PRA•X•IS: tHE EXPERIMENT
September 9, 2018 - June 9, 2019
This year we invite our congregation to commit to five spiritual practices using specific tools over the course of a year, and to evaluate how those practices affect the spiritual journey. If we commit to these practices, our relationships with Jesus Christ and with one another will be radically and eternally transformed.
HYPOTHESIS & METHODOLOGY
An Overview of the five practices this year, contained within the acronym PRA•X•IS:
Pray for the entire world, Read through the entire Word, Add to the community, X is not a practice but a reminder (The Greek letter Chi, or X, represents Christ. These practices are only meaningful if Jesus is at the center of each of them), Invest in the Kingdom, and Send yourself to the nations.
a new twist on old school
Summer Sermon Series 2018: We’re going way back to our childhood, and all those crazy Old Testament stories you learned in Sunday School as a kid. But are they really just children’s stories?
How often do we hear God’s voice and simply not realize who is speaking? How often do we really listen for Him?
Have you ever simply wished that you could start over? There is something fundamental about the desire for a fresh start, for a new beginning.

We must be different to make a difference.

Christian missions and refugees
Covenant Community Presbyterian Church hosted a weekend discussion of the refugee crises around the world and the call of the Church to have an impact. Our speaker was Ross Wood.

In/Different - The Love Apology
Different Series 3: The most distinct component of the early church was also its most powerful argument for the validity of the gospel - the church's extraordinary capacity to love. In loving our Lord, our church, our neighbor, and our enemy, we live our most important difference.
Thank God It's Monday
Different Series 2: Our work should be one of the most sacred and spiritual parts of our lives. How do Christians approach their jobs? Do we work different?
A Generous Marriage
Different Series 1: Marriage provides us with our most intimate earthly relationship. How do Christians distinctively practice marriage? How do we determine if marriage is for us? Are we different enough?
