Our student ministry is not its own separate entity but an extension of the ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church, which seeks to proclaim “Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1 Cor 2:2) so that “we may present everyone mature in Christ” (Col 1:28). We hope to partner with parents and families to bring students into the life of the church, and to empower parents for the work of discipleship in the home. We cultivate this mission in the following ways:

Youth Group

Youth Group is a monthly gathering of all the youth for fellowship, family style dinner, fun and teaching. Through Youth Group, we hope to lead students in various aspects of the life of the church and godly living as well. We hope that students not only get to experience these good things but also come to see them as good and enjoyable as well. During Youth Group, we aim to lead students in at least 30 minutes of gospel-centered teaching from scripture. We work not only to teach the truth of scripture, but to also teach the beauty of scripture, and to train students to read and understand the Bible for themselves.

Events

Events are fun ways to gather students and their families. Discipleship goes beyond preaching and teaching and into how we live in the real world.
Events make memories, form friendships, and provide ample opportunity for discipleship in daily situations outside the walls of the church.
Most of our events are designed to allow parents (and siblings) to join the fun. We believe God designed discipleship to take place first in the home, then through the church. In family-based events, we encourage and work to enable families to have quality experiences together to benefit discipleship in the home.
