“The Church of the Covenant was not born and does not exist to form categories of right and wrong in relation to being a church or becoming a Christian community. There is more than one way to structure a church. There is more than one way to serve God in humanity. There is more than one way for an individual to order his or her life. There is more than one way for a group of Christian individuals to order their corporate life together. There is more than one way to carry out God’s mission of love and reconciliation... What works for me may not work for you. What works for you may not work for me. The questions we ask and the way we ask them, and the spirit of openness with which we approach them are much more crucial than formulating answers to questions that no one may ever be asking.”
-Bev Cosby (church co-founder)
Our late pastor David Edwards left a legacy, not only of amazing teachings, but of music that continues to bless us even today. Many of his songs are still sung during Sunday worship.
