Confirmation in the United Methodist Church is a time of intentional preparation giving teens the opportunity to learn the basic tenants of our faith and how to live them out.

The Adult Short Course continues its exploration of this theme through November 19 with Faith: Grounded in the Scriptures.

In our kitchen, we have a large calendar hanging on the wall, and it sits in a wooden frame, and it was given to us by my grandmother’s sister. This calendar is significant because she buys the wooden frames for a family when they move into their home or right after they get married.

Through our White Tag Christmas Giving ministry, you have opened your hearts to bring joy to children who might not otherwise receive it.

Thanks to your love, caring, and generosity, many people in need will recieve additional blessings this winter.

This is 34th year that Covenant church has participated in the Appalachia Service Project. In impressive fact in and of itself. And before I go any further, I would like to thank the people of Covenant church and the surrounding communities for your unending and generous support, without which ASP could never have thrived as it has. Yes, every summer for the past 34 years, volunteers from Covenant and our community have ventured into Central Appalachia to, as you often hear us say, make homes warmer safer and drier. Each summer we spend a week helping to repair homes for families who live there. We continue this effort each year because the need persists.

Here's the question: how can we adequately describe what occurred during the worship service last Sunday with our guest composer, Craig Courtney? And the answer is: it's not possible.

Last Sunday, our team of volunteers sat in the sanctuary of Asbury United Methodist Church in Harrisonburg Virginia for their 8:30 am worship service.  Their associate Pastor, Bob Talbott, started on his sermon “A Different kind of Pep Talk” with scripture readings which included Matthew 10:verse 16.  “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” As he repeated the first part, “I am sending you out like sheep...”, a tingling shot up and down my spine.  I was amazed.  Almost in disbelief.  I felt like yelling “This is awesome!”.
