Charles Swann, Pastor-Teacher

Sunday August 20, 2017


We will be sharing the Lord’s Supper on Sunday August 20th at 10 AM.


Coming in September: DVD Series by Paul Tripp on “Shepherding A Child’s Heart.” See signup sheet.


Covenant Baptist Church is governed by a plurality of Elders, and it is our desire that we have more Elders than we currently have.  (Pastor Charles Swann and Alton Crapps are current Elders). We are currently waiting on the Lord to raise up more Elders in the Church, and until that time we have decided to have Deacon Colonel Rogers and Deacon Burt Lanier to function as Lay Leaders within the Elder body of this Church. That means that they will be involved with the Elders of the church in Shepherding and Government of the Church.  Colonel and Burt will not need to be at every Elder mtg. but will be made aware of all that is discussed at an Elders meeting via that minutes of that Meeting. We ask you to pray for these men as they seek the wisdom of God in Shepherding the body of Christ here at Covenant. Also please pray for God to raise up Godly men who love Christ and His Word and have a desire for the Office of Elder. (I Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9)


Some families have expressed a desire to buy a pew and if so, the pew will cost $875. Please make sure you indicate that on your check or envelope.  Just a nice note of clarification, we will not be placing names of anyone's family members on the pews. These are to be given simply in honor of Christ.


Make sure you know where your children are at all times and please keep them out of the dangerous areas around the construction site, particularly on the side of the building that cars do not park.


We need a person or family who would like to take the place on the ‘Church Volunteer Cleaning List’ of a family who has moved to another church. This comes around about once every six weeks. If interested please see or contact Alton.


If you would like to become a member of Covenant Baptist Church please see the Pastor, Charles Swann or Elder Alton Crapps. We would love to talk to you about membership.


If you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior for the forgiveness of sins, please make sure you talk to the pastor or one of our Elders or Deacons. We would love to show you in the Word of God what the Bible says about becoming a Christian.
