Woven Covenant Church began in the summer of 2014, when 30 adults and 20 children launched out of an ethnic community to establish a cross-cultural and multiethnic expression of radical faith that would share the Gospel Story and the love of Christ with the increasingly diverse demographics of West Houston. Meeting in Pastor Wayne & Ashley's home that first summer, they learned to break bread together, trust each other, cry together, grow together, and experience the miraculous together.
Today Woven Covenant Church is still a young church and finding our influence in this city we love. It is a diverse community now, with people from all walks of life, cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds. It is growing to be a reflection of the changing community around us, and we intend to continue loving our neighbors and taking actions of love.
We invite you to be part of our story which is part of the greater Story...
When new members join a Covenant church such as Woven, they are asked two questions about belief: “Do you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior and promise to follow him as Lord?” and “Do you accept the Holy Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments, as the word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct?” They are then asked if they intend to live as faithful followers of Christ and members of the church and denomination.
That’s all. That is enough.
But on another level, of course, the answer is a good deal more complex. While the Covenant Church does not require adherence to any written creed, we take our theology very seriously, and our history as well. We are a Reformation church, a part of the Church universal, and an evangelical church. In that heritage, we share certain central beliefs, which draw us together in faith and fellowship and make possible a freedom among us on more widely ranging issues.
We describe those central beliefs as “affirmations.” We hope that as you read these affirmations you will find yourself identifying with them in your own faith experience:
We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
We affirm the necessity of the new birth.
We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the church.
We affirm the church as a fellowship of believers.
We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.

We are Woven Together into a multi-ethnic community sharing a life of worship, discipleship, and fellowship that celebrates God’s creative plan for each and every one of us. Our vision is to see A Diverse Christian Community Woven Together in Jesus Christ. Our mission and values correspond with each other:
Reaching well - so that we may be a church of not one, but many cultures.
Teaching well - and creating disciples steeped in learning and living His truth.
Loving well - through recognizing the kinship we share in Christ.
Sharing well - as a team in ministry together.
Living well - as agents of love and light to where He has placed us now.
We are multi-ethnic - which means a church of not one, but many cultures.
We are disciples - through lives steeped in learning and living His truth.
We are family - and when the going gets tough, we step in.
We are high-collaboration - because the church does best when it is impelled by the people, not by personalities.
We are sent - as agents of love and light to our offices, homes, neighborhoods, schools, and anywhere else He has placed us now.
Woven Covenant Church is a missional church with a multiethnic mission for the suburbs of West Houston. We are a member congregation of the Evangelical Covenant Church, a fastly-growing, diverse denomination with Lutheran roots.
Contemporary, artistic, reflective, contemplative. Solid teaching and preaching. Music that is soulful and in-touch with the culture.
We're not better than the many churches that already thrive in our community. We simply want to be a diverse expression of faith in an increasingly diverse neighborhood. We want to be not just a church of one culture, but many cultures worshiping together.
1.5 hours. But we hope you'll stick around afterwards and visit a bit. We'll have coffee and refreshments available.
Always helps. And we have no problem if you are using an online Bible or app, such as Youversion.
