Covenant Presbyterian Church - Charlotte, NC

Sundays at Covenant

Call 704-210-8873 to listen to this week's sermon by phone. Updated at 12 noon on Sundays.
Beginning June 6, join us in the Sanctuary at 9:30 a.m. for contemporary worship and 11 a.m. for traditional worship.

There will be no pre-registration or limitation on the number of attendees, but, for safety purposes, we will encourage seating in designated pews. Masks will be required indoors. While it is true that many in our congregation are vaccinated, it is also true that many are not, including children, youth, and others at risk, all of whom are important members of our community. Wearing masks is one way we can honor and respect the community as a whole. In order to mitigate risk, congregational singing will be limited to an opening hymn and closing response. Our worship leaders, all of whom have been vaccinated, will lead us in song during the service.

We will continue to offer a rich and dynamic online worship experience for both the 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services.

Contemporary Worship – 9:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary

The 9:30 Sanctuary contemporary service begins musically with the Worship Team, including strings, percussion, brass and vocalists.  Come as you are – from shorts and t-shirts to suits and ties. Casual dress is welcome.

Traditional Worship – 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary

Our 11:00 service takes place in our great hall Sanctuary with the full Covenant Choir, accompanied on special weekends by orchestral musicians.

Children, youth, childcare

Children are always welcome in all services.  Each service offers a short “Time With Young Disciples” segment where children are invited forward for a special message with a minister. 

Children and youth Sunday school is offered  each Sunday.

As we return to in-person worship in the Sanctuary we also are returning to in-person Sunday School. Sunday School and childcare will be offered at both the 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services. Classes will take place outside as heat and rain permit.

Sunday School teachers are needed for the summer.
 
Please sign up here.

Please allow your children to dress comfortably in play clothes and shoes! Children 3 years old and up will wear masks and all teachers will remain masked.

Volunteer shepherds are needed each week! 
Contact Anne Lowrance if you would like to help one Sunday.

We Welcome All into the Life of Our Church Family

If you are considering making Covenant your church home, we have worked hard to eliminate any barriers to joining; we do not require joining sessions, classes or formal introductions. Simply come to the Parlor (located downstairs, underneath the Chapel building) any Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Our ministers and members of the Engagement Committee will be there to greet you. A photographer will take a portrait as a way to welcome and introduce you to the congregation. This casual gathering lasts about 15 minutes – we think of it more as a “welcome to the family” than a formal joining meeting. While the campus is closed during COVID-19 restrictions, we invite you to join via Zoom meeting, Sundays at 10:30. Contact Lora Borrelli for the meeting link.

We look forward to meeting you this Sunday or one Sunday soon. In the meantime, please let us know how we can help make connections for you here at Covenant. You are also invited to any of our ministry events during the week for adults, youth or children. Learn more about those under our Connect and Grow tab at the top of the page.
