God’s work in establishing Covenant Community Church began in a small group home Bible study in 1979. The group had actually been meeting for a time prior to that, but responding to the Holy Spirit’s leading, the church was chartered that year.
With about thirty members in attendance, meetings were held in Yukon’s Old Czech Dance Hall. The commitment was to disciplemaking and small group Bible studies, most of which were held in homes. There was also a strong emphasis on missions and the desire to take the Gospel to the world. The name Covenant Community Church was chosen to signify the desire to reach and serve the community for Christ.
By 1982, the congregation had grown to 250 members and had moved to its present location. This marked the beginning of a plan to build facilities that would realize the goal of serving the community. Today this includes a spacious sanctuary, educational buildings (which also serve Southwest Covenant School,) and a growing sports and recreation complex. As much as possible these facilities are open and available to the public.
Covenant draws members from the greater Oklahoma City area. Being non-denominational, the church is made up of people from many different backgrounds and walks of life. The common bond is a shared love for Christ, His Word and the world of people around us.
