    WE ARE AN OLD CHURCH

    Covington Community Church of the Brethren began as a group of Christians who gathered in the early days of Covington. They met in a coal mine break room. Then they met in a chicken coop. Then these believers built a building with their own hands, with lumber milled from local trees. All this took place decades before the strip malls and traffic that are so much a part of the landscape of Covington.

    BUT WE ARE A NEW CHURCH

    After almost closing in 2009, we are experiencing a rebirth. So while our building is old, our family of faith is new. Most of us have been here less than a few years. We are finding new life in Christ, mending what is broken, and partnering with our community. We are a lot like "stone soup:" an eclectic, earnest, imperfect, hospitable, fixer-upper-group of people who are trying to follow Jesus together.

    WHAT WE BELIEVE

    We are a family whose faith in Jesus Christ has brought us together and who are committed to continuing the work of Jesus.

    We believe the Bible is from God. As a community, we gather around the Bible when we meet because we trust what's in it is given to us by God's Spirit. We especially value the New Testament and the teachings of Jesus.

    We believe in Jesus. We believe he is everything he claimed to be, so we pay very close attention to what he taught us. Jesus clears up any confusion about who God is, and we believe he alone shows us the Way to God.

    We believe in making a personal choice to follow Jesus Christ. No one can make that choice for us, so that's why we baptize consenting believers. Following Jesus means we reorganize our lives around him, and we believe doing so will change the direction of our lives forever. We don't ask people to commit to a checklist of ideas but to following Jesus.

    We believe in following Jesus together in community. Our relationship with Jesus is lived out in our relationship with his Body, the Church. It's in community we put what he taught us into practice. That's why we work to build healthy relationships and mentor those who want to follow Jesus with us. Our faith is meant to be lived in community, beginning at home and extending to the whole family of God.

     

    Kid's Ministry

    Covington Community Church cares for kids and families. We have a great kid's ministry to serve our children and families! Because our kids are a valued part of our church, we involve them in at least part of our Sunday worship each week before they head to The Grove for something just for them. Our kids are not out-of-sight, out-of-mind but are right in the middle of it all!

    Today We Offer the Following:

    • We have a space called The Living Room for parents who want to take their kids for privacy during our 11:00 A.M. Sunday Worship Service. 
    • During our 11:00 A.M. Sunday worship, our children are dismissed to "The Grove" for their own special activities following a kid's message to enjoy a Bible story, prayer and learning activities.  
    • Copies of our "Safe Church & Child Protection Policy" are available upon request.

    Christian Formation

    We have several opportunities for Christian formation

    • Discovery Study -- 10:00 A.M. - 10:45 A.M.

    We meet every Sunday Morning for our Discovery Study for adults.  We study scripture and pray together. All are welcome to join.

    • "The Grove" for children -- 11:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.

    Children 5 years old to 6th Grade head off to "The Grove" following a kid's message to participate in their own Kid's Church time. Children enjoy a creative and engaging time of bible study, prayer and crafts. 

    • Midweek Discovery Bible Study -- 7:30 P.M. - 8:30 P.M.

    Our Midweek Bible Study meets on Wednesdays to dig into a different book of the Bible.

    • Daily Bible Reading Plan

    Our church's theme for 2017 is "Known". We can know God! One of the ways God has made it possible for us to know him is by giving us the Bible. We print daily scriptures in our bulletin to help people navigate their way through the Bible and prepare for the week ahead.

    Caring for our Community

    It is important to us at Covington Community Church to extend God's grace to our neighbor and to bring the light and life of Christ where we can. Here is a glimpse of some of the community ministries & services we are currently involved in:

    The Storehouse -- We work with other Covington-area churches to provide food to local families who need assistance. We collect supplies for The Storehouse every third Sunday.

    Homeless Support -- We support local families & individuals who need a meal, and we also help supply health/hygiene items for KentHOPE in Kent (women & children's day shelter) and Union Gospel Mission in Seattle (men's shelter).

    Disaster Ministries -- Working with other churches across the country, we work to rebuild homes & lives after disaster strikes.

    Grief Share Support Group -- We have a grief support group open to our entire community. Our next unit begins in September.

    Missions -- In addition to our local ministry support, we also support Lybrook Ministries, a Brethren mission on the Navajo Nation in New Mexico.

    Recovery -- We provide space for four recovery/support groups who meet in our facility. We have a Thursday women's group that meets at 10 am and 5:30 pm as well as a Friday night and Sunday night open group that meets at 7 pm.

    Our Witness Team will be looking into other opportunities to connect our congregation to our community. While we can't do everything, we should do what we can -- for God's glory & our neighbor's good.
