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.


About us


We Are Family

“You are a member of God’s family and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian.” [Ephesians 2:19, TLB] This is the experience of people who attend Covenant. “There's a place you can go. You can stay there and I'm sure you will find it's” [1] good. This is what we call “Covenant Love.” Covenant Love is experiencing God’s love in God’s family. “You are a member of God’s family.”

You are invited to join our family in worship, study, service and recreation. There is a place for you. Join us in worship on Sundays in winsome music, heartfelt prayer and inspiring preaching; as we catch God’s vision for us, Lafayette and the new earth that God's desire to create with us! Join us in children’s programming – Sunday school and the Early Learning Center. Join us in Highway 412, our youth ministry. Join us in serving our community and Christ in Pumpkin Patch, Covenant Baskets and so much more, as we celebrate, WE ARE FAMILY!

Covenant UMC has a rich foundation from which we are growing an even more dynamic future that is a force for Christ! It is a privilege and honor to serve as pastor of such a creative, loving people. Covenant Church is a family of God with you in mind.
