MUSIC Ministry 
Karin Lyle, Director

Classically trained on piano and self-taught on harp and violin, Karin Lyle joyfully leads worship service and special occasion music at Covenant Presbyterian Church.  She also hosts a Monday night jam session at CPC that is open to the public. Karin cheerfully 

demonstrates her love of God through her musical gifts and hospitality.


James Lyle, Ruling Elder

Adult Bible Study normally begins with a corny joke, leading into a verse by verse study of Scripture led by Jimmy Lyle. A second-generation Elder at Covenant Presbyterian Church, Jimmy has naturally stepped into the role of his late father, Jack Lyle, one of the founding Elders of CPC.  Both gentlemen are highly respected for their teaching and study skills. 

Bill Lupton, Ruling Elder

Covenant Presbyterian Church is committed to diligent prayer and financial support for our missionary families.  One of our missionary families is Andrew and Laura Kate Lupton.  Andrew and Laura Kate have a son and two daughters and currently live in Oslo, Norway.  Their mission is to plant an international church.  Oslo is fertile ground because of the international population that resides in Norway.

T. Ross Owen, Ruling Elder

Covenant Presbyterian Church values the opportunity to reach out to our local community and beyond with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  One of our outreach ministries is Radiant Reflection.  Our mission is to provide reflective clothing such as hats and vests to homeless pedestrians.  It’s estimated that thousands of homeless pedestrians are killed or injured by vehicular traffic every year.  Our goal is for homeless pedestrians to be safely seen.  For more information or to make a donation, visit
