Summer worship schedule
Covenant will hold two distinct worship services during the summer months. Join us in the Sanctuary for contemporary worship at 9:30 a.m. and traditional worship at 11 a.m.
Summer Sermon Series
A series called "Faith &" from June 16 to Aug. 18 will help us to understand faith in the context of any prevelant aspects of life, including fatherhood, finances, the environment, patriotism, the afterlife, end times, perseverance, vulnerability and identity.
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. in Fellowship Hall Main.
- Sunday, July 21: Young people are catalysts for positive change. Hear from some of our Stapleton-Davidson college interns on how they are learning from people living in poverty -- and how God is calling them to be servant leaders in the world.
Covenant Kids Summer Sunday School
Our summer schedule runs through Sept. 8. Room assignments have changed due to Education Wing renovations. What this means for children:
- Childcare is available in the Parlor for infants-Kindergarten.
- Elementary-age students will go to 9:30 a.m. worship, then depart for the Chapel for a lesson following the time with children. Parent pick-up is in the Chapel.
- Middle and high school students will meet in The Landing (bottom floor of Fellowship Hall) from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Fifth grade students are invited to join us.
- Parents, not siblings, are responsible for drop-off and pick-up of children from child care and Sunday School.
- We need volunteers! Please click here to sign up.

The Landing is on the bottom floor of the Fellowship Hall and across from the rooms used for Room In The Inn. Access the bottom floor from the outside by walking down the stairs of the amphitheater or use the inside staircase across from the serving line of the kitchen.
