Covenant Small Groups

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. 

  • Covenant small groups

              "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Hebrews 10:24-25

    Goal: to have multiple small group offerings throughout the year with the nature of the groups being more fluid. The small groups will meet weekly with the times/locations/venues to be set by the leaders, ideally we'd love to have several groups try out an in person/virtual combination.  Times/days will be set by leaders and participants will sign up for the time/day that's most convenient for them. This concept provides the fluidity that we're looking to achieve, knowing that peoples schedules change or fluctuate throughout the year. Please contact John Bystroff by phone or email, if you have questions, would like to facilitate, or have ideas for a group topic.
