Here is our recording of the live Google Meet Session this past Sunday.
We were amazed at how many groups and or individuals connected to the broadcast, as some groups were unable to meet due to the weather in a variety of places.
Pastor finished Lesson 17 on the Judges, but he made a mistake in mentioning it would be Lesson 19 he would transition. Instead, it appears to be Lesson 18 on The United Kingdom, then finally Lesson 19 on The Divided Kingdom. The next two lessons will be about the Kings and their good and bad deeds before we go to the Prophets. The Covenant & Kingdom is a great biblical series that shows God's Covenant with us.
I hope you will enjoy the word. We normally hold live meetings with Pastor Vossen every Sunday at 3pm until late spring, when our schedule will change again.
Recorded Live from Reverend Vossen's Shepherd Group meeting at St. Martin of Tours Episcopal Church in South Omaha.
We completed editing the last two Shepherd Group sessions by Pastor Vossen. The first lesson talks about the people of God left in the wilderness and the second recording the people of God entering into the Promised Land.
Our prayer is that you will be encouraged and receive God's wisdom for your life from His Word.
Have a wonderful week in the Lord.
Lesson 15-God's People In The Wilderness.
Lesson 16-God's People Go Into The Land.
11 Your savior is born today in David’s city. He is Christ the Lord. 12 This is a sign for you: you will find a newborn baby wrapped snugly and lying in a manger.” 13 Suddenly a great assembly of the heavenly forces was with the angel praising God. They said, 14 “Glory to God in heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors.”
Common English Bible (Nashville, TN: Common English Bible, 2011), Lk 2:10–14.
The angel of the Lord spoke to shepherds guarding their sheep. Wow! what a wonderful picture. Hope had arrived, and good news had come, and heaven was making a major announcement. The Saviour was born in this very city, and it will all be different now. He is going to proclaim glad tidings of joy and a message of grace that would shake the very foundations of civilization itself.
Christmas is, in fact, a time of expectation for everyone on earth. For when you receive the Lord, and allow the Christmas story to become your story. Jesus begins to write on the canvas of your life. The old ways become unimportant as God gives you a new mind, spirit, and a song to sing. It's time to rejoice, Christmas has come, with the birth of the Son of God, our Savior, and Lord.
Please let Him be the reason you love the season. The gifts we shop for and share are nothing compared to the wonderful Saviour who has given us hope in a seemingly hopeless world. Make Him Lord of your life this season, and you will see your eyes open and your heart alive, as Jesus reveals to you real joy and life.
Merry Christmas everyone.
In His Name,
Reverend Patrick Vossen Founding Pastor, Covenant of Grace Ministry & Fellowship

Teaching Lesson 15 from our series on " God's People In The Wilderness. " Pastor Vossen provides us with insightful lessons from the Hebrew children's journey, which we should consider when walking with God today.
For the past few years, we've used our Mic Note app from Google for our audio recording. However, they are no longer equipped with servers, and this week we only had the audio software with Google Meet at our disposal. We are sorry to report that some music is playing incorrectly, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We are looking into software to replace our old audio program. We are hoping that by next week's live session we will have a solid one available for you.
Enjoy the Word, the video portion of the service was flawless. Amen.
In His Grace,
Shepherd Leader, West Omaha.
BLESSINGS TO COVENANT FAMILY AND FRIENDS. HERE ARE THE NOTES FOR TODAY'S LIVE 3PM GOOGLE MEET SERVICE AT ST. MARTINS OF TOURS.
There were some great Gathering services in Omaha, Lincoln and North Platte this past Saturday. I was unable to attend the one in Omaha, but I have heard nothing but great things from many of the Shepherd Leaders in the Omaha area, and throughout Nebraska. Thank you for your great work in putting it all together again. I will post praise reports from those meetings later in the week.
Please pray for our music minister, Reverend Gonzalez. He is able to play and lead, but still has almost no voice since his battle with Covid a couple of months ago. Praise God, he is making progress and feels good.
Today we will be looking into the curious aspects of the Hebrew children's wilderness experience, and exploring some aspects of their journey. The lesson outline and scriptures are attached to this blog.
Everyone have a great day in Jesus. This morning, I will be at Greater New Hope Missionary Baptist Church. Later this afternoon, I will be ministering from our Shepherd Group at 3pm live to all. Since our change to Daylight Savings Time, our group meetings on Sunday are now 3pm.
Sunday Night's Google Meet Live Session With Pastor Vossen's Shepherd Group in South Omaha. 11/6/2022. From Our Series From Covenant & The Kingdom.
The Message: " The Chosen Nation, A Royal Priesthood. "
The meeting of the South Omaha Shepherd Group will be at 5pm this Sunday at St. Martin of Tours in Omaha, Nebraska. We will be having our live Google Meet session with our various groups here at Covenant of Grace, linking up for that meeting and enjoying another time in His presence.
The pastor will finish up last week's lesson on "A Chosen Nation" and start this week's on "God's People In The Wilderness ". You won't want to miss it.
Kindly let us know Shepherd Leaders if you have new quarterly materials for your Midweek studies and Sunday Gatherings. The new quarter starts the first week of December.
Pastor Vossen would like to remind those who are interested in attending his Shepherd Group meetings, that the time of their services will be changed from 5 pm to 3 pm on November 20. This will mean that our CGMF Shepherd Groups, which usually meet at 5, will also have to change their gathering times in the afternoon. This arrangement was discussed and agreed upon unanimously after the recommendation of our founding pastor by our 28 Shepherd Leaders in their last Shepherds Conference call this past week. We hope that this won't be too much of an inconvenience for you. We trust that the change in time will actually work out better for families free time on Sunday night.
In His Hands,
Reverend Larry Simpkins, East Lincoln Shepherd Leader
PS. The notes for today's outline of study is an attached pdf on this blog post.
