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

Tonight at sunset walking on the snowy road,
my shoes crunching on the frozen gravel, first
through the woods, then out into the open fields
past a couple of trailers and some pickup trucks, I stop
and look at the sky. Suddenly: orange, red, pink, blue,
green, purple, yellow, gray, all at once and everywhere.
I pause in this moment at the beginning of my old age
and I say a prayer of gratitude for getting to this evening
a prayer for being here, today, now, alive
in this life, in this evening, under this sky.
