Adult Ministries

From Sunday morning classes to dinner groups, Covenant offers many opportunities to nurture your faith and meet new people.

Adult Sunday Classes

Our Adult Sunday Classes are held from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the chapel.

Adult education is a vibrant part of the life of Covenant. An important line in our congregation’s mission statement calls us to support “a culture of intellectual, spiritual, and emotional freedom where dogma, institutional constraints, theology, belief, and faith are examined, questioned and, if needed, reformed.”

We are challenged and our faith is deepened through participation in the many adult education classes offered on Sunday mornings and other times during the week. Please join us as we seek to serve God with our minds, our hearts, and our hands.


Open to Questions

Classes are designed to thoughtfully engage questions about God, the church, and the communities we serve.


Current Topics

Many classes focus on current issues in Atlanta and around the world including homelessness, incarceration, and interfaith relations.


Faithful Approach

Our classes explore how we can be faithful followers of Jesus Christ in a 21st-century world.

Dinner Groups

Covenant’s potluck dinner groups meet monthly at a member’s home. These groups are organized in the fall, but you can join a group at any point during the year.

Dinner groups are an easy way to meet people at Covenant. Sign-up cards are available in the church office or in the pew racks. You can also sign up by contacting the church office.

Men’s Groups

Wednesday Morning Bible Study

Covenant’s Bible study for men meets in the parlor at the back of the sanctuary from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday mornings.

For more information, please contact the church office.

Women’s Groups

Women’s Spiritual Circles

A women’s spiritual circle is a small group of 6-10 women who are committed to meeting weekly or biweekly for meditation and study with the goal of deepening their spiritual practices and sharing their faith journey.

Please contact our Associate Pastor Jill Ulrici for more information if you are interested in participating in any of our women’s groups.

Second Thursday Women

The Women’s Spirituality Group, also known as the Second Thursday Women, meets monthly from September through May at the church or in homes of church members to discuss topics related to spiritual development and growth and/or to socialize and celebrate our lives together. Please check in our monthly newsletter for details and directions.

Our mission is...

to Equip the People of God to Serve Christ in the World

“Let all that you do be done in love.”

The Apostle Paul
