Essentials is an ongoing Sunday school class designed for visitors who wish to learn more about Covenant. This class addresses our distinctive life, doctrine, and worship as a Presbyterian and Reformed church, built upon God's Word. Essentials is taught by our Executive Pastor and repeats every semester. Each Essentials class opens with a sermon discussion and frequently introduces an officer, ministry leader, or staff member.
