The church's main office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30-11:45 AM and 1:00-4:45 PM. Please note: Since Sunday is a working day for our pastors and many other staff, they often take Friday as their Sabbath. We always have at least one pastor here on campus every Friday, and the Pastor on Call is also reachable at 704-708-6101 in case of emergency.
In the event of inclement weather, we will communicate office and activity closings on our website, through social media, and news stations.
Our Operations Department schedules thousands of reservations a year for every room on the property. We have a master calendar which shows availability of rooms and other areas. Each of the ministry area administrators is trained to view this calendar. However, to reserve a location, please contact Jill Joyner at email@example.com.
The Property Committee has the responsibility for setting usage guidelines under the authority of the Session. These guidelines are available from the Operations Department along with reservation request forms.
* NOTE: Before planning an event on campus, you must obtain a ministry sponsor and work through our Event Planning Checklist.

Our Event Planning Checklist includes contacts for planning a ministry event on campus.

As Christ Covenant Church grows, it is important that a process exists to ensure that our individual ministries are heading in the same direction as the global vision for the church. If you would like to start a new ministry or revive one, you will need to gain approval from the Executive Leadership Team. First check the on-campus ministries and missions lists under our Ministries tab on our website to determine if an existing ministry fits the need you have identified. Then complete the New or Revived Ministry Application and submit it to Senior Director of Church Administration Sandy Spitz for consideration.
To obtain the guest network key code in advance of a meeting or gathering on campus in which wireless internet is needed, contact Steve Hicks (704-814-1005) with at least one week's notice. The key must be given to you in advance, as we may not have IT staff here at the time of your meeting. Many, but not all, locations on campus are set up for wireless access. Please check wireless availability when making your room reservation with the Operations Department.
All items found in the sanctuary in the morning will be taken to the Information Desk in the main lobby and will remain there through the evening service. On Monday morning, all items are moved to the lost & found area in the church office. You may check for lost items by calling 704-847-3505 (Monday-Friday 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM). A list of found items is maintained by the church receptionist and a copy is sent to the Information Desk each Sunday. When items remain unclaimed for two months, they are handled in two ways: (1) Bibles will be released to Outreach & Missions and sent with a short-term mission team as a gift to leave on the field with a national pastor or teacher, and (2) other items are given to the Matthews HELP Center.
Personal property brought onto the Christ Covenant campus (including all buildings and fields) or taken on church or ministry-related trips of any kind, for any reason, or during any event or visit related to the church or its ministries is not covered by the church’s insurance and the church cannot be responsible for any losses, damage, or loss reimbursement. The church encourages individuals to be vigilant with their property and make themselves aware of the provisions of their own insurance policies that may cover personal property out of the home.
The Discovery Class is the membership class for Christ Covenant Church. This class is required for those adults and students (9th grade and above) who are seeking to join Christ Covenant Church. Each class is 12 weeks. After you complete the classes, you'll be scheduled to meet with one of our church Elders, and then if you are ready to become a member you'll be received publicly along with other new members during a Sunday morning service. (Typically scheduled once each quarter.)
For more information about the Discovery Class, please click here.
If you have questions, please contact Mary Jo Culver (704-814-1039).
Childcare providers in our nurseries on Sunday and during the week must be C.A.R.E. certified. Additional requirements apply for volunteers involved in driving or staying overnight with our youth. The C.A.R.E. program is a proactive plan to protect our children, youth, and disabled adults against harm and injury. All volunteers are required to go through C.A.R.E. training to become a volunteer and the training must be repeated every five years. The training may be completed in person or online. Contact the Care Coordinator at email@example.com for more information.
In the event that inclement weather forces the closing of church offices or the cancellation of Sunday services or other activities, the following media will be used to communicate the church's decision:
- Internet: Information will be posted and updated daily on our church website's home page.
- Phone: A voice message will be recorded on the church phone system at 704-847-3505 or 704-844-8619 with information on any delay or closure. If the normal voicemail message is active, the facilities are open or no decision has been made about delay or closure. If the church phone system is out of service an alternate weather line is available at 704-321-3678.
- TV: Information will be posted on WBT, WCNC, WSOC, and News 14 Carolina and their radio affiliates.
