First United Methodist Church

Covenant Bible Experience

This Covenant Experience is an opportunity for the whole church to experience reading the Bible together over an eight week period. Everyone is invited to join a Covenant group which will meet weekly to learn and talk about what they have read. There is even a Covenant group for our students on Sunday morning at 11am. This experience of reading the Bible will focus on the biblical concept of covenant as a unifying pattern as we read passages from both the Old and New Testaments. The concept of covenant reminds us of the unique relationship that God chooses to have with us as God’s people. This relationship is grounded in the faithfulness of God’s love and on our ongoing commitment to stay in love with God while we share signs of that love with others.
