Celebrate New Day's Leadership on July 27
They say there's a time for every purpose under heaven. For Michael Fitch, this past year was a time to provide excellent leadership to our New Day worship service ensemble, and next year is a time to concentrate on finishing his doctoral degree at the University. We'll celebrate Michael's gift to our church on July 27, his last Sunday with us.

Join Pastor Charlie Berthoud for a time of informal conversation about being a Christian in the world today, as you enjoy your favorite beverage and something to eat at a nearby restaurant. We will talk about what is most important (and what is not so important) in Christian belief and practice. Martin Thielen's engaging book, What's the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian? will provide food for thought. We'll have a chance to share various opinions in an environment of trust and respect, as we enjoy our favorite brews. Copies of the book are available for $10. Please e-mail Mary Kieta in the church office or Pastor Charlie, so we can plan accordingly. Come to one session or attend all three and bring a friend.

Join the Souls of Praise Liturgical Dance Group
Liturgical dance is a creative enhancement of the worship experience as dancers respond to sacred or religious hymns and music. Covenant's own Souls of Praise Liturgical Dance Group debuted on Pentecost Sunday, moving like the wind to "As the Wind" Song from the Glory to God Presbyterian Hymnal. All 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade girls are invited to be part of this worship experience as we continue to find new ways to enrich worship at Covenant. Contact Molly Peterson to join the Souls of Praise group.

"Remember, Celebrate, Dream!"

Mark your calendars & join the kick-off celebration of Covenant's 60th Anniversary!

Join the fun on September 7 as we gather immediately following the 9:30am worship service (the last Sunday of the summer schedule).
We plan to leave the sanctuary together and circle outside of the church singing songs and celebrating the presence of God's Spirit at work through the past, present and future of Covenant. The kick-off event will begin 60 days of celebrating. Stay tuned for details about "60" themed activities...

As part of our 60-day celebration, on October 4th we will be holding a special night of fun at the "All Church Talent Show." Engage your creativity and think of an act to share with the Church sign-ups for acts will begin in August.

The closing service for the anniversary celebration will be held Sunday, November 16th. We hope to have a special presentation and worship service that highlights Covenant's 60-year journey and launches us into the next 60... and beyond!
