One of our driving values is the idea that Covenant is a place where we all belong. No matter what your gender, age, ethnicity, ability, or socio-economic background, we want to welcome and invite you into our church community. Practically, we encourage all those who call Covenant their home church to be involved either by participation in our many weekly activities designed to encourage and inspire you, or to give the gift of your time volunteering in service to God.
