Leadership Notes [Feb 28, 2019]


Last Sunday, I optimistically declared that Spring was in the air. Do I have snow on my face, or what?


Anyway, my stupid speculating aside, there is something far better in the air. Long-range planning. As we approach the one year anniversary of God's gracious gift of a permanent home for Covenant Church, we are ready to turn a corner in where He is leading us. We have always been about God's timing. We have never felt a need to rush our plans or ideas, because we don't care about our plans or ideas. We only care about God's plans and His timing. So we listen. We pray. We talk to each other. And then we step out in faith.

That's what we're doing now. We are closer to announcing a Capital Repairs/Maintenance Fund, followed by a Capital Improvements Fund. Both funds will have concrete goals and guidelines. What I love so much about the leadership of Covenant Church is the integrity with which they approach these tasks. Both our Elder Board {Session} and our Vision Team know the imperative of maintaining your trust in the pursuit of careful planning for our financial future. We will communicate this direction as clearly and simply as possible.


In the meantime, start thinking and praying about including Covenant Church in your estate planning. As more concrete plans develop, we will make sure we are all on the same page. I am excited to see what's next in God's plan for us!


Thank you for your generosity, prayers, and kindnesses as we move forward in this great adventure of faith.


In the Love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,

Richard
