LIFT Weekly Update

All about the Student Ministries at First Baptist Covington

Hey, everybody!

It is a difficult time to watch the news...especially when it comes to seeing Christian brothers and sisters in other parts of the world being persecuted and killed for their faith. Whether it is on our students radars all the time or not, it is and should be something they struggle with. We have been covering how to approach pain and poverty in the world from a Biblical perspective on Wednesday nights, and it may be one of the most important message series we have done in a while.


Join us Wednesday for LIFT as we worship, fellowship, and continue this difficult new series called The Least of These. The new series will help students reconcile their faith in a good God with a world full of poverty and pain. Check out last week's message and follow-up questions below! Be there ready to grow 6-7:30pm!


Then, Sunday we've got our awesome Sunday School classes, which just started the new Gospel Project Chronological Curriculum, which now matches up with the children's studies, but goes much deeper.


This week at LifeLine on Sunday, we'll put some of what we learned into action, going out to help some church members who are unable to maintain their yard. We'll leave from the Annex at 5pm and return at 7pm. Come dressed to work and bring gloves, trimmers, rakes, etc. if you have them!
