Celebrations

I am always amazed at the celebrations that happen in the month of May. The entire month of May is a festival of biblical proportions. We will celebrate the women of our church this Sunday. If you enjoy an all men's choir then it is the place to be. On May 19th, we...

Living Easter

"But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord." But he said to them, "Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and...

Half Way There

Stephen Ministry

For many years, Covenant’s Stephen Ministers have provided one-on-one care to those who need someone during difficult times, such as divorce, anxiety, death of a loved one or chronic illness. More recently, Sustaining Caregivers have begun to journey alongside those who simply need companionship and someone with whom to share their stories. Stephen Ministers and Sustaining Caregivers receive extensive specialized training, supervision and continuing education.
