What people are saying

about Covenant


  • I came to know Covenant through Reverend Jonyrma, a previous pastor. I got to know her when I was away at school, and began visiting Covenant on breaks. I got married here and joined in 2003. While we visited many churches over the years, Covenant matches best with our ideology. We so appreciate the welcoming spirit. My family feels at home here, and enjoys being involved in family activities and youth ministries.

  • Born into the Church of the Covenant (my father grew up here; my mother was a soprano soloist while a student at Flora Stone Mather; my parents were married at Covenant; I was baptized by Dr. Phillip Smead Bird), my lifelong participation in the music program has been a huge part of my spiritual life. I was a bell ringer in the first bell choir, a singer in the junior choirs, and I’m now in my forty-fifth year in the Covenant Choir. I have a deep love of this church where we also raised our children. I appreciate Covenant’s members, music program, organs, architecture and its elegance, and will continue to support this church as long as I am able.

  • Baptized at Covenant, I was involved from day one. The beautiful music, intellectual and thought-provoking sermons, opportunity for community involvement, and lifelong friendships keep me returning every week. I especially appreciate how active the Covenant is in the fight for social justice and equality, providing a platform for discussion, involvement in social issues, and a place of peace to pray for resolution on such matters. There is something for everyone.
