EXPERIENCE LIFE TOGETHER

God created us to be in community with one another and experience life with other people. Small groups exist to bring people together and to make life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to God’s people. Personal growth does not happen in isolation: therefore, Covenant offers a number of ways to get connected through small groups. One of Jesus’ first acts in ministry was to form a small group. It is in small groups that God uses others to bring healing, support, and encouragement to our lives, providing an opportunity for people to help carry one another’s burdens. Please check out our current listing of small groups below or contact Wendy Hicks for further information.

  • LENT SMALL GROUPS
    During the season of Lent – the time of reflection and repentance leading up to Easter Sunday – we will offer several opportunities for you to get connected through small groups.  These short term groups are the perfect first step if you’ve never been in a group or it’s been a while since you have.  Groups will participate in our church-wide study “Final Words From the Cross” by Adam Hamilton in which he explores the final words from the cross as seen and heard by those who stood near the cross.  Please contact Wendy Hicks to sign up or for more information.
