Ministers’ Covenant Day†

Friday, September 16 — Psalm 107:10-16
1 Samuel 5:1–7:1; Luke 24:28–35

My people will abide in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings. Isaiah 32:18

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. Ephesians 2:19-20

Covenanting God, in your love for us, you have given us the opportunity to know you and each other. Help us to stay mindful of the foundation that has been built for us, and assist us as we continue construction toward the establishment of your kingdom. Amen.

† During a synodal conference in London, Jesus Christ was recognized as chief elder of the Brethren’s Church. The day is observed as a covenanting day for servants of the church.
