Upcoming Events


Sunday Worship, August 24, 10:30am

While almost 100 adults, youth and children enjoy God’s beautiful creation, sharing in fun and fellowship together at First Covenant Church’s All Church Retreat this weekend at Covenant Pines Bible Camp, back in St. Paul we're fortunate to have Tom Cameron, our new executive pastor, serve as preacher. Tom brings to First Covenant a wealth of experience from his 30+ years as executive pastor at Jesus People Church in Chicago, IL--including preaching gifts that bring alive the Word of God. We are blessed indeed!

First Covenant Church Annual Meeting, Sunday, August 31, 10:30am - 11:45am

Join us for a unique worship experience that combines the celebration of God's faithfulness as we come to the close of the 2013-14 fiscal year and as we prayerfully, wisely and courageously look ahead to the 2014-15 year. We are integrating facets of the annual meeting into the context of worship so that we can together prayerfully consider the needs and opportunities before us as a community of Christ followers. The business side of church can be quite interesting-even exciting!

At this year’s annual meeting we will:

  • Highlight and celebrate accomplishments of the past program/fiscal year.
  • Perform the crucial tasks of approving the budget and ballot.
  • Share the plan to transition our governance from council model to leadership model.
  • Outline plans for the upcoming program year.
  • Whether you are a long time member or a first time visitor, we invite you to join us as we gather for praise, prayer, song, inspiration, and seeking God's leading in the year before us.

    For more information, contact Pastor Anne or Rachel Hanks, moderator.
