life groups


Life Groups are the heartbeat of true Christian community.

They are about connection doing life together.

"...Encourage each other, and build one another up."  (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

"...Care for one another." (1 Corinthians 12:25)

Group consist of 8-18 adults who meet together regularly in homes or at the church to encourage each other, study God's Word together, and do life together.


When you go to a Life Group you can expect:

  • Community Time: Get to know each other over food and casual conversation.
  • Bible or Book Study: Get to know God and His Word through studying His Word, encouraging each other in our faith journey, and individual ministries.
  • Prayer: Bring our joys and needs to the Lord together, and watch for His provision.


We have a variety of Life Groups to choose from. If you'd like help getting connected, or more information about Groups, call or text Tim Pryor at 740-548-9777, or email us at

women ministries

Current Study: Shades of Light, by Sharon Garlough-Brown

Starts Wednesday, Oct 2 at 7.30p

Shades of Light is a study of mental illness. Author Sharon Garlough Brown provides an in-depth look at depression through the eyes of Wren, a twenty-something woman, and through the eyes of those around Wren. It can be read independently of the other books in the Sensible Shoes series; the story does not depend on having read the other books.

Women of the Covenant are committed to advancing God's Kingdom by equipping women to grow, serve, and reach out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Combining local Bible and book studies, service, and fellowship opportunities with denominational projects that advocate for women who have been abused (AVA), that support education for girls in Congo, that fight human trafficking, they connect women in transformational relationships and unite them in Christ to impact our world.

For more information, please email Phyllis Van here.

Men's ministry

Current Study:

Holy Spirit: Activating God's Power in Your Life

Starting October 26, 2019

From the distributor's website--"Exciting, revolutionary power is available exclusively to you as a Christian. It's the supernatural power to transform human nature, to enable you to be salt and light to your world, to help you face any crisis, and to bring about a dramatic but peaceful revolution in those around you. It's the power residing  within you, a gift from God--the power of the Holy Spirit. With prayerful reverence and focused wisdom, Billy Graham puts an understandable face on this mysterious third Person of the Trinity. The Holy Spirit will open your eyes anew to see how the Spirit can transform your life and give you power "to be truly good" and to "live victoriously."

Books are available for $12 (payable to Dave Tomashewski)

Sundays at FaithCov., 9:15am

At FaithCov, the centrality of the Word of God is one of our Healthy Missional Markers, 

as well as one of our Core values. All of our values come from what we discern from the Word of God. 

Throughout the year, we offer several Bible Study groups geared toward helping adults learn more about God and deepen their faith.

  • Psalms part 2

    January 5- May 15, 2020

    The Psalms are a collection of praises and thanks to the Lord, as well as instruction for the Christian wanting to grow closer to God. Some of the Psalms are Messianic, and offer an amazing foreshadowing of Jesus Christ. Psalm 110 is one of those Messianic Psalms, and even quoted by Jesus.

    In the Fall of 2019 we covered Psalms 1-72. Now, in Part 2, we will cover Psalms 73-150.

    Each weeks' study stands on its own- so even if you miss the first ones, you will enjoy the ones you attend as we look for Jesus in the Psalms

    This study will be led by Bob Berry, and meets in the Fellowship Hall at FaithCov from 9.15-10.15a, during our Discipleship Hour.

  • Ambassadors in the making

    January 5- March 22, 2020

    The Parable of the Prodigal Son speaks of the wayward son coming to his right mind while working among pigs. Unfortunately, many people do  not have a right mind to come to because they have not had Godly people in their lives to teach them. Words like faith, hope, and love don't have much meaning to people unless someone had provided them with examples. 

    This class will equip us to be God's Ambassadors in a dark world.

    This class will be led by Greg Allenby, and will meet in the Library from 9.15-10.15a during our Discipleship Hour.
