Covenant Arts

Throughout our building you will see the talents and the offerings of past and current members in the form of artistic expression.  Wood carvings, charcoal drawings, quilts, banners, and stained glass help tell the story of who we are and from where we have come from.

Below you will find a sample of our artistic history and the story behind the creation.
