Welcome From Our Pastor
Welcome to the Covenant website! We're a faithful and joyful group of committed Christ-followers and pilgrims, on the Journey together in East Wake and the "Five County" area. Covenant belongs to the Presbyterian Church U.S.A, and, through it, we participate in the worldwide fellowship of Christian churches. Our purpose is to glorify God through 1) worship, 2) education, and 3) service to others. We are a friendly and caring congregation, outwardly involved, as a faithful Christian witness to God's love. While we are serious about ministry, we also find great JOY in serving alongside our church family.
It seems that churches everywhere have experienced a setback in attendance, programming, and participation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We at Covenant have chosen to view the "pause" of the past two years as an opportunity for a "re-boot". In many ways, we're starting fresh, and now is a great time for you to come and get in on the ground floor of the NEW THING that God is doing.
Covenant's beautiful campus is located at 125 South Selma Road in Wendell. We're just a few miles from Clayton, Archer Lodge, Flowers Store, Knightdale, and Zebulon- and we have members living in all of those places. We're an easy drive from anywhere in "five county" area.
If you have questions, email us or call 919-365-7979. Better yet, just come and worship with us- we'll be happy to meet you!
