Our History

Christ Covenant Church was born out of prayer and a realization that the east side of Michigan does not have an abundance of confessional, reformed churches. From the start our group has attracted people fro the Tri-Cities (Midland, Bay City, Saginaw) and beyond.   

In the summer of 2003 a small group of people began to gather on Sunday evenings to discuss what a new church ought to look like.  By the end of that summer the group had grown to nearly thirty people.   It continued to meet during the fall and winter holding its first worship service in March 2004.  In November 2005 Christ Covenant Church became a particular (self-governing church) when elders were installed.  In May of 2007 deacons were ordained and installed.

In our early years, we met in the building on the corner of Gordon and Grove Streets in Midland.  Due to structural issues with that building we had to move out in 2011.  For several years we used the youth center of another church in town.  In early 2016, we purchased the former Community of Christ building at 2821 Ashman Street.

 

In the summer of 2017, our congregation voted to affiliate with the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. We were officially received into that denomination in October 2017, in a service of recognition and installation conducted by the Presbytery of Michigan and Ontario.
