Together we strive to be a growing community of lives changed through the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in a warm and positive expression of the Reformed Faith that both promotes and defends sound doctrine, while at the same time is lived out in love, joy, humility, patience, and kindness. We want to glorify God through reverent and joyful services of worship, biblical discipleship and fellowship for the whole family, and intentional acts of mercy and evangelism. By these means we seek to know God and abound in His grace, which in turn causes us to abound with love for our city, our nation, and our world.
We invite you to join us this Sunday for worship and hope to see you soon.
Your servant in Christ,
When are your services?Our morning worship service begins at 10:45 am with Welcome and Announcements, and the service itself begins at 10:50 am and usually lasts until around 12:00 pm. We also have an evening worship service at 6:00 pm every Sunday (except the first Sunday of the month). If you plan to visit us on the first Sunday of the month then we hope you can stay for a congregational meal after the morning service. We also have Sunday school classes for all ages that begin at 9:30am.
Where should I park?We have two parking lots for use on Sundays. As you pull into our driveway, the small lot on the left next to the building is for visitors, seniors, and reserved handicapped spots. The large lot to the right is a shared-use lot with the university next door, but is reserved for our church on Sundays. You can park in any open space in that lot, and use either driveways from Edgewood Road to enter and exit.
What is available for my children?Children are always welcome in the services to worship with their families. Each coo, laugh, or cry is a reminder to us that "to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." The last few rows in the back are for families with young children and families with disabilities. If you prefer, we have a toddler nursery for children under the age of 4, as well as an infant nursery for children who are not confident walkers, where you may also nurse your infant. Our nursery volunteers have been screened and trained to care for your children in a safe and fun environment. For more information, see our Child and Youth Protection Policy on our Resources page.
What is the worship like?God desires worship that is beautiful, simple, and spiritual. To that end, every part of our worship flows from Holy Scripture - what we read, pray, sing, preach and see (take a look at a bulletin). We sing a variety of Psalms and hymns, most of which are accompanied by a piano. Our pastors usually preach for 30-40 minutes (browse our sermons).
What should I wear?We do not have a dress code, but the dress attire of most of those attending Covenant Reformed reflects the sense of reverence that we seek to bring to worship. While our pastors wear coats and ties, there is a greater variety in our members, from “Sunday best" to “business casual.” We welcome everyone to our services. Clothes are really of secondary importance; the heart is always God's greatest concern.
Why do you have two different services on Sunday?We think worship is so important that we gather twice on most Sundays, in the morning and in the evening, to worship. This practice is born out of the Old Testament pattern of morning and evening sacrifice, and is rooted in our belief that the Lord’s Day is to be spent in worship and rest.
