The newest congregational member of the Covenant Network of Presbyterians is Covenant Presbyterian Church of Athens, GA.
Writes Pastor Mark Harper:
It was the session’s discernment that by affiliating with Covenant Network this congregation will find greater support in our mission to welcome all God’s people, and send a clear signal to persons identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) that they will find a community at Covenant where they can grow in discipleship to Jesus Christ.
Other mission commitments of Covenant Presbyterian Church include the Presbyterian Student Center at the University of Georgia, The Ark United Ministry Outreach Center, The Cave (area youth ministry), and a partnership with the Evangelical Church of the Czech Brethren (ECCB) in Olomouc, Czech Republic.
Covenant Presbyterian Church is in the Presbytery of Northeast Georgia.
