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.

August Prayer Groups

During the month of August, we will offer a unique experience at Covenant.  Our focus will be on prayer and we are encouraging everyone to become involved in a group at some level.  We are asking that you find 3-4 others who would come alongside you during this time and take advantage of our prayer resources.  You can meet together on a day/time and at a location of your choosing.  We have provided short Bible studies, devotionals, and Bible plans for you; however, get creative and seek out other ways to connect with your group through the power of prayer.  We know God will do great things and hope you will take this opportunity to strengthen your walk with Christ.
