About Covenant

With our location in the Dilworth neighborhood on the edge of uptown, Covenant responds to the spiritual needs of people from many walks of life. Our steeple graces the skyline of Charlotte, reminding us and our neighbors we are loved by God and called to share that love. Our main entrance, open to all, bears the words, "To the Greater Glory of God.” It reminds us why we are here.

Covenant is a forward-thinking community with a culture of embracing innovation as we live out our mission. We have been blessed with consistent growth in worship, both in-person and online as we adapt to the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our campus is home to three schools, a recreation center and a Fellowship Hall that hosts visiting groups.

That steeple, and more importantly, these people, now welcome neighbors from across our city, but we maintain a neighborhood intimacy and vibrant spirit the way we always have, inviting all people into our community of faith.

A message to the Congregation from Session

At the November 14, 2022 Session meeting, the Planning and Evaluation Board offered a small number of refinements to the Arts Task Force recommendations, while enthusiastically endorsing the substance of the Task Force’s Report. The essence of the Arts Task Force recommendations remains the same with the following modifications:
  • Defer the replacement of the protective window coverings for all of the stained glass and refer that decision to the Property Committee to be considered as part of future maintenance.  
  • Make a grant to Habitat for Humanity in an amount equal to the estimated cost of removal and replacement of the four stained glass medallions identified in the Arts Task Force recommendations.
  • Invite the congregation to contribute to these projects.

Bob explains what makes a Presbyterian church a Presbyterian church. He identifies the core principles of Presbyterianism, including the priesthood of all believers, that God alone is lord of the conscience, and faith in public life.

He answers what it means to be a confessional church.

He discusses whether and how minority views are protected and honored in the Presbyterian church.
