GROUPS

Groups are how we make a big church smaller.

"We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us." - 1 John 3:23


Life is better together! Life gets messy and complicated; we get stuck and struggle to move forward. Groups are designed to help people find a way out and up. They are where you go to connect with other people and develop authentic relationships. In a group you can dig deep into God’s Word and wrestle with how to apply it to your everyday life.
Groups really are the optimal place for you to become more like Christ, to be and to become all that God has promised, and purposed for your life!

Community Groups

Community Groups are the ultimate “landing spot” for lasting impact and change. With several different types of Community Groups to choose from, you can decide what fits best for you!


Each group is typically made up of 8-12 people and meets regularly throughout the ministry year (Sept. – May). Time is devoted to fellowship, study, prayer and discussion focused on the application of God’s Word to our daily lives. Many small groups follow the DIG DEEP discussion questions that are based off the central truths of the weekend’s sermon. Discussion facilitated by group leaders is both real and relevant to the unique make-up of each group. Groups launch the week of Sept. 13, but groups are starting all the time and you can join whenever you’re ready.

WOMEN

Something good happens when women get together! Each group and event for is specifically intended to help equip and encourage you in your walk with Christ. You can choose to sign up for a large study that breaks into smaller groups to discuss and apply the lesson, provide mutual support and pray. Or let us know you are interested in one of the many other small groups meeting throughout the week, and we’ll help you get connected.

Young Adults

Tuesdays | 7-9pm | Starts September 2020 | Ages 18-30

The Bible teaches that life-change happens best in the context of relationships and Community Groups play a vital role in helping us grow in our spiritual walk. In community we are known, loved, cared for, pursued, encouraged, and challenged to be more like Christ.

 

We're currently planning out this Ministry year and will have dates and details for you soon! You can use the button below and we'll contact you as soon as we have our dates and locations ready.

MEN

What does a real man, a godly man, look like in today’s world? Men’s groups are not only designed to answer that question, but to challenge men in their pursuit of that call. We need other men in our lives to shape and sharpen us. Fill out the group request form and we’ll help you get connected to one of the men’s small groups meeting throughout the week.

 

 

Men’s Breakfasts are designed to help every man at Covenant discover and deepen relationships with other men. Along with great food, there will be large group ‘teaching’, a personal testimony, and an invitation to learn more about men’s small groups and other activities you can get plugged into. They're a bit tricky to pull of during a panedmic but we're excited to offer them again when we feel we can do it in a safe way.

MARRIED

Spending time as a couple, growing in your faith, and building relationships with others in a similar space in life is both a skill and a gift. Married couples, often grouped by age, affinity and location, meet in small groups to study and apply God’s Word, fellowship, and prayer. 

 

Meets Various Date & Locations

MIXED

We all have something to learn and something to share, and a group that is made up of a variety of people can provide a perfect to do both. Mixed groups are for those interested in a small group with both married and single people. Each small group gathers to dig deeper into God’s Word and apply it to their lives.

CORE CLASSES


These classes are foundational for every believer at Covenant. Core Classes provide interactive teaching on specific topics for those who want to understand and experience what it is to be a disciple and to grow as a disciple-maker. Each Core Class is offered several times during the ministry year.


DISCOVERING COVENANT

Being part of a church means more than merely attending weekend worship services. It involves catching the vision, sharing the passion and partnering in the work. Discovering Covenant is the best opportunity to really know what makes us tick as a church and how you can plug in. This is the first step if you are interested in membership. Come discover why we exist. 

 

BAPTISM

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward commitment to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Covenant believes that baptism is for anyone who is a follower of Christ and his/her children. It is an opportunity to proclaim Jesus publicly! It is a step of obedience in response to a command - a way for us to identify with Christ and His church. It is an awesome celebration of all God has done for us through His death and resurrection! 

 

If you would like to learn more about baptism, you are encouraged to attend one of these Core Classes. The class is preparation and a prerequisite for anyone planning to be baptized at Covenant. There is a class offered for teens and adults and another for those with an infant or young child.

 

DISCIPLEMAKING@COVENANT

These Core Classes will help you grow as a disciple and disciple-maker. They cover the essentials you need to live out the Christian life, foundational principles, and practices that flow from an identity rooted in Christ and His Word. You don’t have to take them in order, but it helps!
