at our core.
This spring we are exploring our values at First Covenant. Our Leadership and Ministry teams have worked over the last year to define and refine our values. Values are the things at the core of our identity that form and shape our life together. They provide the guardrails for making decisions, and leading us forward as we live out our Identity, Mission, and Vision as Christ followers at First Covenant Church of Saint Paul. Each week in worship we will take a closer look at these values and how they shape our lives and guide us forward as Kingdom people on the East Side of Saint Paul.

HISTORY AND THEOLOGY OF PIETISM AND WHY IT MATTERS IN 2021 - WEDNESDAYS AT 6:30PM (APRIL ONLY)
Join us for this learning lab (sponsored by Awaken Covenant Church) where Dr. Michelle Clifton-Soderstrom of North Park Seminary will explore the history of the Pietist movement, which birthed the Evangelical Covenant Church, and the theological commitments that make it unique. As we explore what's at the core of our identity, we find that Pietism is right there. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more together. There's nothing to prep for this event, just register and you'll receive the Zoom link.
