Small Groups at Covenant
At Covenant we learn God's love and live God's love. One of the ways we do this is by learning together as a community. 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. Groups meet in-person and via zoom.
If you have any questions about small groups at Covenant, please contact Pastor Charlie Berthoud.

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 church lounge or on Zoom
In the past, women in this group made mittens, hats, scarves, baby clothes, and prayer shawls. Many of these handmade items have been donated to the Friends of the State Street Family, and after hanging on the youth sponsored Christmas tree, to the River Pantry. The group would like to welcome anyone to join who might be working on a project to donate or a personal project. We are also able to offer help with your knitting or crocheting. Come and spend time working on your knit/crochet creations, and enjoy the company of other Fiber Friends.
