Olivet-Covenant Presbyterian Church

[Photo of Olivet-Covenant Church] As we walk North on 22nd Street we will pass by the Olivet-Covenant Presbyterian Church. The building originally housed the Olivet congregation, and it joined with another church. Over the past 100 years, a total of 4 congregations have merged to create the active, dedicated church community alive today.

Residents of the area may remember the popular Summer Vacation Bible School. Currently the church runs a neighborhood outreach program call "The Alpha Course."

Visit the church's Web Site for more recent information.

We'll continue up 22nd Street and end up at the last stop of our tour, the historic Eastern State Penitentiary.
