Weekly Announcements: 6/17/16

 1. Kevin Blue Ordination: On Saturday, June 25, at 7:00 pm, Pastor Kevin will be ordained by the Evangelical Covenant Church (during the Covenant Annual Meeting, held this year in Phoenix) and receive a permanent ministerial credential with the denomination. (The ECC offers multiple levels of credentialing; previously, Pastor Kevin held a ministry license that was renewed on an annual basis.) The ordination service will be streamed on the ECC website (www.covchurch.org/gather), so feel free to watch along and celebrate this significant moment in Pastor Kevin's life and ministry. Please also pray for him and Pastor Jen, that God will continue to shepherd them as they shepherd us!

2. Old Testament Read-Through: We are continuing in our two-year journey through the Old Testament. We are just finishing Numbers and will be beginning Deuteronomy next week. If you have not been reading along, but would like to start, you can catch up by viewing summary videos from The Bible Project here. (These videos may also be helpful as a supplement to the readings on an ongoing basis.) If you need a reading guide, you can pick one up at the hospitality table on Sunday, or view/download an online version here. If you prefer to hear the Scriptures read aloud, BibleGateway offers multiple audio versions in English and Spanish.
