We are delighted that you found us. We envision this site as a “front porch,” where you can come and find out about us in a very comfortable manner, and learn more about many facets of our life together. Feel free to browse through and see if there is a meaningful way for you to connect… to connect with the Divine Source of our life, to connect with other folks who are passionate and engaged, and to connect with the world around us!

Here at Covenant United Methodist Church we believe in the image of God in all persons. We strive to practice “Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors” with regards to all. We believe in the full-personhood and full inclusion of historically marginalized people groups, including but not limited to People of Color, the LGBTQIA+ community, women, the disabled, those living in poverty, and other groups. We acknowledge and lament that the Church has not always embodied the ways of Jesus and has often participated in and supported systems of oppression. We strive to shed ourselves of these idols and live in solidarity and support of the oppressed. When we say, “All are welcome!” we mean, “All means all.”

For our community, we will not “hide our light under a bushel basket.” This is who we are and what we are all about. You are invited to come and explore our community of faith in whatever way is meaningful for you.

We pray that you might find our community of faith a place of newfound relevance for your spiritual searching – a place where you don’t necessarily go to find the “right” answers, but a place to explore your questions and your faith.  We strive to be a diverse place, that requires us to engage with one another grounded in the love of God.

A Lenten Worship Series, beginning Feb 22, 2023

This Lent (beginning February 22) we’ll explore what it truly means to be blessed through the work of bestselling authors Kate Bowler and Jessica Richie. Their book, The Lives We Actually Have, offers creative, faith-based blessings that center gratitude and hope while acknowledging our real, messy lives.

We’re going to partner with our fellow United Methodists at Audubon Park United Methodist Church for this series! Which means that there will be times where we’ll worship together, hear from new voices, and perhaps even participate in small groups together. More on this soon!

Through this Lenten Sermon Series, a daily devotional, and small groups we’ll explore how God blesses us in the ordinary, the messy, and the downright hard moments of life.

Download your copy of the Lenten Devotional here.

To watch our services live online go to our YouTube channel or Facebook page. Live videos begin Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. To watch previous videos go to the Sermons page.

Our church is convinced that the Christian faith addresses all aspects of our lives – including spiritual, physical, social, and political. Our educational topics reflect this holistic approach. These programs are offered as Community Classroom events or in our Sunday adult education classes after worship each week.

Health & Wellness

Nurturing both mind and body is one of our core missions. Our beautiful building is a place for activities like Yoga, Tai Chi, Pickle Ball, and more. Events like our Seasonal Feasts celebrate nutritional health using gifts from our own community garden.

Creation Care

We take seriously our role in sustainability and forward-thinking creation care ideas, whether it comes from our beautiful community gardens, or educational programs and research about environmental issues.

Compassion & Justice

As Christians, we are called to do Acts of Compassion and Acts of Justice. Compassion is showing kindness to another person. Justice is an action that creates a change that makes things fairer in our community or world.

Sister Church Scholarships for 2023

For thirty years Covenant Methodist has maintained a “Sister Church” Relationship with Buenas Nuevas Lutheran Church in the El Salvadoran village of El Paisnal.

In addition to many Covenant delegations to El Salvador, Covenant Methodist has had the opportunity to help El Paisnal’s children with a scholarship fund that provides tuition, shoes, uniforms, and basic school supplies.

For $130 a student is provided a full year of these supplies. We have been able provide scholarships to nearly 100 students every year. (Donations in any amount are gladly accepted and appreciated.)

The fund also supports “Saturday School,” where students study English and basic computer skills. These classes are taught by former scholarship recipients.

Giving is easy! If giving online, navigate to the ‘Give’ tab and choose ‘Give to Sister Church Scholarships’ in the dropdown menu when entering your information. If giving by check, indicate Sister Church Scholarships in the memo line.

Eden Community Gardens is a partner program with Covenant. Have you seen the raised beds and beautiful fountain north of our building?  Learn more about its mission here.

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. It is the greatest gift anyone can give.
