray for prayer. Sounds funny, but we want to grow as a church in being people who, like Jehoshaphat, set our face to seek the Lord. We’re kicking off 50 Days of Prayer this week. Please pray for yourself and the rest of the church that we will humbly seek the Lord and acknowledge that He alone is our salvation and hope.

Tonight’s Events Cancelled

January 24 2014 at 3:58 pm 0 Comments

Update at 4:50 p.m: For all intents and purposes the church building is closed for tonight due to restricted access to Muncaster Mill Road.

Thanks again for praying for the individuals involved in the accident and their families.

Due to an accident in front of the church this afternoon involving two vehicles and several pedestrians, Muncaster Mill Road is closed between Shady Grove and Woodfield Roads until roughly 7 p.m. tonight. People already on site at the church or school may exit the church northbound toward Woodfield Road, but there’s no inbound access.

All evening events have been cancelled, including the One Meeting.

Please be praying for God’s mercy, peace and healing for all involved in the accident.
