If you’ve been by the church recently, you’ve probably seen the banner celebrating our Anniversary. But have you seen it up close? The new branding reminds us of the dove that brought the olive branch back to Noah, the Covenant God made with Noah after the Great Flood, and the New Covenant we have in Jesus Christ. The upper portion of the banner traces Covenant’s participation in God’s mission from 1922 to 2022.

But the greatest of these is love.” (I Corinthians 13:13) Thanks to Greg Corner and the other Communication Team members for the banner design and to John Strayer and the Anniversary Team for the slogan.

During this time the Sanctuary and parsonage were renovated and many of our current missions and ministries were in full-swing.
“On a windy and snowy day, just above freezing in 1922, a group of believers gathered to say: “We are the church.” This began the Call to Worship and a very meaningful worship experience to start Covenant’s 100th Anniversary Year.
