Sundays at Covenant

new to Covenant? Join us
for casual conversation

Sunday, Feb. 21 at 6 p.m. on Zoom

Join Lora Borrelli and members of the engagement team for casual conversation with time for Q&A. It's a way to learn about the life and mission of Covenant from people who are on the journey. We'll deliver a charcuterie box to you the afternoon of the event. 

Call 704-210-8873 to listen to this week's sermon by phone. Updated at 12 noon on Sundays.
While our services are via live-stream only at this time, worship will take place in the Sanctuary, alternating each week from primarily contemporary to primarily traditional – occasionally mixing elements of both: members of the Covenant Choir and Contemporary Worship Team.


Covenant's campus is located at 1000 East Morehead Street, at the intersection of McDowell Street and Dilworth Road.

Parking is reserved for visitors in the center of the main parking lot off of Arosa Avenue. Find a place up close and look toward the Sanctuary building and Welcome Center.

Walk into worship in our Chapel (8:45 traditional), Sanctuary (9:30 contemporary, 11:00 traditional), or Fellowship Hall (11:00 contemporary).  

Adult groups and classes meet in Fellowship Hall. 

Childcare and children's classes are offered in the Education Wing.

Traditional Worship – 8:45 a.m. in the Chapel (temporarily suspended)

An intimate, meditative worship experience is held in the smaller Morrison Chapel. Rev. Bob Henderson preaches two Sundays per month, complemented by associate ministers and residents. The Chapel services often include solo vocalists, flute choir, or strings.

Contemporary Worship – 9:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary (via livestream)

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 (via livestream)

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

Contemporary Worship – 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall (temporarily suspended)

Come as you are for an in-the-round service in the Fellowship Hall that blends Americana-style music, a sermon and inspirational faith stories from special guests.

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.
