THIS WEEK at CPC July 28 – Aug 3

Auburn University

Move-in ManiaJust one day remains for you to sign up to represent Christ and Covenant Church to Auburn freshmen as you offer to help them move into their dormitory. Covenant’s Move-in Mania Teams will be assigned to one of the freshman dormitories to help new students move into their rooms.

You have two opportunities to serve: Saturday, August 9 or Wednesday, August 13 from 7:30 – 10:30 AM.  Sign up by Tuesday, July 29.

Friends of Internationals

New International students are arriving now, and more students than ever are expected. Many come with a great desire to be friends with an American. Visiting a warm, loving American home for a home cooked meal is a wonderful break from homesickness and culture shock for new students. We are short about 100 matches based on the past three years. They have their own apartment and speak English, but no car, so you need to pick them up. Invite them to do something with you at least monthly. Aug 9 is application deadline and optional training at AUMC.  Registration forms may be picked up from the hallway display at Covenant.

Congratulations!

Congratulations to parents, Dan & Kari Caldwell, in the birth of baby William, Thursday, July 24th.

If you would like to take them a meal visit TakeThemAMeal.com and locate the schedule by recipient last name (Caldwell) and password (Caldwell).

The Nursery:

It’s the Gospel!

Paul exhorts the Church at Corinth that the smallest and most easily overlooked member of the church should receive greatest honor. So, the gospel turns our natural way of thinking upside down. Honor our youngest members and free their parents to worship!! Sign up to serve in the Covenant nursery. Contact Shea Tillman at 444.2926.
