|Welcome to Olivet Covenant's Website.
"Celebrating over 150 years of Worship"
Founded in 1856
Olivet Covenant Church is situated in the Fairmount/Spring Garden section of Philadelphia.
Located just a few blocks from the Franklin Institute, the Museum of Art, the Rodin Museum
and picturesque Boathouse Row, we serve a community nestled in the center of some of the
city’s finest cultural attractions and restaurants. These various assets have helped to make the
neighborhood a lively and desirable place to be.
But regardless of attractions, it is the people
who make a neighborhood and likewise a church.
We seek to be a welcoming community to all,
regardless of age, race, education or social
standing. It is Jesus Christ who brings us
together and the Holy Spirit who holds us
together in God’s love.
Sunday morning begins at 10 a.m. with our
Adult Forum, a class where we read and discuss
various Christian books such as C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity, Augustine’s Confessions, and
Bonhoeffer’s Life Together. Worship follows at 11 a.m. and The Lord’s Supper is celebrated
on the first Sunday of each month. Spend a Sunday morning with us and see who we are for
yourself—we look forward to seeing you!
