Welcoming Covenant Players

“This interdenominational drama unit comes as a ministry of faith, desiring to touch and teach in their unique manner of presenting the gospel. They believe the greatest message one can communicate is the love of God and the Good News of Jesus Christ, and there is perhaps no more powerful way to communicate that message than through the medium of drama,” a spokesman said.
Since 1963, Covenant Players has pioneered the modern use of live drama as a communications resource for the church. With more than 3,000 plays in the Covenant Players’ repertoire, they can target almost any theme and can bring a life-changing message of hope to any age group. They also perform for schools, clubs, nursing homes and other groups, the spokesman said.
The church welcomes everyone to this special performance, according to the pastor, the Rev. Mel Jacobs.
