Opportunities for Adults

Relationships are important at Covenant—our relationship with God, and our relationships with each other. We have a variety of classes and small groups that offer different approaches to sharing truth and grace together as we follow Christ on the journey of faith. 

  • Learning Communities, Sunday at 9:00 a.m.

    Roundtables: Space for Spiritual Questions

    Roundtables is an interactive class where we look at the relationship between faith and contemporary culture. We meet and talk around tables in the Family Room. Find out about Roundtables current series here.

    • Listen to Steve Rabey's talk, How to Love Your Pastor, Part 2, here.

    • Listen to Glenn Paauw's series, Between and Betwixthere.

    Book Study

    This class for adults is discussing the book Can I Ask That Volume Two: More Hard Questions About God & Faith by Jim Candy, Brad M. Griffin, and Kara Powell. The book is from Fuller Youth Institute and published by Sticky Faith Research. According to research done by the publishers, it is not doubt or hard questions that are toxic to faith—it is silence. This book is designed for small groups to ask and discuss hard questions, such as: 

    • Is it wrong to doubt God?
    • Is hell real? How could God send someone there?
    • Can I do something so bad God won't forgive me? 
    • Why do bad things happen to good people? 
  • Women's Ministries

    Covenant’s Women’s Ministries seeks to nurture women by helping to meet their needs at all ages and stages of life. Our goal is to meet each woman where she is, accept her, and invite her to be a part of our church family. Through weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual events, we hope to provide women with opportunities to build relationships with each other, to relax, to grow in their faith, and to have fun.

    Thursday Morning Women’s Bible Study 

    Women meet for Bible study and fellowship during the school year.

    Beginning January 9, the Thursday Morning Bible Study
    will begin the book of Acts from the Immerse Reading Bible.
    Each week we will be reading, discussing what we are learning, what we have questions about, and how we can apply it to our lives.

    Thursday, 9:00-11:00 a.m., Room 204.

    The Well

    The Well is an open group that seeks to be a safe place where you can come as you are and be yourself. Many of us work during the day and need a place to connect at church. We love to laugh, to share the nitty-gritty of our lives, and to wrestle with God’s call on our lives. The Well will begin the winter/spring semester on January 16.

    Thursdays, 6:30–8:00 p.m, Room 204

    Book Club

    If you love to read and discuss books with friends, you’re invited to join the Book Club that meets the last Sunday of most months. Our fellowship time centers around a monthly fiction or non-fiction book selection that challenges our thinking. A list of upcoming books and gatherings is available here

    Retreats and Special Gatherings

    Two to three times a year, the women's ministries plan a day of retreat and refreshing combined with an outreach project. At recent events the women made fleece blankets for children in need, raised funds for trafficked women and children, and wrote cards to missionaries across the globe and to women in prison. There will be two special events this winter/spring: Blankets, Brunch, and a Buddy, where women (and men) will make tied fleece blankets for moms and children staying at Mary's Home and Going Beneath the Surface, an interactive discussion on relationships and fellowship. Find out more about these events in the Women's Ministry's Spring brochure here

  • Men's Ministries

    Covenant's men’s ministries provide great opportunities for guys of all ages to connect, grow spiritually, at all ages and stages of life.

    Old Guys’ Breakfast: Not just for old guys, join us for breakfast for an hour at IHOP at 8065 N. Academy at 7:00 a.m. each Tuesday morning. These men value good conversation, good humor, devotionals, and they pray for each other every week.

    Nuts & Bolts: Nuts and Bolts is our monthly men’s fellowship  breakfast. Nuts and Bolts meet the third Saturday of each month from 7:00–8:30 a.m. in the Family Room. It’s a time for men to gather for breakfast, fellowship, and discipleship. We always have an all-around quality experience together in our quest to be better men and disciples of Christ. All men 18 years and older are welcome. Find out about upcoming events here.
