Below is the most recent email from Pastor Al & Mrs.Tava:
Hello Covenant Love Family,
Tava and I are excited by the testimonies we are receiving about last Sunday’s service. We know that the Lord touched many hearts, and many were set free in our CL community! Here is a testimony shared by one of our singles on the CL Campus Facebook Group:
“I just would like to let you all know how much I appreciate our church and the obedience of our Pastors. The enemy tried to discourage me from going to service today (being that it’s Valentine’s Day and I have been single for almost 10 years now). I stand on God’s Word and KNOW that His timing is perfect. Yes my walk with God has been faithful but, to be honest and transparent I’ve had moments when I have asked the Lord “when is it my turn?” BUT, when I tell you the Lord used Mrs. Tava in a mighty way JUST FOR ME! I received a fresh wind of assurance, joy, and peace when she lifted up the singles in prayer, after Pastor Al prayed and she said, “hold on let me pray for the singles” THAT RIGHT THERE, blessed me in more ways than I can express! I just want to say thank you Pastor Al and Mrs. Tava for modeling true love for those of us who are waiting in this season.”
The Lord loves us so much that he will leave the ninety-nine and go after the one. This coming Sunday, Pastor Cameron and Pastor Micaela will teach Part 3 of “Walking in Relationship” and provide some powerful tools for our marriages. We believe this message, with practical applications, will greatly enhance your life and relationships.
Here on the CL Campus, we continue to our adhere to social distancing requirements received from our national, state and local leaders. We deep clean all areas on campus. If you attend services on our CL campus, we encourage you to wear a face covering upon entering the building. Our sanctuary seating accommodates the social distancing guideline provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC); therefore, once seated by the ushers, you have the option to remove your face covering or keep it on during service. Whether you choose to join us on campus or online, the health and safety of you and your loved ones remains our top priority.
We have some great news! On March 21st, our C-LUV Kids (nursery and preschoolers) and CL Youth (6th – 12th graders) will resume on Sunday mornings at 10:00am. Our staff and volunteers are gearing up for this great time of ministry. In addition, we have some amazing opportunities for C-LUV Kids volunteers. If you would like to volunteer to join the C-LUV Kids team, please complete a Serve Interest Form or contact Barbara Brewington, our Children’s Ministry Director.
We are still experiencing technical problems at Amazon with my book, Power Up! Coordination is ongoing to resolve the issue. For the time being, if you would like to purchase a copy, contact the CL Church office at 910-323-1515 Monday – Thursday from 9:00am – 5:00pm. We will update you when orders are available online again!
Tava and I remain grateful for your giving in tithe and offerings. Your faithfulness in giving coupled with the direction of the Holy Spirt continues to allow us to be a blessing in our community. Here is another amazing testimony of what your giving is accomplishing:
“Boots on the Ground has partnered with Operation Inasmuch (of Fayetteville) for a once-a-month outreach to help share the gospel with the homeless as they come for breakfast. Recently one man gave his heart to Christ through this evangelistic outreach.”
2 Corinthians 9:6-7, “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.” Your joy for serving God’s people is evident in your giving. Covenant Love is a generous church. THANK YOU!
