“And all who believed were together…” (Acts 2:44 ESV)

We gather together to glorify God for his love in Christ, praising, thanking, praying, singing, confessing, repenting, refreshing. Ever since the church began, it exists in communities of followers of Jesus. No lone-rangers. He has saved those who trust Christ to belong together. We worship God by drawing near to him as a whole church in our Sunday gathering, and we welcome you to join us. We want to gather, not for our entertainment, nor for putting on a show, but for everyone present to meet with God. Our prayer is that when we meet with God, the church is reoriented to God, and those exploring Christianity encounter Christ. For this reason, our gatherings are both relaxed and reverent. Do not put on your Sunday best (unless you want to), and leave your church “mask” at home—we are all sinners in need of a Savior.

“the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you…” (Colossians 1:5–6 ESV)

We want to grow in mature faith in Christ Jesus, a faith that works itself out through love (Galatians 5:6). The love of fellow believers for one another is the main mark of Christian growth and maturity. We use the term “grow” because it is what we want to happen, but it is also something we cannot make happen. Paul knows this and tells a church, regarding their experience of God: “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth” (1 Corinthians 3:6). We want God to grow us as we participate in tending each other for growing in Christ’s likeness.

Growing involves caring for the spiritual and physical good of one another by telling one another the gospel, and exercising our gifts to build up the body of Christ. We do this by meeting together in small groups for learning the Bible, encouraging one another in each other’s faith, and praying for and with each other. Join one of our small groups below to grow with others in the Gospel.

Men’s Bible Study

This group exists for men to grow in the gospel by meeting to study the Bible and pray together. Held the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month at 6:30pm, in the library. Contact the church for more details and directions.

Women’s Bible Studies

Notice: Women’s Bible Studies are currently on break for the Christmas season, and will resume in January. This group exists to help women grow in the gospel by meeting to study the Bible and pray together. There are currently two studies. One is held the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month at 6:30pm, in the library. The other is every Friday at 10:00am in the library (resumes January 11th, 2019). Come for spiritual refreshment and friendship. Contact the church for more details and directions.

Food Pantry

Covey Hill Food Pantry serves on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of the month, at 5pm. Please plan on staying up to an hour, since each family is received individually. Food Pantry is currently open to all who need it.

AWANA

AWANA is for children 3yrs to 6th grade to learn about God in the Bible. Meets Wednesdays, 6:15-8:15pm, September through May. Please contact Kathleen Morrison with questions by calling the office @ 269.628.2139.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19 ESV)

We believe the church exists as God’s “light of the world” and a “city on a hill” (Matthew 5:14). God is a Redeemer. He loves all people, and has acted decisively in Christ, crucified and risen, to rescue mankind from sin and death. God is redeeming his world. God wants Covey Hill and every church to join in his mission by being a counter-cultural community of love in and for the world. We believe that every member of Covey Hill is sent—sent to family, friends, coworkers, schoolmates, hunting buddies, etc. to speak and act out the good news about Jesus. In addition to every person at Covey Hill being sent, we have plans in motion to more fully obey God’s mission as an entire church. Come and join in the mission with us, or perhaps come and hear for the first time that God came to redeem you.
