Generations Ministries

Women-in-Covenant’s (WiC) mission is to equip women to walk in godliness so that they will embrace their God-given destiny and be empowered to reach out to others. This is in line with Covenant EFC’s mission to return the church to its disciplemaking roots through authentic discipleship and intentional disciplemaking.

Women are an anchor to the home and the church community. In the midst of the many demands of life, there is a need for women to be restored in their significance and security and to rebuild relationships through love and forgiveness, bringing healing to both home and community.

A key distinctive of WiC is the creation of a safe place for women to be real about their struggles, and to be willing to allow God to break into their lives.

The main platforms include the Women’s Breakthrough Weekend (in-person retreats) and the online equipping GROW series. There is sharing of the Word through plenary sessions as well as small group time for authentic sharing and accountability. Another key burden of WiC is the development of women leaders through small group mentoring, equipping sessions and service in the various ministry initiatives. Finally, WiC seeks to minister to women in specific phases and needs of life through small group support for women with special needs children and single-again women (widows and divorcees).

We invite women to come and experience community and deep sharing in our online GROW sessions as well as in-person Breakthrough Retreats.

God’s Church Will Not Die

Observation:

What is the significance of Abiathar’s escape from Saul’s slaughter of the priests?

Deeper Reflection
GOD’S FULFILMENT of His word of judgment on the house of Eli through the unjust and brutal slaughter of the priests by Saul is a divine mystery. Out of this comes another divine mystery: “But one son of Ahimelech… named Abiathar, escaped and fled after David” (v.20). In His judgment on Eli’s house, God preserved one descendant of Eli. Such is the sovereignty of God. And we must peg divine mystery to divine sovereignty. God’s preservation of one priest – albeit a descendant of Eli – out of the massive slaughter points to a divine principle: God always insistently preserves His people in the midst of destruction. The narrator shows the sharp contrast in Saul and David’s treatment of the priests to underscore this divine principle. To Ahimelech, Saul said, “You shall surely die” (1 Sam 22:16); to Abiathar, David said, “You are safe with me” (v.23). The priests of God were destroyed, but not completely. “The people of God may often be put down, but never put out. Abiathar’s escape does not mean that all God’s servants are immune from the world’s butchery, but that the world’s butchery can never wipe out all of God’s servants. The Lord does not promise that we will not die for the Kingdom of God, but the Kingdom of God will never die.”34 Jesus has made His commitment and promise that His Church will not die: “I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it” (Matt 16:18).
