We are faithful members of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A, and, through it, participate in the worldwide fellowship of Christian Churches. Our purpose is to glorify God through worship, education, and service to others.
Established in 1956, we are an open and caring congregation, outwardly involved, as a faithful Christian witness to God's love.
All are welcome. Please come visit us, ask us questions, and join us if you are looking for a church home. Membership is open to all who love God and believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Faith calls us to protect our loved ones, protect our neighbors, and protect and strengthen our community.
Relying on faith and wisdom, we have returned to in-person worship following CDC guidelines for communities of faith.
We are still streaming the 11:00 service on Facebook live. Please join us for worship either in-person or online this Sunday.
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always, and endures through every circumstance.

We are so happy to welcome our new pastor, the Reverend Doctor Richard McDuffie. Rick recently retired from full-time ministry after over 33 years as an ordained pastor most recently as pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Fayetteville.
Rick and his wife Debbie, a retired teacher and school administrator, have lived on their farm in Harnett County near Benson for over 30 years. They have three daughters and seven grandchildren. Their oldest daughter Sara, and her husband Mike, live in Charleston, S.C. Their other daughters, Faith, and her husband Simone, and Catherine, and her husband Dan, live in England.
Rick grew up and began his ministry in the Baptist church. After 18 years as an ordained minister, his faith journey led him to make a change and tackle the work to become a minister in the Presbyterian church. As he says, that was almost twenty years ago so this is not his first rodeo!
As those of you who have met Rick or been a part of worship recently know, he is an accomplished musician and loves music. His singing and guitar are a big part of his ministry and joy!
Come join us, meet Rick and see the great things that are happening at Covenant...and bring a friend.
