New Round of Small Groups Begins April 11!
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.
Starting the week of April 11, we will offer small groups at various days and times throughout the week. For six weeks your group will meet to discuss the scripture passage from worship to accompany our sermon series "Learning Resurrection, Living Resurrection." The conversations will help you grow in your faith, and will give you a chance to learn from your church family. You are not required to be at all six gatherings, but the hope is that you will come to as many as you are able.
While the plan is for the meetings to take place over Zoom, if your entire group feels comfortable, the meetings could take place outside or indoors (provided masks and social distancing is observed).

Ongoing Small Group Opportunities:
Mercy Mats Small Group
Meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 1:30-2:30pm
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 1:30-2:30 pm on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, starting April 7, 2021, 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. Sign up here. Zoom link here.

"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.
