Community Series-Week Three (Learning Together)

Hi Everyone,

I hope y'all are enjoying all this rain we're having. I'm tickled pink! My flowers and bushes were begging for water and now they're all pump, perky, and happy again. Rainy days make me want to curl up with a blanket, a great book, and a large mocha latte. What do you like to do on rainy days?

This week's theme in our Community Series is "Learning Together". If you didn't get a chance to make it to one of the weekend services, log onto the Cove Church to view the video.

Our family went to the Sunday morning 9:00 am service and it was filled to the gills! Almost every seat was taken and silently I was thinking to myself, "Gosh, all these people must be going to the Panthers game later on today!" It was really neat watching everyone get so pumped up about being in church! Looking at all those people also reminded me of why we need to be in a life we can stay connected.

I hope everyone is enjoying life group and looks forward to Wednesday mornings as much as I do. I've loved getting to hear your individual stories and making new friends. Let's be sure to introduce yourselves to someone new this Wednesday so that we can continue to get to know one another better.

Here is the study guide for this week:

Be sure to complete the questions and bring them with you (along with your bible and pen) to group on Wednesday.

See ya soon!

If you didn't get a chance to make it to church this weekend, you can watch the services online at Christian Chapman was our guest speaker and his message was incredible!

Community Series - Week One

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad you'll be joining me this Fall for the Cove's church wide study series on "Community". Mike's message this past weekend was a great reminder to me of just how much we need each other. Life gets crazy sometimes and it's comforting to know that we have each other to count on.

If you didn't make it to church this weekend, you can view Mike's message on the Cove's website at

Below is the link for this week's study guide questions. You'll want to print them out (only 2 pages) and answer the questions before coming to Life Group on Wednesday morning.

We'll be meeting at Libby's house on Wednesday morning from 9:30 - 11:15. Be sure to bring your competed study guide questions, bible, pen, and a smile. Here is Libby's address:

On the Road Again

How are you spending your Labor Day?

Are you have family over for a cook-out? Are you spending the weekend at the beach? Maybe you're headed to the park with a picnic basket and frisbees? Or, maybe you headed to the mall for some some Labor Day bargains?

Our family is spending Labor Day packing. Yes...packing. Again...packing. Oh boy...packing. Hooray...packing!

It's been 11 months since we moved into this wonderful place we call home. Our family loves it here and we were hoping to stay for a while. Just last year we signed a contract and moved out of our dream home on the lake. It was a really tough move but the home we're in now has been the perfect fit for our family. It's warm, cozy, and just the right size for us.

We've become friends with our landlords which is often times an exception to the rules. They are the sweetest family and have bent over backwards to make us feel at home this past year. They've recently decided to move back into the home we're renting so we've been house hunting the past 3 weeks. The process has included a few anxious moments and sleepless nights but we know it's all a part of the process. Being married to a General Contractor comes with an automatic oath of willingness to move frequently. I've actually enjoyed the adventure and variety of living in many different places. We've always owned our homes but with the economy so unstable we feel that it's best we lease for now until the housing market settles down a bit.

We found an awesome house in our same neighborhood which is such an answer to prayer! Our boys won't have to make new friends, change schools, or join new sports leagues. We also won't have to change our phone number or zip code. The best part is our new home will only be 3 miles down the road so that means less moving expenses. I've learned that you can shove a lot more stuff into those gigantic Hefty lawn trash bags when you're only going a short distance from House A to House B.

Our new place will have a view of the lake, an English garden, and a big front yard. Yes, we feel very blessed! We are excited about the new adventure God has us on and believe that although we weren't planning to move so soon, He's known about it all along and is providing a new place for us to call home.
