Summer Sunday Worship

Each summer, Covenant Harbor hosts a Summer Sunday Worship series that is open to the public. Come and worship in our beautiful setting and enjoy a day at the lake. Summer Sundays are a great “first experience” of camp, and a place to invite your friends to great worship.

The intergenerational Sunday morning worship services have engaging preaching and celebratory worship music. Service starts at 10:30am. After the service, people may buy a grilled lunch on the grounds for $6.50 and swim until 4:00pm.

If you have a camper registered to start a week of camp on a Sunday, come early and enjoy worship and the afternoon with your camper before their camp week begins.

End of Summer Worship Celebration with Mark and Terri Reed, short devotional by Mark Reed

Mark and Terri Reed from Rockford, IL, will be joining us for another great summer of worship!

After Summer Sunday Worship, stay and purchase a delicious lunch at the Lakeside Cafe!

Lakeside Cafe will feature an amazing selection of high-quality grilled beef and turkey burgers, sausages, and a vegetarian option along with every imaginable condiment. We also offer fresh fruit, chips, and ice-cold beverages.

In the afternoon following Summer Sunday Worship, stay on camp grounds to enjoy some activities! Whether you are staying to check in a camper for the upcoming camp week or just looking for some fun things to extend your visit to Covenant Harbor, we offer a few activities to enjoy while you are here.

Our Waterfront will be open until 4:00pm for you and your family to use, staffed by our lifeguards. We also have carpetball tables set up on the front lawn and other locations around camp. If you would like to see more of Covenant Harbor, our full time staff will be offering tours leaving from the Boathouse. Tours are a great way to see more of camp!

Because our camp week begins on Sunday evenings, we invite Summer Sunday Worship guests to limit their stay until 4:00pm.
