From Your Pastor, August 2011

Dear Friends in Christ,

With the month of August on us we will see important things come our way.  One is the Saluda Association EPIC Conference, Saturday August 6th from 8 am to 12:30 pm at Covenant Baptist Church. It will prove to be invaluable to our church fellowship.  The training provided at this conference will bless our leaders and members.  Please do what you can to plan to attend this event for your personal walk with the Lord as well as for the benefit of our church.  See the newsletter and bulletins for the types of conferences offered.

Can you believe that the beginning of school is in August?  Pray for our children and youth as they prepare to return to the classroom.  We have great students and teachers in our church fellowship and they need you to lift them up to the Lord.

Even though our Lay Renewal Weekend is not in August but in September, please prepare to be involved by placing on your calendar this special event at our church. God calls us to be equipped to do the work of the Lord in the body of Christ but we all need to know our place of service and ministry.  That is the focus of this weekend.  Pray that when you are asked to service in some area to help prepare for this weekend that you will say “yes.”

Bless you all for your faithfulness to the Lord and His church through your attendance and your giving through your tithes and offerings.
