Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

What To Expect

Young, old, black, white, Asian, Latin, poor, rich, tall, short…whatever your path in life, Covenant Presbyterian can be your church home!

  • How should I dress?  Clothing styles vary. Some folks wear jeans and flip-flops, others wear jackets and dresses. Wear what you like, there is no code or norm.

  • What happens when I get there?  The service starts at 10:45 AM. An usher will greet you and we encourage you to take a worship bulletin. Browse the bulletin and you’ll see all aspects of the service written there. If you have any questions, just ask.  Afterwards we usually meet for Coffee Hour Fellowship. It’s a great time to get to meet some of your neighbors.

  • What about kids?  We love kids! Children are always welcome in worship.

  • What’s the service like?  The worship service includes music, prayers (silent and spoken), readings from Scripture,  a sermon, an offering, the Eucharist (a celebration of an ancient meal also known as the Holy Communion), and a closing prayer.  Many visitors especially love our music. Regardless of the genre, you’re sure to find music which celebrates the glory of God.

  • How long does the service last?  Usually about an hour. Sometimes a little longer on special occasions, such as Membership Sundays, Easter, and baptisms.

  • Am I required to do anything during the service?  You are invited to participate as fully in our worship as you feel comfortable. There are several times in worship where the congregation is invited to stand, including for singing hymns, certain prayers, the affirmation of faith and doxology. The Holy Communion is celebrated once a month and is open to all baptized Christians of Jesus Christ; communion in usually served in your pew.

  • Is Worship only on Sundays?  We also have fellowship on Wednesdays at our Family Night dinners and Table Talks.
