Covenant is an in-depth group Bible study in which participants read and discuss the Bible together, learning how to love God—and each other—better.
Three 8-episode segments each explore a different aspect of Covenant life. Each will examine what Covenant means, and the progression of a Covenant relationship with God.
Examines how the Covenant community is created and established.
Focuses on how the community lives out their Covenant in faithful love—how it’s applied to actual relationships in everyday life.
Looks at the crises that sometimes call Covenant life into question, and how we are restored to trust in God when troubling things happen.
Covenant represents a relationship—a living, breathing conversation. And we invite you to join in it.
