What will the people in my group be like?

Groups are made up of people just like you!  Most of the people that attend the Covenant worship gathering on Sunday participate in GroupLife at sometime during the week.

When will my group meet?

Groups meet regularly, either weekly or bimonthly.  Each meeting is just 60-90 minutes long, but it will make a big impact on your life!

I have children, are there groups that have childcare?

Yes!  The groups that meet Sunday morning have childcare.  Other groups may have childcare as well.

Where do I find a group that's right for me?

You can view the available groups below. There are groups that meet throughout Ellicott City and Columbia, as well as online.
