What can you expect when you visit Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church? Here are some straightforward answers to some common questions we’ve been asked.
What do people wear?
People wear to church what you might expect people to wear to church in Tucson — a mix. The pastor wears a suit, as do a few others. Most dress business casual.
How long is the service?
Usually about an hour and a half at the upper end.
Except for the last Sunday of the month, we have two services each week – one in the morning and one in the evening. The services are different from one another, and we encourage everyone to attend both.
Yes. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper each week, alternating between our morning and evening services.
Can I take the Lord’s Supper?
If you are a baptized member, in good standing, in a church that professes the gospel of God’s free grace in Jesus Christ and are seeking to live a godly life by faith in him, then we invite you to join with us in taking the Lord’s Supper. If, however, this does not describe you, please do not partake. Instead, use the time to examine your heart before God. You can bring any questions you may have to one of the elders or the pastor.
Is there childcare during worship?
Though we do not offer formal childcare, we do provide a cry room where you can hear and see the service. This provides a nice place to go when you must leave with a child.
Is there Sunday School?
After worship we have a fellowship time, which is followed by 45-minute age-appropriate classes. These tend to fluctuate a bit depending on the number of students and teachers we have at a given time. Right now there are three classes for younger children and another class for older children and adults.
What if I speak Spanish?
¡No hay problema! Every week, we have Spanish Bibles and bulletins available. And if you let us know, we can also provide a translator for you.
