Below is the most recent email from Pastor Al & Mrs.Tava:
Hello Covenant Love Family,
Tava and I pray you are having a great week. This past Sunday we had over 50 people in the sanctuary give their lives to Jesus Christ. Additionally, there were many people viewing online that received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The Spirit of God is doing something mighty every week in our services. We’re so grateful that the Lord is answering our prayers. Whatever you do, please make it a priority to join us on campus or online because you do not want to miss what the Lord is doing. You can see last week’s podcast below.
This Sunday, July 25th, we plan to have a powerful time of worship, serve communion, pray for the sick and also pray for those who have needs in other areas. On campus, ushers will serve communion elements as you enter the sanctuary. If you are viewing online, please be prepared with your juice, crackers/bread and with faith filled expectations that God will touch you!
The turnout for our Wednesday Night Discipleship Courses has been amazing. Tava and I thank you for responding to the Lord’s call a couple of weeks ago about building strong marriages. Over 20 new couples signed up for the marriage discipleship course called, “A SUMMER REFRESHER FOR MARRIAGE.” We believe the Lord is restoring, building, and strengthening our marriages at Covenant Love. Registration remains open for all of our courses. Please visit CL DISCIPLESHIP for course descriptions and registration.
CL Kids Sunday services are filling up quickly; therefore, please arrive early to check in your child(ren). There are numerous opportunities available for those who love God and love seeing kids introduced to Jesus. Opportunities are available for our Quarter 4 Wednesday nights CL Kids Discipleship Courses and the Nursery and Preschool positions on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Here at CL, your safety is our top priority as you worship with us on campus. We continue to implement all safety mandates from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our Governor. We continue to provide social distancing seating and non-social distancing seating in our sanctuary.

CL IS A GENEROUS CHURCH!
Tava and I continue to stand in awe of the faithfulness of your giving in your tithe and offerings and we pray verse eight of this scripture over you constantly: 2 Corinthians 9:6 -8 NKJV
“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So, let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”
The CL Missionary team just returned from Eswatini last week and here is a brief testimony:
“What a blessing the Covenant Love Team from Fayetteville were to Kudvumisa! The team assisted Daran in installing a hot water heating system and they cleaned up the yard around the guest house. It is looking beautiful! These guys are prayer warriors and evangelists! Everywhere they went they were praying for people, witnessing to people, and worshiping the Lord! Thanks to Marjorie McNeill for helping our nurses to see patients each morning! Thanks to Tim & Peggy Atkinson and Lisa Farrar for cleaning up the yard around the clinic. Also, thanks for all of the prayers and encouragement during such a difficult time in the Kingdom.” Please view photo’s below ~Daran & Teresa Rehmeyer, Missionaries to Eswatini
