A Time for Family
“You are a member of God’s very own family and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian.” Ephesians 2:19 (TLB)
God expects His church to be reminiscent of a family. In fact, His spiritual family will out live our physical families. Covenant United Methodist is determined to be “God’s very own family” for you and for this community in Lafayette. Healthy families are active, and our church family is no exception. Our families gather for worship and celebrate the Risen Lord each week. Our family gathers together to study God’s word. Our family gathers together to pray for and to encourage one another. Our family gathers together to serve the needs of others. Our family gathers together to play and enjoy God’s abundant living and we gather together to eat and fellowship with one another. We are busy trying to be family for each other.
Covenant UMC has a fantastic foundation of over 28 years of ministry, but with God’s guidance and leadership, our future will even be more incredible. I am so pleased the Lord placed Susie and me as the pastoral family of this loving congregation. I look forward to all that this Family of God will do in the future.
Rev. Chris Blanchard

 Covenant Mission Statement

Covenant - a church family where People:
     · Meet Jesus
     · Hear the Message of Jesus
     · Serve in the mission of Jesus

Rationale: Jesus asked His church to make disciples. I see that occurring in three focuses of our ministry.

We provide the place and opportunity for PEOPLE TO MEET JESUS through a variety of programs of vital worship and sacraments; in Christian Education and Study of God's Word; in midst of Christian fellowship of a loving church family; in outreach to and service to the community around us.

We provide the place and opportunity for PEOPLE TO HEAR THE MESSAGE OF JESUS through variety of worship and preaching, as well as Christian education and teaching; and in fellowship and learning to live our faith as the Body of Christ.

We provide the place and opportunity for PEOPLE TO SERVE IN THE MISSION OF JESUS as we serve needs in our community and serve needs of the Church Body. What greater purpose could Covenant serve then to prepare the flock to be like Christ 24/7 in our homes, at school, at work, and even in our leisure.
