About Covenant Cafe
Covenant Cafe takes place on occasional Sundays between our morning services. During this time, we hope to host a space for our church to come together to listen and dialogue around topics that impact us as in this season. These times may include continued reflections from our sermon series, but the main purpose is to listen to each other and share together. While the time is brief, we believe this can be the opening to transformational dialogue for the future.
August 27: Our Stories of Immigration
We want to raise the awareness of the challenges and opportunities that immigrants face in our country. Come hear and respond to the voices of some in our church who are 1st generation immigrants and discuss ways we can be more inclusive of our immigrant neighbors in our community.

May 21: A Christian Response to Mass Incarceration
Our Covenant Denominational leaders have encouraged our churches to listen and respond to the situation of our growing prison population and its connection to racial disparity in America. Come listen to some insights that we have found helpful on this topic and engage in dialogue with others from FCC for understanding, prayer, and considering how all Christians can faithfully keep following Jesus in his love for those in prison.
