Summer sermon series: What's on your mind?

This summer, Covenant offers a unique sermon series driven by you. Pose a question on a theological issue weighing on your mind.

Senior Minister Bob Henderson and Covenant’s pastoral staff will select a query each week and explore possible answers.Funny, serious, cultural, topic is off limits. We respect your confidentiality.

Summer Sunday School: Faith + Career

At Covenant, we don't believe that faith is simply something that we do on Sunday morning. Instead, it permeates our identity and belief system. And it influences the work that we do in our professional lives.

This summer, a panel discussion series features Covenant folks sharing how their work and faith intersect. Hear from leaders and innovators in the fields of medicine, engineering, law, politics and more. Join us Sundays at 9:30 a.m. beginning June 2 in Fellowship Hall 207. (On June 9, we'lll be in FH203 to accommodate Senior Sunday breakfast).

  • Sunday, June 2: Learn about the faith of those who teach. Our panel of educators includes Chris Calloway (Covenant’s new CDC Director); Michelle Richards; Kristen Horner and Carla Haughton. Damon Nelson will facilitate.

Covenant Kids Summer Sunday School

Our summer schedule begins May 26 and runs through Sept. 8.  What this means for children:  

Fifth Graders (rising six graders) may attend the Youth Sunday School class in The Landing (formerly “the Hole”) on the floor below the Fellowship Hall.

Elementary students (grades K-5) can attend 9:30 worship with their families.  Sign in with the designated shepherd (holding a shepherd's hook) in the Narthex. Following the children's message, the shepherd will lead elementary students to the Chapel for a lesson.  Parent pick-up is in the Chapel.

Needed: 1 shepherd and 1 teacher each Sunday (a commitment of 30 to 40 minutes).  

Early Childhood – Child care will be offered in the Parlor at 9:30 and 11 a.m.  Volunteers are needed to provide Story & Singing time for about 15 minutes. Contact Anne Lowrance to sign up.

Please note: For child protection, parents, not siblings, are responsible for drop off and pick up of children from child care and Sunday School.  

Summer Choir

Summer Choir begins June 16 and runs until Sept. 1. Rehearsal is at 10 a.m. in the Peek Music Room (located downstairs in Sanctuary building at the church office entrance). Everyone is invited for any and every Sunday. Come every week or drop in occasionally—you are always welcome.
