After an extended holiday hiatus, our Sunday evening services will resume on January 21st. Join us at 5 PM each Lord’s Day for worship with the Lord’s people.
Due to inclement weather with icy conditions, all services for Sunday, January 14th, are canceled. We encourage everyone to engage in personal or household worship on this Lord’s Day, perhaps listening to a past sermon on this web-site and spending some time in praise and prayer.
We will have a Service of Lessons and Carols Celebrating the Incarnation on Sunday, December 24th, at 5 PM. Please plan to join us for this time of worship and celebration of the birth of our Savior!
In preparation for the celebration of Christ’s incarnation, Pastor Wright will preach on the four “Nativity Hymns” in the Gospel of Luke. These passages have often been set to music and have become known by Latin titles: Magnificat (Mary’s song in Luke 1.46-56), Benedictus (Zacharias’s prophecy in Luke 1.67-79), Gloria (Angels’ praise in Luke 2.14), and Nunc Dimittis (Simeon’s song in Luke 2.29-32).
Join us on Sunday mornings as we worship and explore together these rich passages from God’s Word.
Due to our pastor’s travel and other ministry commitments, we will not be holding Sunday evening services in the month of November. Evening services will resume at 5 PM each Sunday, beginning December 3rd. Plan to join us then for our continuing study of Ephesians.
On Sunday, November 5th, we will cancel our evening service at Covenant to join with other area believers in celebrating the Reformation in song. “Let the People Sing: REF500 Hymnfest” will be held at First Baptist Church (1627 N. Highland Dr.) starting at 6 PM. It will be a service of congregational singing led by the FBC Sanctuary Choir and Union University Singers. Come, celebrate our spiritual heritage as we sing together of the great Reformation truths.
