Community learning

At Covenant Young Adults, we believe that we are called to learn with and from each other. That’s why we have multiple opportunities for community learning throughout the year. We hope you’ll take advantage of these events: they are a wonderful way to grow in faith while getting to know some great people.

Small Group Options

Covenant is a large congregation, but we understand the importance of small, close-knit, communities. That’s why we encourage our members and participants to be involved in a small group. These groups are great places to build friendships, learn, and pray. Below are our group options

The Path: An Accessible Group For Women
The Path is a group for any young adult woman – but with a special focus on those who are new to Covenant or to the Christian faith. The group encourages faith-centered learning and fun fellowship: it’s a great place to get to know new friends! The Path will meet the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month from 7:00-8:00pm on Zoom.

Seasonal Service Projects

Throughout the year, we gather to support significant group projects such as Covenant Impacts Charlotte (our church-wide day of service), Habitat for Humanity builds, or environmental cleanups. We'd love to have you participate in our next one!

Global and Regional Mission Work

We encourage young adults to participate in Covenant-sponsored mission trips around the world. These offerings occur throughout the year and are a great way to serve, learn, and build connections across our church community.

As such, we create regular opportunities for you to meet new people and strengthen existing relationships. We hope you will consider joining us! Our fellowship events are always open to all young adults and they are a great way to plug in if you are new to Charlotte or Covenant.
