There are three regular large gatherings at Covenant:
Sunday Morning Worship
We understand Sunday morning worship as a time to enjoy the benefits of redemption through God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. In worship we richly participate in the Spiritual connection of the church throughout the ages and around the world. Our worship can be called historic in that we use hymns and elements of worship that connect us with the stream of Christian history through the ages. Our worship can be called up-to-date in that we believe that God’s Scripture clearly preached and the life of the church in submission to that Scripture, makes Jesus known in every generation and every culture.
We view Sunday school as a rich opportunity for followers of Jesus to grow and mature at a very deep level. As we enjoy the life of the church together each Sunday morning, God makes an impression upon our heart and, according to His timing, our thinking, feeling, and doing are shaped more and more by the gospel of Jesus. Sunday school at Covenant is also organized with hospitality in mind; all guests are welcome to drop in on any class.
Each Wednesday evening, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Covenant hosts a ministry of hospitality to our church community and neighbors. Midweek is an excellent time to take a short break from the busyness of the week to calibrate our spiritual life. The evening is divided into three sessions so, whether you have just 45 minutes or 3 hours, the evening offers something for every age and every stage of spiritual life. See our calendar for the latest offerings. The highlight of Midweek is a thoughtfully prepared meal, free of charge, served at 5:30 p.m. and again at 6:15 p.m. Children and Youth Classes will begin at 6:15 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. Choir and adult classes will begin at 7 p.m.
In addition to our three large gatherings, evensong and Connect provide additional time of worship and fellowship for the church body here at CPC.
Evensong is a time to gather together as a body to be re-centered around the reign of Christ and prepared to go into the new week. In a setting of fellowship and devotion, evensong always includes Scripture, music, prayer, and instruction. Our expectation is to be sent into the new week strengthened to make Jesus known through our lives. Immediately following each evensong Service, a light meal is served in the Fellowship Hall offering an informal time of fellowship and encouragement.
Connect is CPC's small group ministry which functions as an extension of the shepherding ministry; encouraging growth into spiritual maturity and home fellowship. Connect groups are semester based (Fall, Spring, and Summer), meeting weekly to encourage fellowship, growth, and connection through regular interaction, fellowship, and prayer.
