Covenant Community is a family. We desire to be the kind of family that loves deeply, grows steadily, as we intentionally pursue God’s best together. We understand that we are created to worship God and enjoy Him forever…but we do not have to wait until we are in Heaven to begin! Each week we gather to celebrate the God who has rescued and restored us. That is why we call it a worship service. Our services are not about us. Our services are about our incredible God.
Every service is different at CCE, but we always take time to hear from the Word of God. We believe the Bible is the ultimate source of truth. It reveals the character and nature of God and His plan for our salvation from our sin. In every sermon, we seek to glorify God by reveal the gospel and what it means for us today.

Missional Community Groups
A missional community is a group of people who are making the effort to live in authentic relationships with the mission of sharing and demonstrating the gospel to others. Our missional communities are designed to equip believers for action. We love to study God's perfect Word. We seek to understand it and apply it to our lives. It is true that hearing and studying God's Word produces real faith. However, we believe that real faith produces real action. Our groups are not about endlessly gaining information. Instead, our groups are about transformation. They are about the supernatural transformation of our own lives, the lives of the people we know, and the community we love.
Our hope is that as we learn to live in missional community the gospel will multiply through our community and transform Gilmer forever. These communities are for all ages and provide biblical inter-generational discipleship just as God intended. These communities provide pastoral care, sharpening and comforting relationships, and gospel-driven apprenticeship in the faith. There is a place for every individual and every family.
If you or your whole family would like to be a part of a missional community please let us know. We have a seat on the couch saved for you and your family.
Our student ministry team partners with our parents to teach, model, and equip students to follow Jesus. Our student ministry is called, "Involved." It is for students grades 7th-12th. Involved is a gospel centered community of students who desire to grow in their faith. Students are accepted for who they are and challenged to allow God to transform them into the likeness of Christ. Our student ministry provides life-changing truth from God's Word, intentional events that lead to growth, and a safe fun-loving family to begin a life of "involvement" in God's work.
Wednesday Evenings at 6pm – 7:30pm (Location: NGCA Gym)
Sunday Night Guys and Girls Small Groups 6pm -7:30pm (Location: NGCA)
We love kids. We love their parents too. We believe God has given us the privilege of partnering with parents who are passionate about discipling their children. Kids are learning fast. It is so important to introduce them to our big, powerful, and loving God right from the start. Our children's ministry team is committed to equipping parents to fulfill their God-given responsibility to disciple their kids while providing fun, safe, and biblical opportunities for kids to fall in love with our Father in heaven. We work as hard as we can along side our parents to help kids grow in their understanding of the Gospel and what it means to have a relationship with Jesus.
