Holy Week at Covenant The four Gospels devote somewhere between a quarter and half of their texts to the seven days between Palm Sunday and Easter, and focus especially on Thursday, Friday and Easter Sunday. Christians believe that the redemption of the world pivots precisely on these days and events. Everyone is welcome to worship with us for these Holy Week gatherings, which begin at 7 PM each evening and run for about 60 minutes. Maundy Thursday, April 13 at…
Maundy Thursday April 13 at 7 PM “Maundy” derives from the Latin mandatum, a commandment or mandate. On this evening we remember Jesus’ new commandment (“Love one another as I have loved you”) and his initiation of the new covenant, celebrated in communion/eucharist.
Good Friday April 14 at 7 PM The heart of the Good News is that “The Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3) – this is what makes the terrible events of the crucifixion “good.” Our service focuses on the seven “words” Jesus spoke from the cross: a different member of our community will offer a brief reflection on each word.

Please be praying during the day for shalom to settle over the places of protest and the various protesters. Shalom is a biblical concept that embraces both justice and peace. Pray for wisdom, sound…
Join Pastor Zack at the church for a weekly Bible study, Thursdays from 7-8 PM at the church. Come early at 6:15 PM with a bring-your-own dinner to hang out and get to know other members of Covenant. Currently the group is studying the book of Matthew, one of four “Gospels” in the New Testament. Come ready to dig into the text, explore what God might be saying to us, and leave with (maybe!) more questions than answers.
