We are grateful for your interest in Young Adult Ministries at Covenant Presbyterian Church! Our goal is to continually build a community of friends who serve together, learn together, and share life’s ups and downs together. We would love for you to be a part of it.
Whether you are new to Charlotte or have been here for your whole life, you’ll find a community built on faith, compassion, generosity, and love here at Covenant. We strive to be a place where each and every person feels supported, while also being a ministry which serves the wider community and world.
We invite you to read our most recent newsletter or follow us on social media to find out more about what we have in store. And, as always, know that my door is open to you: feel free to contact me with any questions!
