Saturday Snapshot — Music, Scripture, Flowers and Views

This week, at the Training Center, we had a wonderful Senior Celebration seminar with Pete Briscoe teaching on how Jesus sees us.  Can you imagine being able to see through Jesus’ eyes?!  Pete was joined by extremely talented musicians, Buddy Greene and Jeff Taylor.  A great time was had by all.

Here, some of the Senior Celebration participants are seen on the Training Center deck during their free time, enjoying fellowship and live music.  The young man playing is a pastor that came with some of the senior adults in his church.

Trillium May 2017There are over 300 prayer pillars located throughout our 1,200 acres, and this one reminds us of Jesus’ words: “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”

  1. I was so blessed to be at the Senior
    celebration with Pete Briscoe. I cannot even describe the joy of being there. I was so challenged with His messages of Gods love, mercy, and Grace. It was so wonderful to experience the
    reunion with my Cove fsmily. They are so loving and kind. God bless you all as you minister to people from so many
    Places. The beauty of the place has to be seen to be appreciated. It is truly holy ground. And the worship leaders take us to the throne of grace. Awesome!!!

    1. Faye, you blessed so many of us with your presence here at The Cove! We always look forward to seeing your beautiful face and having a chance to catch up. We’re so glad to hear you enjoyed your time. See you again!

  2. My wife Edna and Neil Voth have been been so blessed by the ministry of “The Cove” having attended the Medical World Missions Conferences starting in 1993-@009. My wife passed away April 21/2017 into the loving arms of Jesus whom she loved and served. We even were privileged to serve in 2002 with Jim wade in Kenya cleft lip and palate project What a blessing and ministry you provide. We thank God for the Cove as an arm of His Church. Neil Voth

    1. Neil, we’re so sorry for the loss of your precious Edna. May you feel God’s comfort, peace and strength during this time. We thank you for your ministry and faithfulness in serving. Bless you!
