We meet together as a community for worship, Bible study and prayer. We are a congregation that values community! In a world fragmented by conflict and strife, true fellowship and community have been lost. However, because of God’s love shown first to us in the gospel, we strive to demonstrate that love to others. At whatever stage of life that you find yourself today, we would love to extend our community life to you.
Sunday Morning Schedule
On Sunday we meet for worship at 10 a.m. Following our worship service, there is time to visit and catch up on what is happening with friends and families while enjoying coffee and refreshments. Sunday School begins at 11:30 a.m. We would love to have you join us!
We believe that worship is more than just the meeting of God’s people. Rather, it is God meeting with His people. As such, we understand worship to be the ongoing dialogue that God initiates with us and to which we respond in gratitude. Central to all that we do in worship is the recognition of what Jesus Christ has done for us in His life, death, and resurrection. To get a sense of the order and content of our typical worship service, look at a sample of our church bulletin.
Music and Singing
Congregational singing is our opportunity to express our love, gratitude, praise and adoration to God. We use the Trinity Hymnal as our primary source for song in worship and sometimes we supplement these with other carefully selected songs and hymns. Our congregational singing during worship is accompanied by piano or organ, with other instruments from time to time. Our goal is to worship God with reverence and Joy. (Psalm 100, Hebrews 12:28)
The sermon is our opportunity to hear what God is telling us through His Word, the Bible. We make a practice of preaching through a book of the Bible rather than a topical series. Sermons are expository, meaning that they intend to examine a particular text or passage and carefully explain what God is telling us and then reflecting on how we are to respond as we seek to glorify Him. You can listen to samples of our sermons.
During our worship service we have a time of personal and congregational prayer. Our prayers to God allow us to speak to Him in confession, love, adoration, praise and asking God for His direction in our life as we seek to serve Him. The congregational prayer is a prayer led by the pastor for the needs of the congregation.
Some at Covenant dress up for worship while others come in casual attire. We are meeting with God and come with a worshipful and reverent at attitude. God is interested in our heart and attitude toward Him, rather than our appearance.
Children and Nursery
As part of the church community, children are always welcome at worship. However, a nursery is available.
