College

Disciples who make disciples who make disciples.

Why “disciples who make disciples who make disciples”?

Covenant College Ministry is committed to discipling college-age people within the walls of the local church. And we are engaged in equipping others to disciple people outside of the church at PCC, ECU, and the medical schools. Our most magnificent vision, though, is to deploy disciple-makers into all the nations making disciples that we may never see on this side of eternity.

COMMUNITY

We believe that every follower of Jesus Christ has a transforming community waiting for them and a place in God’s mission for the local church. Take a moment and look through our opportunities.

Merge is a monthly gathering at Drew’s house that is designed specifically for high school seniors. If life is a highway, then twelfth grade is an on-ramp. As graduation approaches, students are looking at life-changing decisions, stressful shifts in family dynamics, and the pressure that comes with a year full of “lasts”. They are hungry for a community that will come alongside them, remind them that they are not alone, and help them get up to speed so that they can transition to life after graduation smoothly. Starting in September, seniors in high school will gather on the third Monday of each month for a homemade dinner and conversation about life during and after the 12th grade.

WORSHIP

Weekly Worship

Saturdays @ 5:30pm
Sundays @ 9:15 & 11:00am*

We worship every weekend at the Winterville campus as a family. We could not create anything more powerful or beautiful than the local church. It’s where we:

  • Meet all the generations of our church to worship as a family.
  • Worship through the gift of music, Word, prayer, and sacraments.
  • Are challenged and changed by the Word of God.
  • Discover our next step as part of God’s mission in the local church.

That’s why we invite all college-age people to take their place in the mission and leadership of the church.

NEED A RIDE TO CHURCH?

IT’S ON US! Let us pay for your ride to Sunday worship. We will pick up your Uber / Lyft fee so you can worship with us. It’s just this simple:

  • Arrange for Uber or Lyft to pick you up for worship.
  • When you get home, email college@covenant.cc.
  • Give us your name and mobile phone number.
  • Attach a screenshot of your receipts and hit send.

We will reimburse your account that week. It’s our pleasure.

SIT WITH US

You can come to any service. If you’re looking for other college-age people, the majority of our college students join us at 11:00 am service and gather in the sanctuary to the right side of the stage. Sit with us, you might get pulled into a lunch bunch afterward or even to one our monthly free college luncheons.
