Let’s explore some of the places in the bible where God makes a covenant with a person or a group of people. This bible study will primarily look at the old testament covenants.
o Covenants are a common theme throughout the whole Bible.
o A covenant is simply a way to define the terms of a relationship. It is an agreement from all parties.
o Typically, a covenant has some sort of initiation. Examples include meals, sacrifices, and ceremonies.
o From the very beginning God uses covenants, or promises, to interact with mankind.
o When God makes covenants or promises to His people, He always keeps them.
o Covenants tend to use “if/then” statements. God promises to bless His people, as long as they do as He has asked.

My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
