A HEART-FOCUSED STUDY ON WORSHIP
During this six-week Bible study, youth will be challenged to “go extreme” in their worship of God. But it’s not their body they’ll push to the max. Instead, they’ll stretch their soul. If they accept this challenge, they’ll condition their heart and mind in ways they might never have thought possible. As a result, they’ll have the privilege of knowing the God of the Universe and worshipping him more intimately and powerfully than they ever imagined!
This relational resource will help youth and youth leaders move past the idea of worship as just “singing and praying” and actually connect with God by using practical, daily exercises in praise that encourage readers to apply what they’re learning about worship. It also instructs youth in the biblical standards of why and how they should praise God.

We would like to have as many people as possible experience the Feast, a spiritual life experience for the whole intergenerational, multi- ethnic Covenant Family (www.covchurch.org/feast).
Consider this: we invest in things all the time. We invest in the latest technology, education, causes we believe in, relationships, learning and mastering new challenges. As a church we invest in our community, missions, compassion, mercy, and justice. We invest in discipleship by mentoring, teaching, and caring for others. We invest in the spiritual walks of children, youth and adults.
As a church, please consider investing in a child, a youth, a young adult, a couple, a young family or a retiree. Invest in their faith walk and encourage them in their journey by sending them to the Feast. The Feast is a unique opportunity to do life together and experience the best of who God has made us to be… and embody the Kingdom of God!
In an effort to make these gatherings more accessible, we’ve made some adjustments to registration costs; keep reading! Continue Reading »

Join the communities of Resurrection, Grace, and Ravenswood Covenant Churches and the Church around the world as we celebrate the heart of our faith and the Christian year. The liturgies of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil are a three-in-one liturgy. We mark the Three Days not as a way to go back in time but to let the spiritual power of death and resurrection be unleashed for us today. With Christ, we “pass over” from darkness to light, from bondage to freedom, from death to life.

Today is Ash Wednesday and as I was preparing to enter this Lenten season I began reflecting on ‘Last Lent’. As part of the Christian Ethics course I was enrolled in Spring of 2010 we were required to complete a ‘Lenten Discipline’. I’m a nerd, so I still have the syllabus. The assignment was to: Continue Reading »
