What Are People Saying About Alpha?

Alpha was a great experience for me to get more in-depth in my relationship with God! It helps you understand the different aspects of prayer and reading your bible! It also was a great place for me to meet others that were my age and it helped me meet new friends along the way!

-Kennedy Phillips
Summer Alpha 2020

Alpha was such a blessing. Especially in the middle of a pandemic that caused so much unknown. Alpha made it known that I am loved by Jesus and my community in Alpha.

The Gathering

The Gathering is simply put, a gathering of Young Adults. Each week we meet at the Covenant café to grow in community and enjoy God. Towards the end of each gathering, we will break-off into smaller groups to dig-in to a passage of scripture, or discuss a relevant topic through the lens of scripture. Most of us crave to have deep conversations and tackle questions we have about our faith. The Gathering is a casual space to do just that. If this description doesn’t sound too exciting then you’ll want to come for the games. And bring a friend!

Thursdays @ 7:30pm in the Covenant Café
4015 Corey Road, (Building A)

“I love worshipping at Covenant because I know I’m surrounded by family. We laugh together, cry together and eat together. Nothing gives me greater joy than praising God with the people he’s placed in my life.”
Rachel Koenig, Class of 2021


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

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.



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 (Stage-left to those who speak theater). Sit with us, you might get pulled into a lunch bunch afterward or even to one our monthly free college luncheons.

“It’s such an incredible opportunity to work with kids! When God gives the talent and passion to pour into young lives, go for it! You will never be left unfulfilled.”

Whether you’re in college or college-age, discover how people like you are finding their place in the life-blood of God’s disciple-making mission at Covenant Church.

What is college-age?

That is a slippery question today. Here are some of the people groups we include at Covenant College Ministry.

  • People dual-enrolled at PCC.
  • People attending PCC and/or ECU.
  • People attending college away from Pitt County.
  • People taking a gap year.
  • People entering directly into the workforce after high school.
  • People who are looking for direction beyond high school.

Covenant College Ministry is committed to helping this rising generation become fully engaged into the life-blood of the vision and mission of Covenant Church.

How else can we serve you?

Covenant Church is quickly becoming the church home for college-age people from across town and the world. It happens everytime someone finds their place in God’s mission at Covenant. Contact me and let me know how I can help you find yours.
