Saturday Snapshot — Animals and People Abound

This beautiful deer was greeting our staff and guests as they came in the Training Center one morning this week.  She and her friends have enjoyed dining on our flower beds!  The perks of sharing space with God’s precious creatures on this 1,200 acres.

Cove bears generally stick to the rules while on property.  This one yielded just in time for a quick photo before he sauntered off in to the woods.

Despite all the animal pictures we share here, we also have humans on property too!  Pastor Lon Allison was a HUGE blessing to an auditorium filled with pastors and their spouses.  The event was a 2-day Pastor’s Institute in which pastor Allison taught on discipleship.

This is one of five Leadership Events The Cove offered this year which was free (program, meals, and lodging) to qualifying pastors and their spouses.  If you are interested in attending one, look under the Leadership tab on our website.

There is only one more remaining in 2016 and lodging is now full, but we still have room in the auditorium and dining room.  Keep your eyes out for our free 2017 events for pastors too.

Wishing you a blessed weekend and week to come!
