We know visiting a new church can be intimidating.
Whether you've never been to church a day in your life, or you've been attending one all your life- you probably have a few questions. We've done our best to answer some of them before you walk through the door.
Where do we meet?
Our church is located at 4550 Centennial Lane, Ellicott City, Maryland, 21042, and we share the property with the Soccer Association of Columbia (SAC). Follow the long driveway until you see our campus on the right.
When do we meet?
Our worship service takes place every Sunday at 10:30am and lasts for about 50-60 minutes. We also have a virtual service that premieres on the TCACP YouTube channel each Sunday at 10:30am.
What do I wear?
There is no dress code for attending services at Covenant. Some attendees dress casually and some dress up. You are free to come exactly as you are, so wear whatever makes you comfortable. Due to COVID-19 concerns, you will be asked to wear a mask the entire time you are inside the facility. Masks will be provided in the event you forget yours at home.
What happens when I arrive?
In light of safety concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken extra precautions to ensure your worship experience at TCACP is handled with tremendous care. When you first arrive, you will be directed to your parking spot by one of our parking lot attendants. Campus signs and volunteers will direct you to the front door where a greeter will welcome you to the church. You will enter into the lobby where hand sanitizing stations will be available for your use. You will be ushered into the auditorium and directed to your seat(s). The auditorium is designed to seat 50% of its normal capacity with two empty chairs between each party and plenty of room to exit, if necessary. Should you need to use the restroom at any point during your experience, restrooms will be available at 50% capacity. Because of safety protocol, the coffee lounge and water fountains will be unavailable.

What about my kids?
We have a separate worship experience for kids K-5th grade that runs concurrently to our Sunday morning service. This takes place outdoors in a safe and closely monitored environment, and your children will be able to experience biblical teaching, worship music, and fun activities.
For families with infants, a nursing room will be available for use. In addition to the service, your children are invited to join our Children’s Director at 9am on Sundays for a Children’s Ministry Zoom call. Email Joyce Feghali for more information.
What are services like?
At the beginning of each service, our band leads the congregation in a couple of songs.
After this first set of music, you will experience Biblical teaching that impacts your life no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.
Because we believe that the most important part of the service is how people connect and respond to God, we have created an extended time of response led by the band after the message to allow you time and space to discern what it is God has been saying to you.
At the conclusion of the service, you will exit through the side doors into the parking lot where you can interact with other members. The front patio will be available for you as well.
Additional COVID-19 Protocol
In preparation for your visit, please follow the link HERE to register your attendance. This will allow us to monitor attendees and ensure we maintain a healthy seating capacity for each person present.
Additionally, we ask that if you demonstrate any symptoms (fever, flu, respiratory, etc) 48 hours prior to a service that you refrain from attending an in-person gathering. We do, however, encourage you to join us on YouTube for our online worship experience at 10:30am on Sundays.
