What Our Members Have to Say

Why do I go to Covenant? Because I want to be part of building the "beloved community". Because all truly are welcome and God's love can be felt in the skin within our walls. Covenant is love, Covenant is standing up for the lost and the least. Covenant is my home.

Heather S.

With 2 kids, we wanted to give them a sound religious foundation based on African American, baptist experience, social justice, and inclusion. We came to Covenant and never looked back.

Karen D. & Belinda W.

I came to Covenant over 10 years ago. I love the feeling of community at Covenant; there's a place for everyone.

Wyl S.
