The Practicing Congregation

In a world often marked by polarization and division, the importance of practicing our faith and fostering unity cannot be overstated. At Covenant Presbyterian Church, we believe in the power of an open church—one that welcomes all to join, regardless of differences or background.

In a recent sermon, our pastor emphasized the need to view the teachings of Paul through the eyes of Jesus. Claiming Christ is not merely a vocal declaration; it’s a commitment to live out our faith through our actions and interactions with others.

Conflict is a natural part of life, and our congregation acknowledges that. Instead of allowing disputes to divide us, we are committed to addressing conflicts with grace and gentleness. We persist in our mission to spread love, understanding, and a sense of belonging.

As part of our faith journey, we encourage self-reflection. Are we being kind to one another? Are our thoughts centered on what’s good and pure? By focusing on these qualities, we grow spiritually and become more receptive to the teachings of our faith.

We draw inspiration from writer Diana Butler Bass, who delves into church growth and conflict resolution. Her insights remind us that growth often emerges from the way we navigate challenges and respond to conflict.

We strive to be a practicing congregation—a community that lives out its faith, embracing unity and kindness even in the face of adversity. We invite you to join us on this faith journey.

In Spiritual Health,

Covenant
