Central Conference Unveils New Hispanic Training Project

Have you considered taking time to discover who you are as a disciple of Christ?

In our culture, rites of passage vary and everyone experiences transition to adulthood in their own way, at their own pace. The Evangelical Covenant Church provides discipleship opportunities designed for anyone navigating those early years of adulthood—a season of choice and change that is often characterized by pressure, expectation, and uncertainty.

The newly formed Covenant Schools of Discipleship (CSD) are a collection of educational programs and experiences ultimately aimed at nurturing the faith and character of Christian disciples. These learning communities take various forms: a traditional academic classroom setting, an experiential immersion, or a service-based learning model.

Students may choose to attend CSD programs that are as short as one month or as long as one year (or somewhere in between). These intentional learning communities bring teachers, mentors, and students together to share experiences and studies built on a Covenant identity to prepare young adults for the journey that lasts a lifetime.

Come join us in the journey.

Three Nails

bulletin cover

The design for Good Friday depicts three nails piercing through the surrounding contextual frame. The off center design is intended to create visual tension as a reminder of the anxiety associated with the dreadful events of the evening while the drops of blood remind us of Christ’s death upon the cross. Our distress resonates within the words of the Apostle Paul, “But God proves His love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). The Roman Numerals “XL” denote the numeric value of “forty,” the number of days observed for the season of Lent. In remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice, the church uses the somber colors of black and scarlet for worship.
