Our 11:00 contemporary service takes place in the Fellowship Hall and offers a relaxed environment; rich with music, sermon and discussion.

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 Dailyn Sailor 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. We also welcome new members via Zoom one Sunday a month. 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.
