Covenant Presbyterian Church's new 32,506-square-foot worship center is the sanctuary’s 28-foot-tall wooden cross. Hand carved by woodworkers from Thomas Riley Artisans’ Guild, the fixture was designed to resemble gnarled trees in the Garden of Gethsemane. With seating for nearly 700, almost double the size of Covenant’s previous worship space, church members can watch the service on large video screens placed just below either side of the massive cross, which also display Bible verses used in sermons or song lyrics. Old-fashioned pews have given way to more modern seating, and despite the large space, there’s an intimate feeling.
