Christ Covenant marks anniversary with homecoming, much reflection
“It was an amazing experience, and it was a milestone event for sure,” said current lead pastor, the Rev. Seth Hammond.
“It was kind of like a homecoming,” said Teresa Pratt, Christ Covenant’s director of media and design.
“Yes, some people came back to celebrate with us,” Hammond added. “We wanted to celebrate big because God has done a lot of big things through His church and through His people.”
One of those who returned was founding pastor, the Rev. Jim Barnes, who in August 1994 was called by Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church to be a planter for Christ Covenant.
“There are no words to say how much I miss this church,” Barnes said during the service Aug. 18. “I’m sure I will never find another church like this.”
