On Sunday, August 17, 2019, Dr. William H. Whitaker, II preached for the morning worship service of the Shalom Baptist Fellowship Church. In the congregation that day were “family members” of Dr. Whitaker who requested to meet with him following the morning’s worship service. With the permission of the Shalom’s Pastor, Dr. Whitaker met in the Shalom Baptist Fellowship Hall with 12 persons who desired to begin regularly worshiping together on Sunday mornings under the name of “The Family”. The Family’s first worship service was held on Sunday, August 25, 2019 with Dr. Whitaker as their Pastor.
Pastor Whitaker’s first sermon to The Family was “The Pilgrimage of Faith” from Hebrews 11:8. “By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went even though he did not know where he was going.”
The Family remained the name of our congregation until Sunday, October 6, 2020 when, under the coordination of the Hill Family (Greg, Pam, Izetta, and A. J.), The Family chose the new name of the Covenant Fellowship Baptist Church.
Our first logo was a logo found on the internet by Pastor Whitaker and was used on our church bulletins until our new church logo was designed by Assistant Pastor Maria.
