Please note the following schedule for Youth Group in March:
March 18—NO YOUTH GROUP (Fundraiser at Max & Erma’s)
April 1– NO YOUTH GROUP (Easter Sunday)
The theme for Lent 2018 is: RETURN to God through self-reflection, bible reading, prayer, worship and compassionate service. Children, Youth and Families are invited to join our church family every Wednesday beginning February 21 for a “Modified Potluck Dinner” in Knox Hall. This is going to be a donation-only meal,and we ask that you bring an appetizer, side dish, beverage, or dessert to share with your brothers & sisters if you are able. Then, on Wednesdays now to March 21 there will be activities for children, youth and families. Children and Youth will explore the stories of the Old Testament that they will hear the following Sunday during worship through art, storytelling, experiment and reflection. Adults will have their time together as they do the same with different activities and reflection. Make Wednesdays during Lent a weekly family event
Fundraiser at Max & Erma’s on March 18 for our Covenant Youth: The Youth of the church are headed to North Carolina and Tennessee this Summer for a P.C.(USA) conference.

Children’s Book Sale: Since the beginning of the Faith Formation and Covenant Preschool year, the children of the church have been exploring the Spark! Bible Series from Sparkhouse. The Spark!

First Covenant is hosting a Sparkhouse Book Fair now through March 11, daily from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., in the Covenant Community Art Gallery, located near the church office.
