It’s fun to attend the same classes as your spouse and friends of other genders. At Covenant, we offer many classes that are open to men and women of various ages and stages. From Sunday mornings to weekday classes to Wednesday nights, we have a class and a time slot that works for just about everybody’s busy schedule. What’s more important, our classes provide activities and lessons that you can apply to your life and that place you in settings where you can meet others who want to grow closer to God.

Our study focuses on the disciple as learner, believer, follower, proclaimer and servant, while providing the fellowship of a small group for study, prayer, preparation, support and servanthood. This past year, we have been using the Kerygma curriculum and will continue to do so for the next year of study. In the Fall semester 2015 we will study the Gospel of Mark and in the Winter/Spring semester 2016, the Gospel of Luke.
The word kerygma has the basic meaning “proclamation” and is properly applied to material directed to and through the people of God. This good news is essentially defined by the Bible. The Kerygma program’s primary purpose is to promote and facilitate responsible, effective study of the Bible in the church.
