To cut down on the announcements during worship: 1) which are only received by those in worship on that Sunday; 2) don’t communicate all the details needed; 3) aren’t heard by everyone; and, 4) take up a good bit of our worship time, let’s direct all announcements to our Weekly Newsletter.  Many people receive it by email and everyone can pick up a copy on Sunday mornings. Please submit announcements to be included in that week’s newsletter to the church office. This may be done via phone or email. These submissions need to be in the office by 10am the Friday of the week you want your announcement in the publication.

Warming center  We have had no guests during our warming hours for the past 2 weeks.  We will suspend that program for now. If the temps drop below 10 degrees, we will re-open the program.  The need for the program was expressed by our partners in the community, but it has been a rather mild winter.  Thank you to all who volunteered their time.

Opportunity in Covington!

Scholarship Opportunity – The 2020 Wallace Woods Good Neighbor Scholarship is currently accepting applications. The $500 scholarship award is based on community service. It is open to Covington residents up to and including those 24 years of age, who will be attending an accredited post-secondary institution in 2020-2021. For more information and the application, due March 31, 2020, please visit:

Choir Rehearsal 

Thank you everyone for responding with your preferences.  Looks like Tuesdays are best. For those who cannot make rehearsal but wish to sing, we will find a way for you to learn the music so don’t despair!  So let’s begin rehearsals on Tuesday February 18 at 7:30. 

Please keep Tim in your thoughts and prayers as he continues to recovere.  He will be with us in spirit if not in body and voice.

Thanks again!    Sheri

When Pastor Tracy led the installation of the new Diaconate members, she referred to a resource called “Your Calling as a Deacon.”  If you are interested in a copy of the short booklet, please let Pastor Tracy know. She can get you a copy.

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is on February 26, 2019.  Our traditional pancakes will be served at 5:30  pm. We will then need to clean up a little and then have a magic show at 6:30 pm by Jason the Great from Independence, KY.  Ash Wednesday service of ashes and communion will be at 7 pm. If you are willing to help with transport of our friends from Ivy Knoll, please let Sterling of Pastor T know.


A few of us participated in the Practical Strategies for Church-Based Community Transformation webinar a couple of weeks ago.  If you missed it and are interested in the topic, I have a link that you can go watch it on your computer at your convenience. If you are interested, please let me know and I will share that link with you.


March 8, 2020 is the last day for lid collection.  

A new outreach is starting!  Bring in your used dryer sheets. That’s right!  These can be used to stuff blankets to make them warmer….not to mention, smell good!


Keep Covington Beautiful and Mac’s Pizza Pub are teaming up to celebrate the importance of building strong communities through doing good. During this Adopt-A-Spot Appreciation Party KCB will kick off Spring 2020 by thanking those who are doing good and making a difference every day through Covington’s Adopt-A-Spot program.

KCB will be celebrating Adopt-A-Spot partners by recognizing participating site-owners for their time and effort in keeping their “spot” clean and improving the look and feel of Covington all year round. There will be light bites, giveaways, and tips to help make the most of your spot.

This party isn’t just for current Adopt-A-Spot participants so bring a friend, neighbor, or co-worker to learn more about this program and how anyone can make a difference in your community.

We can’t wait to see you there! Thank you for helping us Keep Covington Beautiful!

Share this event on Facebook and Twitter. We hope you can make it! Cheers, Keep Covington Beautiful
