Small Groups at Covenant

Small groups are a tremendous way to spend time getting to know your church family while also reflecting together on God’s work in our lives. Some Covenant small groups meet in person and some meet via Zoom.


Our next small group series will be in Lent 2022! Stay tuned. Small groups meet for 6 weeks whenever we have a series, though we do not expect everyone to attend every single session. Sign-ups for Lent will be coming soon! For now, take a look below at our ongoing small groups. 

Ongoing Small Group Opportunities


Racists Anonymous Fellowship (RAF)

Meets on Thursdays at 7:00pm

RAF is a fellowship of individuals seeking to achieve personal recovery from racist habits and the effects of racism. Its purpose is to help individuals address their own role in the sin and addiction of racism. Click here to access the RAF group's website, which features the program guidebook and other resources (only group members may access the documents).

Mercy Mats Small Group

Meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 1:30-3:00pm

A mercy mat is a hand-crocheted bed roll made from reused plastic shopping bags. As part of the Adult Education Committee’s theme of Compassion: Giving of Ourselves, this group will meet from 1:30-3:00 pm on the first and third Wednesdays of the month to sort, cut, and crochet strips of plastic into useful sleeping mats. Over 700 bags per mat are needed! You don’t need to know how to crochet to participate. An instructor will be present at each meeting. Watch this video to see how the mats are made. Completed mats will be donated to our mission partners Friends of State Street and Porchlight.

"2:42" Small Group

Meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 4:00-5:00 pm
A group, consisting mainly of parents with young(ish) kids, who are devoted to bible study, fellowship, and community, following the model of Acts 2:42: "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers."

Knitting & Crochet Group

Meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month from 10:00-11:30 am
In past years women in this group, along with several other women in the congregation, made many pairs of mittens, hats, scarves, baby sweaters, and prayer shawls. The donation of time, talent and yarn will touch the lives and warm the hands and heads of many children and young adults in Madison and hearts of Covenant members. The group is always open to anyone who might like to stop by and work on a personal project or learn a new one. This is a great place to learn how to knit or crochet.
