What to Expect

Welcome to Covenant Presbyterian Church of the Low Country!

What can I expect on a Sunday at Covenant Presbyterian Church of the Low Country?  And what about my children?

We are so glad you asked! It can be intimidating to walk into a new place of worship with unfamiliar faces and unexpected traditions or customs. We want you to feel welcome and at-home so that you can be free to worship the Lord Jesus Christ without any hindrances and to be blessed in His presence and truth. 

The Lord's Day at Covenant Presbyterian

Prayer hour 9:30am. We gather together to pray corporately.

Lord's Day morning worship service 10:30am Our worship service can be characterized as reverential, orderly, and full of truth and joy. The weekly worship bulletin is helpful in following the order of worship as we join together corporately as a body to worship our Triune God.

Coffee and refreshments after worship. Usually someone has brought snacks that we all share with a hot beverage or refreshing bottle of water. We welcome visitors during this time and greet one another after worship.

The Word of God is central to our worship. We preach it, pray it, sing it, and read it. We trust that God will bless the ordinary means of grace that He has provided to build up His Church: the Word, sacraments, and prayer. Our worship is simple, relying on the Holy Spirit to work powerfully in us as we worship according to God's Word.

Lord's Day evening worship service, 5:00pm. It is our joy to end the day as we began it, worshipping the Triune God. The evening service follows an order of worship as well, which is shown in the worship bulletin.

What about children?

Great question. We encourage the whole family to worship together when possible, and also understand young children may not be ready to sit through the service quietly.

During the worship services, a nursery room is provided for children ages 0-4, and older children worship in the pew with their families. Christ said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven" (Matt. 9:14). It is a joy for us to bring our children to be blessed by Him.
