We encourage everyone to get connected to the life of the church in these three ways:
We believe that humans are worshiping beings, made for communion with the Triune God, and that ordering our common worship around the Gospel on Sunday has a profound, formative effect on every part of our lives. The rhythm of Sunday worship is the rhythm of the whole Christian life and it stands counter to lots of other rhythms that clamor for our attention and allegiance in this world. Ordering ourselves together around it strengthens our appetites, imaginations and abilities to live as followers of Jesus wherever we find ourselves. Come to church on Sunday!
We believe that learning about our faith and growing together in it are necessary for flourishing in the Christian life. The goal of Christian learning is to form us into human beings who are fully swept up into the work God is doing in his world. Learning is more than simply knowing; it is the internalization of truth that leads to mature thinking and acting.
We’d like for everyone to take two core classes while you’re here: the Covenant Life Class, an introduction to Christianity and to our church, and The Story of Scripture, which traces themes through Scripture and applies them to our everyday lives.
We’d like for everyone to consider joining a small group which meets together regularly to build meaningful relationships and live out the Christian life together. They’re one of the most important ways of getting care and being connected at Covenant. To find out more about small groups, contact Pastor Dan Adamson.
For children, growing together takes place largely in our children’s and youth ministry. Currently, we offer children’s worship during our 9:00 am service for children grades K-5 in addition to Sunday School for children Pre-K through 12th grade during Common Ground at 10:15 am. On Sunday evenings, we have a youth group for grades 6-12. To learn more about children and youth ministry, please contact Ian Troll.
We believe the natural outcome of receiving and experiencing grace is to be propelled outward into mission and service. Every one of us has been given gifts to use for the good of our common life and for the good of the broken world around us. We’re called to give of ourselves because we’re part of the story of God’s reconciliation of all things. Every week there are numerous opportunities to serve at Covenant and elsewhere listed in the order of worship. We encourage everyone to regularly use their gifts in service. To learn more about opportunities to serve, contact Pastor Dan Adamson.
