About Grace Covenant Church
Thank you for visiting the website of Grace Covenant Church in Athens, AL. We are still a church plant, a daughter of Decatur Presbyterian Church, and are affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in America.
It’s our hope that this website will give you a brief introduction to Grace Covenant. Therefore, feel free to look around, listen to some sermons, download our worship bulletin each week, and read about who we are and our hopes for reaching our community and world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The mission of Grace Covenant Church is to proclaim the whole gospel for the whole person through the whole city to the whole world.
Our Church Planter
Jeff Hooker came to Athens in August of 2013 to plant Grace Covenant Church.
What’s in a Name?
Let me assure you that we didn’t just throw three words together, but each word matters. Each word carries weight. Each word teaches us something about who we are and our hope for reaching our community.
We may be a new church, but our beliefs are not. As a Christian church, we hold to the historic Christian faith as contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and as summarized and confessed in the ancient creeds (Apostles’ and Nicene).
We are the first PCA church in Limestone County, AL. Athens has long been on the radar of Decatur Presbyterian Church and of Providence Presbytery as a potential location for a church plant. In God’s providence, that vision is becoming a reality.
