Covenant Church of Woodstock, Ontario, Canada continues to be church despite of COVID-19 and any restrictions that are needed. We continue to fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. 

In this service we continue our study of the book of Genesis looking at another enigmatic story where a "man" comes out of nowhere to wrestle with Jacob through the night. It would be a costly wrestling match for Jacob as he can away crippled ("a Divine Dislocation"), but Jacob also came away with someone extremely valuable -- a blessing from God and a new name! This story is very similar to Peter's betrayal and restoration in many ways.  It shows us once again how God can use any of us in his plans and that His great big gospel transcends all of our weaknesses and failures.   It also shows us how forgiving our God is and that His heart is full of the blessings He wants to pour out on His covenant people.  

Faith on Fire leads us in worship.  

We also had our drawing of lots (pre-recorded from Thursday evening) for new office bearers of our church.
