Resources and Library

Are you in a small group? Do you want to start a small group? Need suggestions for a group study? The Small Group Resource Library is for you! This is a compilation of resources that small groups at Covenant have used and enjoyed, or that come highly recommended by pastors and leaders. You’ll find a range of topics from personal spiritual disciplines to literature about the conflict in Israel and Palestine. The books are categorized by topic and they all have a brief overview of material covered. Take a look online or come browse in person - the Small Group Resource Library is located in EW 212. We hope this will be a good starting point for you as you decide what suits your group best.

Bible Studies
These books all begin with the biblical text, whether they take one book and cover it completely or one theme and trace it throughout the Old and New Testaments, these studies are for people who want to know the Bible better and explore the text more deeply. Download the list.

Book Club
Novels and other books that are meant to be read in full for people and groups who enjoy getting lost in stories and personal accounts of life journeys. Download the list.
