Family 5th Sunday
Every fifth Sunday is Family Sunday! This is an opportunity for the entire family to worship together in the sanctuaryas well as a time to focus specifically on the family. Baby dedications and new member meet 'n greet also take place on fifth Sundays. On August 30th, TCAC will have their next 5th Sunday with the Harmony Harmoneers performing at 9:45 am. We'd love to have you join us!
First of all, thanks for taking the time to check out The Church At Covington's new website. The Church family and I would like to welcome you, and invite you to experience the most exciting opportunity extended to man today - The Joy of knowing Jesus Christ! It is our desire to create a place for worship with an atmosphere where you can begin and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is with great joy that we open our hearts and the fellowship of our Church to present Jesus Christ to the people of this area. We have been in Newton County since 1931, and God has blessed our ministry. In 1990, we relocated our church from the town of Porterdale to our current location in Covington.
We hope that you will take the time to explore our website as well as The Church At Covington. You're just one step away from exploring the many ministries and ministry opportunities that we have designed with you in mind. Upon your first visit with us on our church campus, please stop by our Information Center and pick up a token of our appreciation for being our guest at TCAC.
We hope that your experience with The Church at Covington enriches your life and strengthens your relationship with God. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share with you what God is doing. If you have further questions or wish to become involved, please dont hesitate to call us at 770.786.7293.
We're making a difference in our world through Jesus Christ. We would love to have you become a part of the journey!
Below is a list the core doctrinal beliefs of TCAC:
1The Bible is the written, infallible, authoritative and inspired Word of God.
2There is One true God who revealed Himself as Father in Creation, through His Son in redemption, and as Holy Spirit through empowerment.
3Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and the shed blood on the cross of Calvary.
4Pardon and forgiveness of sins are obtained by genuine repentance - a confession and forsaking of sins.
5In obedience to the Word of God we baptize by immersion in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
6The Holy Spirit, which is available to the believer today, is a gift of God to empower us to be a witness and to live an overcoming life.
7The Gifts of the Spirit are in operation in the Church today.
8Jesus Christ is preparing a church as a bride adorned for her husband and is coming back for His bride, to reign eternally with Him.
Perseverance in Prayer
Luke 18:7 (NKJV)
And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?
There is much discussion and preaching about the subject of prayer. Prayer is a great privilege that has been given to us by God through Jesus Christ. Promises that say “whatever you ask in my name, ask and it shall be given and whatever you desire when you pray, believe” are just a few of the promises surrounding prayer.
For all of the promises there are just as many discussions on why we don’t see or why we don’t have for that which we ask. One thing is sure, we have the privilege of prayer and we should never cease praying and believing until we see an answer in a given situation. Some say to continue asking is showing doubt. Certainly God can give us peace about certain situations and we don’t have to be in turmoil over lost children or sicknesses, but we should never stop praying.
Persistence in prayer is one of the greatest weapons we have against the enemies of our soul and lives. We should never allow anything, including unanswered prayer to stop us from praying. Jesus taught that through persistence we can receive answers that come for no other reason.
For this week’s lesson I want you to meditate, pray and consider the situations and circumstances on which you may have given up. I want you to begin to pray again concerning these seemingly impossible situations. May the result of this week’s devotion leave you determined to persevere in your prayers.
