NEW MINISTRY LAUNCH!
We are excited to announce that a new ministry that has been in the works is now ready to launch!  Our church will be offering a variety of creative and encouraging children’s events under the program name This Little Light.  Please help us spread the word about our weekday and weekend events, some of which our youth group will be helping to plan and lead.  We will offer arts classes, science events, play date meet ups, and will even be orchestrating a theatrical production of the children’s book Put Me in the Zoo on Saturday, April 10th.  We would love for the Christ Covenant Church family to share your outreach ideas and sign up to lend a hand at our events. God is moving and we are excited to have you involved. Please see Stacy Ashworth to get plugged in!

HUMAN SEXUALITY AND THE CHURCH: FEBRUARY 29TH

Christ Covenant Church will be hosting the second installment of “Human Sexuality and the Church:  Engaging the LGBTQ+ Community” on Saturday, February 29th, from 10am to 2pm (light lunch provided).  In October, we addressed some of the Biblical and theological issues surrounding this topic. We want to continue the discussion by addressing some of the personal, pastoral, and congregational care concerns.  Our panel, this time, will include Rev. Dr. Amanda Olson, pastor at Grace Evangelical Covenant Church in Chicago; our own Greg Jao, with InterVarsity; and myself. The format, this time around, will be slightly different.  We will be including small group discussion and more opportunity for questions. Speaking of which: If you are interested in attending, please talk with me or e-mail me what you would like to get out of this workshop, as well as specific questions you would like addressed.  Hope to see you there! — Pastor Ken
