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.
