COVID-19

SPECIAL MESSAGE

Please join us for worship in the Sanctuary on Sundays at 11:00 AM!  We are following safety guidelines (masks – see statement below, social distancing, hand sanitizing) and temperatures may be taken at the door.  Please do not attend if you are not feeling well.   Nursery services will not be provided.  We continue to provide online services on Facebook and YouTube.

Two of our adult Sunday school classes, the Issues Class and the Sojourner’s Class, continue to meet on Zoom.  The Bible Discovery Class continues to snail-mail lessons for now.  Please see the newsletter for contact information for these classes.

The congregation remains engaged during these trying times with a variety of events, including virtual Sunday worship on Facebook and YouTube, Sunday school classes, Presbyterian Women’s Circle meetings, and Bible study, among other opportunities, through Zoom.

As our church building carefully reopens, the life and work of the church continues because we are the church.

For information on accessing virtual worship opportunities, please contact the church office at office@cpcjc.org or call (423) 282-5324.

Statement on Masks

On behalf of Session and the Re-Opening Task Force:

While we are cognizant of the most recent CDC guidelines, out of an abundance of caution, we advise that participants in activities at Covenant continue to wear masks at all times.

On a lighter note, singing may commence with masks in place.

Please understand that the CDC guidelines relaxing the wearing of masks apply to fully vaccinated individuals. Our informal poll of Covenant worship attendees found that approximately 20% are not vaccinated. There are some that are too young, are allergic, or are immunosuppressed and cannot be fully vaccinated. Furthermore, there may be some of our pulpit supply folks who may not be comfortable with the congregation not wearing masks.

Therefore, since we are all in this together, we feel that it is a small sacrifice to show our love for one another by wearing masks until we are sure that the risk of contracting the Covid 19 infection is very low.

WELCOME

We’re so glad you’re here!

Covenant Presbyterian Church gathers to worship, learn, teach, and share our lives. Our members include long-time local residents and recent relocations, who bring to our community the richness of their life experiences here and elsewhere.

JUST AS YOU ARE

If you’ve been following God your entire life,
If you are just discovering and learning about your faith,
If you’re not sure about your faith, but feel a spiritual calling or curiosity,

You are welcome here.

No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you will find others here who want to walk alongside you.

Our hope is that as you join in the journey, we will come to know better a God who is active, alive, and at work in our lives.
