What to Expect
The online service is a live stream of our in-person service. Online attendees will be able to sing the same songs and hear the same message, alongside the rest of the church, each Sunday morning.
Why an Online Service?
COVID-19 is the driving factor in Covenant Life providing an online service. We ask everyone who has had exposure to COVID-19 or symptoms consistent with COVID-19 to participate online rather than attend in-person. We also encourage people at high risk of severe illness to attend online until they are confident they will be safe when participating in large gatherings.
Even so, there are many other good reasons to attend online: a young mother with a newborn, an elderly man who is shut in at home, a family with sickness (of any kind), business men and women who must travel over the weekend, newcomers who want to check out the service before attending in person.
We are truly grateful to be able to stream our service to the world in order to enable these people to participate, even when they cannot come to the church building.
Enjoy the Online Service? Take the Next Step.
Covenant Life is happy to provide an excellent online service and believes it is an important piece of our ministry to the church and our community, especially given the health concerns surrounding COVID-19. However, we also believe that watching a service or sermon online cannot replace full involvement in church life. Online participation is not the same as standing alongside brothers and sisters in worship. Nor is it sufficient nourishment for the long-term spiritual health of a Christian.
We encourage everyone who enjoys our online service to take the next step by getting personally involved in a local church in your area. Of course, if you live near Washington, DC, we'd love to see you in-person as soon as reasonable. Thanks for watching, and we hope to see you soon!
