To all who are spiritually weary and seek rest; to all who mourn and long for comfort; to all who struggle and desire victory; to all who sin and need a Savior; to all who are strangers and want fellowship; to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness; and to whoever will come — this church opens wide her doors and offers her welcome in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Founded in 1975
Bryce Ave Presbyterian Church was founded as Sangre de Cristo Covenant Church in August of 1975 as a particular church of the Presbyterian Church in America. The founding pastor was the Reverend Wayne A. Buchtel.
The church moved into its current facility in January of 1977. Covenant Christian School (K-12) was run by the church in its facility starting in 1980.
Covenant Christian School
In 1985, the church changed its name to Bryce Avenue Presbyterian Church. In the fall of 1986, the Reverand LaVerne Donaldson became the interim pastor, followed in the spring of 1987 by the Reverend Henry Fernandez.
Henry and Cindy Fernandez
The church facility was rebuilt in 1992 following a major fire. Throughout the decades of challenge and change, God’s faithfulness has stood as a testimony to His grace and love.
The Covenant Christian school was closed in 1997.
