TODD’S TAKE
Good morning and welcome to our worship service. If you are a guest with us this morning we welcome you and invite you to join in with us as we honor our creator and savior.
This morning is a special day here at Park Avenue that we call Covenant Sunday
. With a new year upon us, it’s good to remind ourselves of our covenant with God as members of His church, the body of Christ. We will recommit ourselves to these 7 covenant statements:
- We submit to the authority of Scripture in everything.
- We support and follow the leadership of the church.
- We pursue personal spiritual growth.
- We serve our church family and community.
- We are faithful stewards of our resources.
- We share our faith.
- We set our eyes on the return of Christ and our eternal home in heaven.
Today we will also introduce our theme for 2024—Peace
. We will distribute covenant stones to every family as a physical reminder of the peace that Jesus offers us as his disciples.
John 14:27 (NIV)
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
