    At Covenant, we think about ourselves as a family that is centered around Jesus Christ. He is at the heart of our worship and ministry, life together and life outside Covenant. We are a diverse group of people from different faith traditions - we find our unity in Jesus, in the authority of His word that informs our faith and our lives, and in serving each other and living in redemptive, life-giving ways in the world.

Covenant and the PCUSA

A Letter from our Pastor: Dear Covenant members and friends, Last summer, the General Assembly of the PC(USA)  passed a change in the Book of Order regarding marriage. I have included a copy of that change as an attachment. For the change to actually take place, it needs to be ratified by a majority of the presbyteries. The voting process has been taking place over the past few months.  In February, our Presbytery of Pueblo voted to approve the change. The vote was close but definitive. The final tabulation on presbyteries is not in yet, but it looks like the vote will indeed pass the majority and the change will go into effect.  As with all controversial issues that happen within communities of faith, this will be disconcerting to some and a welcome change for others. For the past six months or so, your Session, anticipating the passage of this change, has been deliberating and working on what might be our response and posture as a local congregation. That response is also a part of attachment to this email/letter. I want to emphasize three things as you read these items. One: Covenant’s approach to so many things is to step back from “taking a stand,” “drawing a line in the sand,” or “making our position clear.” As you read the document that points The Way Forward for us, you will see that this is the approach your Session continues to seek to embody with a posture of humility and grace. Two: There is nothing in the change in the Book of Order that requires us as a church or pastors to do anything that would violate our conscience and force us to do that which would not be consistent with our convictions. For me, as I studied the change, as we seek to engage in conversation and community with those who think differently than we do with convicted civility, the change actually creates an environment which honors those who “stand on both sides of the issue.” Three: As regards to homosexuality, we need to remember that ultimately we are not just dealing with an “issue,” we are dealing with people—persons of value and worth who deserve respect and dignity. As one elder said last night at our Session meeting, Covenant all along has sought to walk what we call a “third way” in every other area of our community life of faith, why would we not seek to walk that middle path—the way of Jesus—in this area as well?  That is what your Session seeks to do and lead us in: follow the Jesus way along with people who may differ with us.
