  • Deep Dive Questions

    A series led by rotating speakers explores questions submitted by people in our congregation. Discussions are at 7 p.m. in Fellowship Hall 203. Afterward, we head to Dilworth Neighborhood Grille for more conversation. All are welcome!

    • How to make, keep faith-based resolutions, Sunday, Jan. 6
      In 2019, you might be considering life changes to enrich your spiritual journey. But what can you do? And once you make a faith-based resolution, how can you stick to it? Join Covenant's senior pastor, Bob Henderson, as we explore this topic together, and make this event your starting point!

    • Why do bad things happen to good people? Sunday, Feb. 10
      It's a question as old as time - and one which you have, no doubt, wondered yourself. How does our faith answer this question? Why do we experience so much hardship? Why do good, faithful people experience various forms of suffering?

    • Presbyterians and predestination, Sunday, March 3
      Many people know that predestination (the idea that God chooses who will be saved in advance) is part of the historic theological identity of Presbyterianism (and the wider
      Reformed tradition). Yet, it often feels at odds with an image of God who is graceful, forgiving and loving. So, what's the deal? Join Covenant pastors Jessica Patchett and Ian Clark to untangle this thorny theological question and offer contemporary ways of faithfully considering it.
