Building the body by getting to know each other through fellowship and service
Ministries to One Another:
Dinner for Eight:
Do you wish you had more opportunity to get to know the people who fill the pews around you each Sunday morning? Here is an easy, fun way to make it happen! Enjoy a special dinner at Covenant where you will sit at an assigned table with people older or younger or the same age as you. The goal is to provide an opportunity to get to know one another better through the sharing of food and conversation. We want participation from all ages - singles, families, young couples, and empty nesters!

The annual church-wide picnic is usually held in September on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon from 5pm-7pm. The picnic sites have been Pinnacle State Park and Maumelle Park. The children are welcome to bring bikes, trikes and/or other games. Some of the group shelters, which are reserved in advance, have swings. The church furnishes Popeye's chicken and biscuits. Side dishes and drinks are brought by the picnickers. A time of singing hymns at the end has been a popular activity. You don't want to miss out on this wonderful night of praise and fellowship!
The "Resurrection Eggs" are part of the annual Easter Egg Hunt held at Covenant on the Saturday morning before Easter Day. The Egg Hunt is for children (ages 2-9). There is an opening skit or program, games and search for Easter eggs which are exchanged for filled eggs. Among the eggs at the hunt, are special "Resurrection Eggs". A special presentation of Christ's death and resurrection is given to each group. The special eggs contain symbols relating to Christ's death and resurrection. The child with the special egg receives a special little gift relating to the symbol.
The Reformation Day Celebration is an annual event, usually scheduled for the last Sunday evening in October from 5-7pm. There is a chili and/or dessert cook-off. Children and adults can enjoy the hayride around the church parking lot. Activities for children in the past have been a bouncy house, booths with games, photo booth, etc. All attendees eat chili with all the fixings and dessert. Prizes for the cook-offs are handed out at the conclusion of the meal.
Our annual Christmas cantata is typically the third Sunday of December. The cantata is performed by our Covenant choir, and is followed by a Christmas banquet in the Fellowship Hall.
