What’s right about Church of the Covenant?

Church of the Covenant — Arlington, Virginia

What’s right about Church of the Covenant? We’ve got rhythm.

The church’s children’s drum ensemble and adult choir led worship together during our first-ever Kids Music Sunday on March 3. Our intergenerational worship leaders taught the congregation a special handshake to help pass the peace, added percussion to our hymns and performed a joint anthem together.

And the music isn’t stopping anytime soon! We’re passionate about finding new ways to keep God’s rhythm together and to use that music to get to know our neighbors. Last year, that has looked like a community karaoke party, pumpkin caroling and making music with our weekly afterschool Christian education program. In the months ahead, we’ll keep the beat with a s’mores and campfire sing-a-long, a neighborhood arts worship service and a music and meditation hike. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by — and grab a drum.

— Billy Kluttz, community music and arts director
