Join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 11am. Meeting in our church house since 1954, we are a community called to experience our lives as a journey of faith.

About Church of the Covenant

Church of the Covenant is structured with mission groups, not committees. Faith is expressed inwardly by meditation, prayer, and study; and outwardly by service to the community.

A church house, a lodge, cottages, and more than 40 wooded acres with a lake are the context for worship, mission, music, and fellowship. The Chrysalis Interfaith Retreat Center and Camp Kum-Ba-Yah also make use of the buildings and grounds.

Many service agencies and organizations in the Lynchburg area are outgrowths of the Mission Groups of the Church of the Covenant, results of the journey of faith.

The Covenant Commitment

We commit ourselves to the inward journey of prayer, meditation, silence, reflection, and study so that we continue to grow in God’s love and guidance. We commit ourselves to the outward journey as our response to God’s call to use our gifts in the service of the church community and the world. Learn More

Open and Affirming

We are an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ and the Disciples of Christ, welcoming persons regardless of race, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and economic status.

Today’s inward / outward

No one compels you, traveler;
this road or that road, make your choice!
Dust or mud, heat or cold,
fellowship or solitude,
foul weather or a fairer sky,
the choice is yours as you go by.
But here if you would take this path
there is a gate whose latch is love,
whose key is single and which swings upon the hinge of faithfulness,
and none can mock, who seeks this way,
the king we worship shamelessly.
if you would enter, traveler,
into this city fair and wide,
it is forever and you leave
all trappings of the self outside.
