Worship at First Covenant

Worship at First Covenant is a key way we live into our intercultural and intergenerational values while we focus on the grace and goodness of God. Each element of worship, from the music to the words spoken, reflect the varied ages, ethnicities, and worship styles of our church family.

We intentionally gather as one congregation in one worship service in order to experience the diversity of worship together. We desire to bring to the worship time on Sunday mornings the whole of our lives as followers of Christ and as fellow pilgrims with one another. As we are connected with one another through the week, we come prepared to receive God’s word and to seek God’s blessing as a community.

We invite you to join us as we live the life of faith together.

We worship together regularly on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. We are worshipping both in person and live-streamed each Sunday. 


We have a wide variety of music ensembles who lead worship. Some lead weekly, others lead during a special service or occasion. 

If you'd like to be involved in one of our worship ensembles contact Richard Voth, Minister of Worship and Creative Arts.

Partner Worship Service

Frequently on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend the partner churches of First Covenant come together for a combined worship service. Each year is hosted by a different congregation and allows all who gather to experience their style of worship, while coming together for the shared purpose of worshipping the Lord and experiencing the rich diversity of our various communities. 

Outdoor Worship Services

Summers in Minnesota provide opportunities to gather together outside to worship, grow, and eat together. Weather permitting, First Covenant often worships outdoors in the summer on our lawn.
