youth and families

you are welcome here
 
sunday schedule
family discipleship hour (all ages)
9-10 am | classes are broken into nursery, kids, 3rd-5th grade, youth, and adults. We use this hour to intentionally take our children through our core insights aiming toward developmentally appropriate goals for each age group.
New to Covenant? You can sign-up your child for an easy check-in here.
 
SUMMERTIME: no discipleship hour; instead sign up for our family challenge! Each year, our summer family challenge equips families and kids to make their faith their own and to practice bible study, prayer, and service outside the walls of the church. Like any good challenge, there are some great prizes and goodies to be had along the way!
 
middle school (6th-8th grade)
6-7:30pm | youth group for middle schoolers looks like lots of games, fun activities, singing and dancing, relational time with our volunteer leaders, and a Gospel presentation. While Sunday mornings are opportunities for our students to dig deeper in God’s word together, these evenings are great for inviting friends into the story of what God is up to in our world.
 
high school (9th-12th grade)
Various | youth group for this age level focuses more on the relationship. While we spend some time in games and singing, we take most of this time getting to know each other through ice breakers, Bible study, prayer, and bonding activities. High school is a time students really need a faith community to rely on, and we aim to provide that when we gather. 
 
 


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our main goal for
families is to provide
a safe space to process
and guide parents and
kids through these questions
 
Grounded: Who am I? 
Connected: Who are my people?
Impact: What is my purpose?
