New London Covenanted Community Church was founded in May, 1977 by Rev. Michael Pacella. New London Covenanted Community Church met in a small church building called "Faith Chapel" in New London, Connecticut from 1977 to 1979. Beginning in 1979, New London Covenanted Community Church met in a number of places.
From 1979 to 1980, the church met in the New London home of Warren and Ann Axtell. From 1980 to 1982, the church met in a rented room at the Holiday Inn in New London. The American Legion building in New London served as New London Covenanted Community Church's home from 1982 to 1985. From 1985 to 1987, the New London Methodist Church rented its building to NLCCC. Finally, in 1987, New London Covenanted Community Church purchased its own building and with the new building came a new name-New London Covenant Church.
