WORSHIP WITH US
Contemporary Worship 9:00 | Traditional Worship 11:00
We gather weekly to worship God together and to share with one another all of God's gracious gifts. As a congregation, we are committed to growing in faith and learning how our faith shapes our lives. Our 9:00 service is a more relaxed, casual worship experience with a piano-led band, and occasionally a guitar-led band. We also have a traditional worship service at 11:00, which features more classical music and is led by an organ. During the summer (May 26-September 15, 2019), we go to one service at 9:30am. Our services seek to be family-friendly as well as engaging, educational, and uplifting for people of all ages. We also have special programs for children in worship. As a community, we seek to listen to God's word that we might be a reflection of God's light and love to the world!
Worshipping with Music
Music ministries have been a vibrant part of our congregation's worship since our beginnings. Today, we have traditional choirs, a contemporary worship band, piano and organ-led services, a handbell choir, and more! We also have special recitals and music events throughout the year, including our annual Vacation Bible School musical.
Language Used in Worship
We are aware that human language cannot adequately name and describe God. In our liturgy, we may use traditional texts that refer to God as "He." However, we also strive to use language, which is both faithful to biblical truth and which does not exclude people because of gender, color, or other circumstances in life.
We use a variety of approaches to preaching the Word here at Covenant. Throughout the year, we seek to include creative expression in worship as much as possible. This includes dramas, art, liturgical dancers, music recitals, and more!
Celebration of Holy Communion
We observe Communion on the first Sunday of every month. Following Jesus' example of sharing meals with both "sinners" and "saints," we invite all who desire to share the bread of life and cup of salvation with us. In celebrating the sacrament, we use gluten-free bread and grape juice, so that all may share with us.
