June 24th: Worship Leader Dean Phelps

A little about Dean…

Part blues and part old school country, seasoned with a pinch of gospel, Kentucky-born guitarist Dean Phelps combines the rhythmic beat of thumbpick guitar with a soulful vocal style. He stirs his guitar and voice into a repertoire of songs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, creating a style that is reminiscent of performers like Merle Travis and Doc Watson.

Dean has earned both local and national recognition for his guitar playing, winning the National Thumbpicking Guitar Contest at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Ark., and being named thumbpick guitar champion at the Indiana Picking and Fiddling Championship.

Dean’s latest solo release, Smiles – Live from Red Barn Radio, is a compilation of live recordings from his appearances on the Red Barn Radio program. Dean also teamed up with Brian Keith Wallen on a seven-song EP, Mountain Roads.

Picking the Faith, released in 2012, marries the toe-tapping guitar beat of the thumbpicking style with traditional hymns and gospel music that he learned in his youth. His other CD titles include: Give Us a Song, which continues to receive radio airplay across the U.S. and Europe; This Old House, an exploration of Dean’s musical influences with producer Steve Creech; and his first recording, Going Over Home, released in 1997.

We hope you’ll make plans to come join us this Sunday at 10:45 am!

You are welcome here!

Thursday Breakfast NEW TIME!

How about breakfast? Why not?

We have partnering with the Breakfast Ministry of Covington to provide food for those in the community who would otherwise go without the most important meal of the day.   Come and eat with the community on Thursday morning. The meal is free and served in our fellowship hall. (Use entrance in the back of the church)

Looking for a place to volunteer and connect with the community?

This is a great way to plug into the heart of Covington! Be the hands of Christ by meeting the needs of the ones who need it the most.  Join us on Thursday morning and talk to Tom or Elaine to find out more about this opportunity to serve.

NEW TIME!  Breakfast is 7:30 am to 8:30 am.

New Welcome Statement


We extend a special welcome to those who are single, divorced, remarried, gay, trans, filthy rich, dirt poor, y no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds. We welcome you if you can sing like Taylor Swift or if you can’t carry a tune in bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woke up or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re Catholic, Baptist, Muslim, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s baptism. We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like organized religion (we’ve been there too). If you blew all your offering money at the casino, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, can’t work, can’t spell, or came because grandma is in town and she wanted to go to church. We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts…and you! (If any part of this statement offends you…you’re welcome too!)
