Welcome! We look forward to meeting you face-to-face (or via Zoom). We are a neighborhood church with a big mission: to bless others as we have been blessed (Genesis 12:2). We’re tightly connected with the local Arlington community, but we have a global outreach.
Join us for worship on Sunday at 2666 Military Road (or via Zoom).
Church of the Covenant
Established in 1958, Church of the Covenant is a congregation of Presbyterian Church USA, a protestant denomination in the United States. The Reformation of the church in Europe dates from the year 1517 when Martin Luther nailed his "95 Theses" to the door of the chapel church in Wittenburg, Germany.
Why is it called Covenant?
What is the meaning of the word COVENANT? It is a solemn agreement in the Bible, the agreement between God and humans, referred to over and over again in both the Old and New Testaments.
This COVENANT is referred to as eternal - forever, unending, God and humans in relationship with each other. Even when humans fall short of their end of the promises, God’s promises in the Covenant are never broken. To illustrate and accentuate this theme, the “ribbon” windows (pictured on the homepage) in the sanctuary depict Covenants in the Old and New Testaments.
Our leadership team serves our congregation to bring about God’s Kingdom on Earth.
We gather to worship in the Reformed Presbyterian tradition.
We serve our neighbors by opening up Church of the Covenant’s facilities to the community.
You are invited to join the Church of the Covenant on Sunday, March 10th at 3:00pm as we present a Lenten Lecture with music on the "Spirituals of Lent" by Dr. Eileen Guenther, Professor Emerita of Church Music at Wesley Theological Seminary. This is a very special opportunity to hear and learn more about these powerful spirituals which focus on freedom and resurrection. We hope to see you in our Fellowship Hall on the 10th!
