Cove United Methodist Church

Cove Church was founded in 1997 with a vision of serving our growing community with a strong biblical emphasis, a fresh contemporary style, and excellent ministries to children and youth. We have grown to over 800 in worship attendance each week and over 400 involved in C-groups.

Our Vision
To Be a Biblically Functioning Community.

Our Mission
To help people Discover a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and Develop and Demonstrate a Christ-like lifestyle.

Our Strategy The 3 C's-
Celebration Services
Cell Groups (Small Groups)
Call to Ministry

"... All the believers were together and had everything in common ... they continued to meet together...they broke bread together in their homes." Acts 2

Cove's Priority on Small Groups
Cove Church has become literally a Church of Small Groups. Our master plan for organizing the entire congregation calls for every adult member to be in one of our small groups called C-Groups. We are fast becoming a church where no one stands alone and we all stand together! Currently 80% of our adults are actively involved in a C-Group. This C-Group network is a strategic aspect of our Vision as a become a Biblically-functioning Community of Christ-followers just like the folks in Acts 2.

What is a C-Group?
The "C" stands for Christ, Cove, Cell, Community, Connected, Commitment and Church. Each C-Group is made up of 6-16 adults that meet 2-4 times monthly for about 2 hours in the relaxed setting of homes. C-Groups usually kick off in January and September then meet for 12-24 months. During this time you can really get close to the others in your C-Group. Each group maintains a balance of three key ingredients: authentic Christ-centered relationships, relevant Bible discussions and informal prayer for one another.

Being in a C-group gives you the opportunity to grow in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ, get to know and love a few people well and stay plugged in to the exciting ministries around Cove Church.

C-Groups ... a whole new way of being and doing Church together!
