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: Kingdom Man, by Tony Evans

Starts September 14, 2019

"When a man follows the principles of biblical manhood, those around him benefit from his leadership and care. Kingdom Man challenges and equips men to fully understand who they are made to be, as well as their responsibility over what God has given them. Kingdom Man provides concepts men can  follow that will help them, and  develop the character qualities of biblical manhood in their lives."

The Men's Ministry at FaithCov is dedicated to helping men chase after God in faith, action, and mind. They often lead improvement projects around the church, as well as undertake the immense job of putting the Christmas lights on our Community Christmas Tree and church building, and helping older church members with difficult home projects.

Location: Welcome Center at FaithCov.

Date and Time: Saturdays, 9:00-10:30am

Group Leader: Dave Tomashewski


For more information, please email Dave Tomashewski here.


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

    September 8-December 15

    The Psalms are a collection of praises and thanks to God , as well as instruction for Christians wanting to draw closer to God. Some of the Psalms are Messianic, and offer an amazing foreshadow of Jesus Christ. In Part 1, we will study the first two books of Psalms (Psalms 1-72). Each week's study stands on its own, so if you miss the first ones, you will enjoy the ones you attend. However, you will not want to miss Psalm 22 (Jesus on the cross) on September 29, or Psalms 23 and 24 (Jesus the Shepherd and King) on October 6. This Winter, and Spring (2020), we will cover Psalms 73-150.

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

  • welcoming the stranger

    September 8- October 13

    Immigration is one of the most complex and controversial issues of our time. Everyone seems to agree: The United States' immigration system has some problems. But that's sometimes as far as the agreement goes, with discussions devolving into arguments over the best policy solutions. 

    Join with us as we discuss questions like:

       -Is immigration a threat or an opportunity?

       -What does the Bible say about immigration?

       -What should we do about people here illegally?

    Study guides are available in the Welcome Center (there is no book for this discussion class), and each week stands on its own; so join with us whenever you can.

  • What god's word says about

    marriage and singleness

    Coming October 20

    October 20-December 15

    Join with us to find out exactly what God's Word says about marriage, singleness, fidelity, divorce, monogamy, sexual substitutions, and how Godly marriage is a symbol for Jesus' marriage to the church.

    This class will meet in the Library.
