Women's Covenant Group
Looking for a deep – spiritual – intelligent and confidential women’s group? Covenant may be for you! The word covenant means “agreement, commitment, promise” and covenant groups have been a part of the life of this church for decades. Covenant groups are small groups which form to do spiritual study and support one another. Members choose a book to study, share leadership, and promise to pray for each other. One of the key components of a covenant group is confidentiality, as members share themselves with the group and deep relationships blossom. Laughter, tears, friendship and spiritual growth are all a part of covenant!
Attendance needs to be a priority to participate and grow in Covenant. Confidentiality is a must.
The morning Covenant Group gathers in Fireside beginning at 9:30-11:30am on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, from September through May. If you feel that you need and want to be involved in the life of Covenant, then please call Kim McGlynn at 248.644.2040 x138.

May 9: The Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead.

June 13: Lucky Boy, by Shanthi Sekaran.
Kirkus: "A superbly crafted and engrossing novel."
Two very different women reckon with pregnancy, childbirth, and the meaning of family in Berkeley, California.
