Covenant Groups

Covenant groups are a great way to build lasting relationships with fellow congregants and a deeper connection to the church. Eight to twelve members agree (or covenant) to meet once or twice a month to reflect on the church’s monthly themes, share their spiritual paths, and enjoy fellowship. Some covenant groups have developed such a strong bond that they have met for years.

If you’d like to join a covenant group, complete the covenant group interest form. For more information, contact the Covenant Group Committee (ascu.covenantgroups@gmail.com).

Download the Covenant Group manual.

Each month, we'll upload the guide for that month's theme onto this page. You'll find the links to those guides in the right-hand column.
