Covenant Conversation: San Antonio

The Covenant Network of Presbyterians is undertaking a new effort in partnership with congregations and councils around the country to speak a hopeful and helpful word into anxious times for church and society. Covenant Conversations will help Presbyterians live into a new day in the church’s life, bringing communities together to talk about being church for ALL God’s people.

Our next Covenant Conversation is in San Antonio, Texas, hosted by University Presbyterian Church. We’ll gather on Saturday, September 14, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and which you are invited. If you are anywhere nearby, we’d love to have you there.

The $10 registration fee includes lunch! Students can join us for free. Scroll down to register.

If child care would make your participation possible, contact executive director Brian Ellison and we’ll see what we can do.
