S.H.A.P.E  - an opportunity to gather and grow
"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago." Ephesians 2:10
Join Reverend Debbie (Sunday morning) or Leann Dale (Sunday evening) for SHAPE, a six week study that will help us discover our unique SHAPE and how we can use our unique talents, experiences and passion for the strengthening of the Church. The topics are: S - Spiritual Gifts; H - Heart; A - Abilities; P - Personality; and E - Experiences. The goal of the six-week study is that we will discover new ways to serve God at Covenant Presbyterian Church and to think about new ministry opportunities. Everyone is invited and encouraged to join in one of these studies. Debbie says it promises to be an enriching experience and a way for us to get better acquainted with our fellow sojourners at Covenant Presbyterian in Wendell.
