Wish Mary Ircink Well in Her New Adventures on Sunday, August 24
After 13 years of faithful ministry at Covenant, Parish Nurse Mary Ircink has prayerfully decided that it is time for her to leave Covenant, giving her more time with her family. Over the years, Mary has blessed dozens of Covenant families with her Parish Nurse ministry. She has let God's love be at work in her life through her compassion and her helpfulness, and we are deeply grateful for all that she has done. Her last Sunday will be August 24, and we will give thanks to God for her on that date with a reception of celebration and thanksgiving in Bradfield Hall immediately following worship. Notes and cards of personal expressions are welcomed on that day. If you wish to contribute toward a gift, please contact Deb Cohn of the Personnel Committee. Please join us on August 24th to wish her Godspeed in her new adventures & journeys!

"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!
