Over the next several weeks, Village will be taking a look at the first 50 Psalms. As such, all are invited to read five Psalms each week. Sunday worship themes and sermons, as well as discussion in small groups, will focus on the Psalms assigned for each week. Below is a reading schedule to help guide this:
- June 19-25: Psalm 1-5
- June 26 – July 2: Psalm 6-10
- July 3-9: Psalm 11-15
- July 10-16: Psalm 16-20
- July 17-23: Psalm 21-25
- July 24-30: Psalm 26-30
- July 31 – August 6: Psalm 31-35
- August 7-13: Psalm 36-40
- August 14-20: Psalm 41-45
- August 21-27: Psalm 46-50
The first phase of Ben Tucker’s Eagle Project is now completed. The church’s playground area has been cleaned up and updated and is now usable again! Be sure to go check it out this Sunday!
The next phase of Ben’s project, which will include installing picnic tables and a planter of flowers in the area directly outside the Fireside Room, will commence in August. Ben is still welcoming donations and volunteers for the second phase, so please let him know if you would like to contribute.
Next Sunday, June 25, we will have a special recognition for graduating high school seniors during service. Join us in showing support and offering prayer for our graduating seniors as they begin the next chapter in their lives.
Village’s very own Ben Tucker is revving up to fulfill his last requirements for earning the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America. One of his final requirements is to plan, organize, and execute a community service project. For his project, Ben has chosen to redo Village’s playground and sandbox area so that it looks nicer and is usable for the Kids Camp over the summer, as well as adding plants and a picnic area directly outside the fireside room for people to use on Sunday mornings.
Ben would also like to point out that part of the process of completing his Eagle Project also includes taking donations for the project itself to get done. Ben is aiming to have the first phase of the project started on the weekend of June 16 and 17, and any donations of supplies, materials, or funds that anyone is willing to give would be greatly appreciated. If donating supplies or materials, please check with Ben beforehand to see what is still needed. If writing a check, it should be made out to Village Covenant Church and have it noted in the memo section that they are for Ben’s Eagle Project.
Next Sunday, June 4, Village Covenant will be a holding a special lunch event to celebrate Tim and Cassie Kim and their time as part of our Village family, and to wish them well on their new endeavors going forward.
The lunch will have a theme of “A Little Bit of America”, so come dressed in patriotic attire. If you would like to help with planning or by bringing food, please contact Linda Jones and speak to her directly about this.
Check out the video below of Village Covenant’s very own Linda Brown making the local news (LIVE!!) on what was just one of her routine visits to LA Regional Food Bank! Suffice it to say, Village Covenant now has plenty of diapers to hand out to families that need them as part of our weekly Food Bank on Fridays from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Please come on by if you or someone you know is in need!
Alternatively, if you are able and willing to donate diapers, or any other essential items, to the LA Regional Food Bank, all donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated! Head on over to KTLA.com/Diapers or LAFoodBank.org to get started and find a drop off location nearest you.
