Covenant Presbyterian Church

Rooted in Tradition... Reaching To Tomorrow!

Covenant Church is a vital community of Christians of all ages and occupations located near downtown Scranton. We are an active congregation with an ever growing Sunday School; an energetic youth group; choirs for adults, youth and children (hand bells, too); hands-on service projects in our community; and so many chances to come together for fun and food! We are blessed and pleased that our beautiful historic building is home to a busy daycare (Infant Care Program) and other community oriented programs. Our Presbyterian roots keep us grounded in Worship and the Word of God and ever desiring to serve each other and our neighbors as Christ teaches us.

Our Mission

To be an instrument for
God’s transformation of individuals
and society by
Welcoming
all who come our way;
Seeking
those who have not come;
Teaching
the message of  Christ’s Love
in word and deed;
Expressing gratitude
to God through stewardship and worship; and
Caring and Praying
for those in need of
emotional and spiritual support, direct service or
partners in their struggle
for justice both locally and
throughout the world.
