What is the worship service like?
Worship is a dialogue between us and God and our services reflect that. He speaks to us through His call to worship; the reading of His Word: assurance of pardon; preaching of His Word; the sacraments of the Lord ’s Supper and Baptism; and finally with benediction. We respond with singing praise; prayers of adoration, confession, and intercession; with giving; affirmations of faith using the historic creeds of the Church; and with listening and application to our lives of what He says to us.
How long is the worship service?
Between 70-80 minutes.
What is the music like?
We sing traditional hymns and occasionally a psalm, accompanied by piano and guitar. Occasionally our choir will sing an introit, or an anthem, and even the benediction.
What are the sermons like?
Sermons are focused on a particular section of a book of the Bible that we study over time from beginning to end. We will typically alternate between a book in the Old Testament after which we will move to a book in the New Testament. Occasionally we will look at particular subjects to see what the whole Bible has to say concerning that. Our concern is to hear what God is saying in His word and becoming familiar with the whole Bible over time. We seek to make application from the text to our daily lives. Visit the Sermons section of our website to listen to a recent sermon.
Is there a nursery for young children?
Children of any age are welcome in our worship and we encourage parents to keep their children with them in worship. However, there is childcare provided for young, restless children. They leave the worship service just before the sermon.
Who are the leaders of Covenant PCA?
Our leadership consists of our pastor, elders, and deacons, as well as some key support staff and volunteers. See the Staff & Leaders page for more information.
What is Covenant PCA’s mission?
Simply stated, the mission of our church is to gather and perfect the saints (those who are and are yet to be, the people of God).
What is Covenant PCA’s vision?
Trusting in God’s work in us, we desire to be a fellowship of believers who increasingly grow in love for and knowledge of God and in loving concern and service to our neighbors (family, church, community, world) in order to bring glory to God and point others to Jesus.
What are Covenant PCA’s beliefs?
We are part of the Presbyterian Church in America, a denomination that finds its roots in the Protestant Reformation of the mid to late 1500s. We believe that the Westminster Confession of Faith gives an accurate summary of what the Bible teaches concerning what we are to believe about God and what He has done, and what He requires of His people.
