Groups

We can’t do life alone.

We believe that growing in our relationship with the Lord happens best in a small group setting.  The Christian life was never meant to be lived alone.  We must be intentional about finding and connecting with other believers.

All of our groups are a great way to meet people, make friends, get closer to God, and find real answers for life questions.  As we grow in our relationship with Jesus, receive encouragement and accountability from others, we then have the opportunity to make a difference in the world and make disciples who make disciples.

Our groups are structured in a way that allow for relationships to be built.  Some of our groups involve fun activities, some are based around recreational activities, and some focus on deep Bible studies.

We run our system of groups on a semester schedule, but they are open for anyone to attend anytime during the semester.  The winter/spring semester runs from January-April, the spring semester runs from May-July, and the fall semester runs from September-December.

Connect Catalog

We publish a Connect Catalog every semester that lists all of our groups for that semester.  The catalog is self-directing, meaning that you can find a group in the catalog that you personally connect with and jump in.

Spiritual Warfare

Fri : once : 3/9 : 7-9pm : B.Student Center and

Sat : once : 3/10 : 9am-3pm : B.Student Center

As a follower of Jesus, you have an enemy. He would love for you to believe that he has power. But in truth, he is just a punk compared to the power and authority that we have in Jesus. Join us both days as we learn about our enemy, his schemes, and how he actually fears us. Bob uses modern film clips, everyday illustrations, fun props, and God’s word to teach you how to defend your heart, engage in daily battle, and pray like a warrior. Join us with shields up and swords drawn! Participants are strongly encouraged to join the Armor of God small group.

Need childcare while attending a group?

We want to make our environment as easy as possible for people to attend, and we know that figuring out what to do with the kiddos can be a challenge.  That is why Covenant offers free on-campus childcare as well as reimbursement for off-campus childcare for people attending many of our small groups.  For more information on these programs, refer to the “childcare” section of the Connect Catalog.  Click here to register for on-site childcare.

Lead a Group

The process for becoming a small group leader often begins through participation in a small group and apprenticing with an established leader.  The next step is to attend a free market new leader orientation session.
