Walking A Sacred Path: The Labyrinth During Holy Week
The labyrinth will be available for walking at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, 401 S. Owen Drive, during Holy Week, April 17, 18, and 19. You are invited to share in this ancient Christian experience. The labyrinth is a canvas replica of the stone labyrinth laid into the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France, built at the beginning of the 13th century. The experience of walking the winding, continuous path provides an opportunity for prayer and meditation. It is peaceful! Schedule to walk the labyrinth in the Queen of Peace Auditorium (which is located in the basement of the church) during Holy Week. Click to view the 2014 labyrinth brochure.
Join together for another all-church Potluck gathering on Sunday, April 27th, the week after Easter, again after the second service, in Bradfield Hall. This one will feature a Special Program, "Broadway Act 3: 50's to the Present" by Al Anderson. This will be a one hour long performance-lecture-interactive program, and should have appeal for all ages. See the poster on the Life At Covenant bulletin board in the narthex. Meanwhile, plan to share wonderful food and fellowship again (the recent one was a big hit!). This time we are trying something new and different, NO SIGN-UP! Just show up with a dish to pass and plan on enjoying yourself.
Clothing Drive To Support
Local Area Low Income Families May 3-18
Once again, Covenant members have an opportunity to share with local area low-income individuals and families through a clothing drive in support of the Community Action Coalition ("CAC"). As you sort through your clothes and accessories with the change of seasons, please set aside any gently used items you want to recycle. The collection bins for the clothing drive will be available at Covenant starting Saturday, May 3 through Sunday, May 18th. Click here for more information.
Wiffle Ball Event on Saturday, May 17
Mark your calendars! All families are invited to an afternoon of wiffle ball, sharing a meal and fellowship. Look for more information in The Caravan, bulletins and on the website.
Sunday School Festival on Sunday, May 18
Come celebrate Covenant children, teachers and Sunday School. This celebration includes tables of Sunday School class displays; the 4th & 5th Grade Praise Puppets; Sunday School children singing; donuts and other surprises.
Save The Date!
Save the date for a Potluck Picnic in the Park on Sunday, June 29th, at Rennebohm Park. Kids' activities, games for all ages, and of course good food and fellowship to continue our quarterly potlucks.
Calling All PresbyWheelians!
This year, we are looking to build on last year's success and would like to double (or more!) the number of riders by expanding our team to include riders from Presbyterian churches throughout Region IV of the John Knox Presbytery. Not only is this event a critical fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club, but also it is a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and mission. And it's incredibly fun! Participants will gather at Edgewood College in the morning of Saturday, July 19, and depart on rides of 8, 25, or 50 miles. It is a ride, not a race, and is supported along the route with plenty of aid stations and volunteers. After the ride, there is a wonderful celebration on the Edgewood lawn, with live music, free Culver's ice cream, food provided by Metcalfe's, and drinks from Capital Brewery.
