Wesleyan Covenant Renewal Begin the year with us as we celebrate a Wesleyan Covenant Renewal Service!

The Covenant Renewal Service was introduced in 1775 by John Wesley as an important part of spiritual life in the Methodist Societies. This service was a time for Methodists to gather in a time of self-examination, reflection, and dedication, giving up themselves and renewing covenant with God. Repentance through confession and commitment was a key focus of the service, demanding humility from those willing to submit themselves to the dynamic words of the liturgy. The covenant renewal service was observed annually by Wesley’s Methodist Societies, typically on the Sunday nearest January 1st.

The Covenant Renewal Service is a way of setting a fresh start for the new year by asking for God’s grace, forgiveness, and direction for the new year. The heart of the service is the Covenant Prayer, when we renew our commitment to God.

We hope you will join us for this meaningful time together as we begin 2017!
