Though our first gathering for worship was April 1, 1990, the beginnings of Covenant started a long time before that. The Presbytery of Miami Valley and the First Presbyterian Church of Franklin began working together in the mid 1980s to create Covenant Presbyterian Church. In March of 1990, First Church officially closed her doors and became the core group to start a New Church Development in Springboro, meeting initially in a storefront setting behind Edwards’ Furniture across from McDonalds. Ken Howard was called to be the Organizing Pastor and just recently retired after serving for 23 + years. Growing in numbers CPC chartered itself with the Presbyterian Church (USA) in February of 1991. In January of 1996 we moved into our present location on North Main Street. Pastor Sarah Sparks-Franklin is our current pastor.
