At Covenant Church it’s our desire to make you feel right at home the moment you pull into our parking lot! That’s why we’ve done our best to answer any questions you may have to make that first experience an enjoyable one.
What to Expect
As a first-time guest at Covenant Church—we will be with you every step of the way! When you enter the lobby please stop by our Next Steps Desk with the blue banner. There you will meet members of our Dream Team who are eager to answer any questions you have, help you find a seat, or assist you with checking-in your children. The Dream Team will also have a special gift for you! Come as you are this Sunday.
What Is a Service Like?
Every Sunday, our Dream Team can be found around the lobby in their blue shirts, and are available to answer any questions you have. The lobby is also a great place to meet new people!
Got kids? Let us show you where to check them in before service.
Afterwards, head into the main worship center where a Dream Team member will help you and your family find a comfortable seat.
Our Sunday services begin with an energetic and engaging worship experience. Feel free to sit, stand, clap, or lift your hands during this time—knowing that worship is all about connecting with God.
The teaching portion of our service is Bible-based and aims to be relevant and practical for your everyday life. No matter who’s teaching, you can count on the message to be engaging, inspiring, and straight-forward!
We invite you to meet with our pastoral team after service in the lobby. They’d love to hear what you thought about the service and pray for you and your family! This is also a great time to find out more about Covenant Church.
What do we have for Kids & Youth?
Our kids & youth staff and volunteers are incredible. You can rest assured that your children will be loved and taken care of in a safe, secure, and exciting environment designed just for them.
Covenant Kids offers childcare and programs for children ages 0-12 during our 11am Sunday service.
Legendary Youth is for students 6th – 12th grade. They meet every Wednesday night at 7pm in the Student Worship Center.
Plan to arrive about 20 minutes early to get everyone checked in.
Common Questions about in-person gatherings during COVID-19
Our priority is to provide a clean and comfortable environment for you.
During services, we will be following the state guidelines, but encourage everyone to continue to follow their conscience on whether or not to wear a mask in service. We invite you to worship where you are most comfortable, so we will still stream online service at 9:00am, 11:00am, and 1:00pm.
Are seating reservations required?
You will not need to reserve your seat. Seating will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
What sanitization measures will be in place?
Our team will frequently disinfect surfaces throughout the building and hand sanitizers will be placed throughout the building. Coffee stations will not be available at this time.
What about Covenant Kids and Legendary Youth services?
We’re taking additional steps to keep our kids environments safe (and fun) for your family! Currently, Covenant Kids classrooms are open for check-in with lower child to adult ratios during the 11am service.
Children are also welcome to attend the service with you and encouraged to bring a tablet or mobile device with earbuds to watch their very own Bible lesson at youtube.com/covenantkids. We will also have CovKids busy bags available at the worship center doors.
What about face coverings?
During services, we will be following the state guidelines, but encourage everyone to continue to follow their conscience on whether or not to wear a mask in service.

Coffee will not be available at this time.

Are you a “Christian” church?
Yes. To learn more about what we believe, click here.
What if I'm not even sure I believe in God?
If you haven’t made a decision to accept Christ, but would like to know more about it, that’s a good thing. That means you’re asking questions about spiritual things and how they might relate to your life. You are still more than welcome to attend our services; in fact, we encourage it! You can also connect with Starting Point to get some answers to some of the questions you may have. We don’t and won’t judge you, we’re here to help you.
What if I come from a different faith background?
People who attend Covenant Church come from a wide variety of faith backgrounds – Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist, etc. We focus on Biblical truth and pursuing an active relationship with Jesus Christ… and you don’t have to be a member of a specific religious denomination to do that.
How long are the services?
No matter which campus you attend, each service is around 75 to 85 minutes long. We recommend you arrive about 20 minutes ahead of time, so that you can find convenient parking, get your children checked in and find seating.
How big is Covenant church?
Our church, founded in 1976, has grown into a healthy and vibrant congregation. We have four locations throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area, find the location nearest you.
Do I have to dress up to attend a service?
No. Dressing up is not a requirement to worship with us at Covenant. Some do wear their “Sunday best” but you’re also likely to see someone in jeans and a t-shirt. We believe the most important part about Sunday morning is showing up, ready to worship God. So, come as you are!
What if I don't have a Bible?
Check out the YouVersion Bible App on your smart phone. This free app allows you to read the Bible, share verses on social networks and bookmark your favorite scriptures once you discover them!
What is tithing? Do I have to give money to the church?
Tithing is giving a percentage of your income to God through the ministry of the local church. All Christian churches receive financial offerings and rely on these to function, as it is based on Scripture. We believe in the Biblical principal of it; however, no one is ever told they “have to” give or is pressured to even give at all. It is up to each person to decide.
Do you water baptize?
Yes. To get more information about our next steps, click here.
What is a Small Group?
Sometimes meaningful relationships are hard to find. That’s why Small Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you. Regardless of your age, interest, or location, we have a Small Group for you!
What is Next Steps?
We believe here at Covenant Church, God has a plan, a place and a purpose for you in His Church. Whether you have recently committed your life to Jesus, or have served in church for years, we have a next step for you. Let us help you connect with other believers, serve on a Dream Team, grow in your spiritual development, and equip you to make a difference. We encourage you to take one step toward the plan and purpose God has called you to.You can learn more and get registered here.
