Covenant Presbyterian Church - Charlotte, NC

Re-opening News and Information

“And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”

March 10, 2022

Dear Covenant Family,

After two years of waiting, the Re-Opening Task Force has moved Covenant’s campus to “mask-optional” effective immediately. This decision is campus wide and affects all areas of our church community.

For the foreseeable future, we will continue to monitor the daily infection rate and move back to a more restrictive masking approach should the infection rate increase above 5.5%. We will also continue to require all non-masked worship leaders to be fully vaccinated. Food Services and the Recreation Wing will go back to pre-COVID operations, with masks optional.

We continue to be grateful to the Covenant community for your patience and support as we have maneuvered our way through the pandemic. We look forward to seeing Covenant’s campus come alive as we celebrate this Lenten season.

All the best,
 
Deana Cooper, Chair
Tommy Lawson, Clerk of Session            
Sarah Crowder        
Katie Stewart
Bill McNairy
