Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath, The Christian’s native air,

The path of prayer Thyself hast trod; Lord, teach us how to pray!

Announcements

This Evening

Pastor Gutiérrez will continue his series in Matthew preaching on “Egypt and Israel: The Sequel,” Matthew 2:1-23. Teenie Lyro is home for a short while from Lebanon and will share a report on her work there with the organization 1,000 Lighthouses and Tyre Church.

Covenant High School Drama Production

This year’s production is Babette’s Feast, directed by Raymond Dokupil. There is limited seating, masking is required, and those interested in attending should email office@chstacoma.org to check for seat availability.

Tuesday Women’s Bible Study

To finish off the year, we are watching the TV series The Chosen, Season 1 together. We began with Episode 1 last Tuesday. This multi-season series about Jesus and his disciples brings the gospel stories to life. We will watch and discuss the shows together, comparing them to the gospel stories in the Bible. “But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.’” Isaiah 43:1

If you’d like to join us, we meet on Zoom every Tuesday morning from 10:00 am – noon. Contact Dawn Darby for a link to the Zoom call.

Ladies Annual Spring Tea

We hope you can join us for our Spring Tea on May 1st at 11 am in DeSoto Hall. Hunters Catering will be preparing great food for us to enjoy while we listen to beautiful music, fellowship with one another, and sing. We will also enjoy hearing from a few ladies in the church about what the Lord is doing in their lives. Please join us. Tickets will be on sale for $10 on Sunday April 18th and 25th.

**We are having a hat contest, so please wear your best hat – think Kentucky Derby! If you don’t have one, you can make your own, just buy a floppy hat and add flowers and/or ribbons! Don’t forget, as there will be prizes!

***If you have lace tablecloths or tea sets that we can borrow to use for the Spring Tea, or if you are willing and able to help with set up or clean up, please contact Khalia Bentson or Tina LeFebvre. Thank you and see you there!

Elder Elections

The Session is calling a special congregational meeting for the purpose of the election of new men to the office of elder, to take place immediately following the evening service on Sunday, June 27. The names of the men standing for office will be released to the congregation at least 30 days prior to the congregational meeting.

Opportunity to Serve

Members of our congregation will be starting to host a meal on the second Saturday of every month at the Tacoma Rescue Mission, the first one being April 10. These are meals that will be made for 150-200 homeless in our community, and we need your help. If you feel that the Lord is leading you to help in this ministry, here are the needs:

1. You can volunteer to help cook and serve the meals (3:00 – 6:00pm shifts on the second Saturdays) at the Downtown Campus.
2. You can donate food or money for food.
3. You can bake cookies or muffins and bag them to put in with the meals.
4. You can host one of the Saturdays.

If you would like to help with any of the above, please text or email Melissa McMillan for more details. As we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus, please pray that this will be a vital ministry that will be a blessing and a light for Christ in our community.

Musicians
