What If It Doesn't Have To Be So Hard?
Katie Kinnison Preaching

Maybe we get too serious sometimes. We forget to relax, to play, to revel in the joy and just surrender to the gift of being alive. 
            Religion has its rules and expectations. The Church has its anxiety about continuing to be and about how to be of use. But the call to be all the way alive -- perhaps this is simpler than we thought.
            Join us this Sunday as we read about Jesus turning water into wine, and we learn to revel in the ordinary.
Yours on the journey,
Katie

ANGST. Do you suffer from anxiety? Does your child? Partner? Learn how to cope and find hope. One could make the case that anxiety is the most prevalent 21st Century disease afflicting the United States – certainly it is doing its best to cripple our youth. As people of God and the body of Christ, we have important insights and practices within our theology and tradition that can help us manage the anxiety that affect us and our children. It is time to reclaim this knowledge and to begin to share it. It is time to come to the defense of our children. Youth and adults, join us for this important film and discussion...a film about anxiety, truth, coping and hope. Candid interviews with real teens about anxiety. Contact Katie Kinnison or Erin Wise.

2019 Per Capita is $35.75 Per Member
Each member of Covenant is also a member of the larger church, the Presbyterian Church USA. As such, it is part of our responsibility to support the work of the administrative bodies of the national church – the General Assembly, the Synod, and the Presbytery. We do this by making a per capita payment each January. The per capita for 2019 is $35.75 per member, for a total payment due of $21,093. This figure is based upon our church membership roll as of Dec. 31, 2017. We invite you to pay your share of the per capita so that this money does not need to come from this year’s budget. Your contribution will free up funds for other vital church programs that meet the spiritual needs of our congregation. Envelopes are on the welcome table.  Click here to securely give online.
