Our Services

What are services like?
Services at Covenant are held in a historic church building built in 1892. We follow a liturgical format, but it doesn't have the feel of "going through the motions." Instead, what you will find is a focus on the glory of God. From a time of confession of sin to the freedom of the gospel to the worship of our Triune God, you will experience at time of authentic worship totally infused with the Word of God. Our music is acoustic, reverent and worshipful. You can't help but enjoy singing along. The sermon is expositional preaching from the Bible. If you really want to be taught the Bible instead of hearing stories, you have found your home. Above all, our worship services are dedicated to and focused on the glory of God.

What is the community like?
Our church community is multigenerational, ranging from new born babies to senior adults. You will meet young families and retirees, working professionals and college students, and everyone else in between. You will meet a group of people who are truly passionate about the gospel and who truly desire to glorify God in their everyday lives. You will feel welcome the minute you walk through the door and enjoy fellowship with some of the most sincere Christians in Fort Smith.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Whether you are a Christian or not, you are invited to Covenant. Whether you are skeptical about Christianity or simply wanting to learn more, we invite you to visit and hear more about how God can use a church like Covenant to share the amazing story of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
