Descriptions and "What to Expect" For Worship and Ministries This Fall at Covenant

Covenant is taking Jesus' message to love our neighbor very seriously during the pandemic, and we take public health very seriously.  All of our worship and educational gatherings are less than 50 people, utilizing physical distancing guidelines and facemasks.   We are offering much educational content online via Zoom, and trying to be very creative in how we gather for the sake of public health.  If you are new, know that we are doing things differently than "normal", but all of our actions are done with public health in mind.  Until "normal" returns, we pray for vaccines and effective therapeutic medicines to get us past the pandemic.  Please click on ministries to learn more about what offerings are listed and how they will be presented in a lower-risk method. 


10:00am Livestream Service.  We trust your judgement and support you if you need to worship from home.  We livestream our 10:00am sanctuary service via our facebook page.  


10:00am Sanctuary Worship.  (This is the same as the live stream service).  Physical-distancing guidelines will be practiced.  This will be a *touchless* service; no bulletins, no passing an offering plate, etc.   While music leaders will offer music, there will be no congregational singing, as singing indoors is one of the best ways to spread the coronavirus.   There will be no Childrens church, nor will refreshments be served.  Facemasks are strongly encouraged.  It may seem that we will "not" be doing many things, but rest assured, we *will* be offering meaningful worship to the Lord our God.  


11:30am—Outdoor Family Friendly Service. This 35-minute service will take place outdoors in the East Yard (if it rains, we will move inside practicing social-distancing and no singing).  It will be fun, energetic, and directed towards families with younger children.  Please bring a lawn chair  or blanket & your family members.  The playground will remain closed at this time.  Physical-distancing guidelines will be practiced.  Facemasks are strongly encouraged.  


6:00pm—”Come As You Are” Outdoor Communion Service.  This simple 45-60 minute service will feature singing, a short sermon, testimony, and “serve yourself” communion.  (If it rains, we will move indoors and we won't sing).  Please bring a lawn chair, bread and juice.  Physical-distancing guidelines will be practiced.  Facemasks are strongly encouraged.  If it rains, we will move indoors and we won't sing.
