Philippians. Bill Mills, who is our brother in Christ and partner in the ministry of the gospel, led Covenant Community Church in a gospel conference today. Bill leads the congregation through a three session study of the letter of Paul to the Philippians. Paul continues throughout the letter to point to the supreme worth of Jesus to be the bearer of the Good News! Listen to all three sessions below.
Psalm 112. This psalm calls it singers to praise the Lord for the way that He blesses His family. What are these blessings? The psalmist lists many of the blessings that comes from being a part of the family. Our sermon is followed with a testimony and baptism!
Luke 15. We take a break from the Psalms again today to focus on three of parables shared by Jesus in the Gospel according to Luke. Jesus was very aware of the audiences that his words were being spoken too- including sinners, pharisees, and the readers of His word today.
Psalm 23. David came from a family of shepherds, and was a shepherd himself for a time. As he reflects on his time as a shepherd and the relationships between he and his sheep, he is reminded of how much the Lord is like a shepherd to himself and those who trust in Him.
Psalm 32. David pens this psalm to rejoice in the forgiveness that he has experienced. He shares his exclamation about forgiveness, his experience with the weight of his sin, and then instructs us in the way that we should go when faced with our own burden of sin.
Isaiah 7:1-17. Phil and Sara Martin visit us again this morning as they continue to prep for their mission to China. Phil shares a message from Isaiah 7. Ahaz gives us an example of how not to trust God in a time of fear, but God uses this moment in history to prove His faithfulness.
Psalm 121. Named a song of ascents, this psalm would have been sung by Israelites as an encouragement as they journeyed to Jerusalem to celebrate a festival or worship at the temple. Their travels had many different threats along the way. Psalm 121 would have reminded them of the Lord’s care for them.
Psalm 96. The psalmist commands God’s people to worship the Lord and lays out through this psalm the basic fundamentals of how that worship is acted out in our lives both internally and externally. God’s people are commanded to worship with their heart, mind, soul, and strength.
2 Timothy. In light of the recent events of unrest taking place in the nation, we take a break from our study on the psalms to take a look at 2 Timothy. We are given the setting in which the letter was written, then we read through the letter, and are given application questions to help us think through how we, as Christians, should respond to not only these currents events but all suffering.
Psalm 90. Perhaps the oldest psalm in the Psalter as it was penned by the prophet Moses. In this psalm we get to witness a prayer of Moses starting with a meditation of God’s greatness and concluding with a request for God to be active in His nation’s endeavors.

Psalm 18. King David had many stories to share. In today’s psalm David uses a chapter of his life to help his readers and listeners understand how God used David’s battles in his life to strengthen their relationship with one another. How has God been strengthening your relationship with Him?
Psalm 36. It is easy for us to recognize the wickedness that happens in the world today. The psalmist, King David, uses the wickedness of those who belong to the world as a backdrop to reveal the goodness of God and his steadfast love. The light of the glory of God will always engulf the darkness of the wicked.
Psalms 42 & 43. The author of these Psalms is obviously at turmoil within himself and he gives witness to this turmoil through his song. His soul is thirsting for God and this is causing confusion within his thoughts and emotions. This gives light to an instructive wrestling match within the psalmist.
Psalm 62. There are many things in this world that are competing for our trust. Men, wealth, emotions, our own selves, and many more. None of these things come close to outweighing the eternal hope and salvation offered by God. He alone is a sure Rock, Fortress, Refuge for His people.
We take a break from the psalms today to hear a message that was placed on Eric’s heart during his week in the Ukraine. Before we can “Go and make disciples” we must know the command giver. Eric helps us to focus on that today and shares his experience away.
Psalm 2. In today’s psalm David uses an episode in his life to depict how God’s plan was working in his present setting and, whether David knew it or not, the psalm also sheds light on a pattern of God’s plan that continued into the time of Jesus’ incarnation and will be continued in His second coming.
Psalm 73. What is it that causes a man to stumble or slip? More often than not, it happens when he takes his focus off of the path that he is walking on. The psalmist, Asaph, walks us through how he had taken his focus off of the Lord and that had almost caused him to stumble. He was able to regain his focus when he entered the sanctuary of God.
Psalm 29. The Lord will use his voice to speak to His people in many different ways. Today’s Psalm takes a rich look into how the voice of the Lord directs and controls a mighty thunderstorm. The storm causes David to worship the Lord in humble adoration.
1 Samuel 17 The Lord had plans for our service today as we break from the Psalms to get a reminder that He is supplying strength to His people in their times of fear and need. Testimonies of facing specific fears are shared by our brother and sister.
