Dear Covenant Church Families,

It has been our heart since we re-opened our church to also provide a safe and fun place for your children to grow. In that light, we have chosen to re-open the following programs for children and youth on Sunday, October 4th — Sunday morning nursery, Sunday morning children’s church, Club 252 every other Saturday, and Sunday evening youth small groups.
 
The time and place of each of those programs along with the safety procedures we put in place for those programs are listed below. For further clarification or questions concerning these items, feel free to contact Matthew Geary at 301-300-6921/matthew@covenantsharon.org
