Welcome to Children’s Ministries at Covenant. This is a vibrant, creative and fun place to be! Our goal, in partnership with families, is to nurture our children as they grow physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Our Mission Statement
Children’s Ministries at Covenant Presbyterian Church is committed to supporting families in the spiritual development of their children in a safe, loving, and nurturing church environment. We accomplish this mission by:
- Providing a welcoming place where children experience God’s love and learn His word.
- Introducing children to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Teaching children about God’s big story and help them understand how they fit into it.
- Modeling prayer, worship, and Scripture reading as our way to communicate with God.
- Preparing children to live out their faith on a daily basis.
- Equipping staff, parents, and volunteers to work with children.
At Covenant, we want you to feel welcome, which means your kids must feel welcome, too! We want to support your family in the spiritual development of your children in a loving, safe and nurturing church environment. We make every effort to meet your kids where they are, providing age-appropriate worship activities and Sunday School classes. We have mini golf, zoo trips, swim parties, movie night, STIX ministry (musical interpretation and presentation), laser tag and other fun activities outside of Sunday mornings.
On Sunday Mornings
9:00 a.m. Learning Communities
Classes for all our children will resume on August 19.
10:15 a.m. Worship Service
At 10:15 a.m. we hold our Worship Service for all ages. A nursery is available for children ages birth through 4 years. Holy Moly (children’s church) is available during the school year for children in kindergarten through fifth grade during the service, all but the first Sunday of the month when we have a family worship time.
Kids interpret the lyrics to contemporary Christian songs using props such as dowel rods, fabrics and sign language. Our STIX teams often prepare for special occasions such as Christmas and Easter services. Contact Sarah Boatright to learn more about getting involved with STIX!
A two-part Sacrament Workshop is taught annually. All 3rd-5th graders are invited, with at least one adult guardian, to attend. The next workshop will be announced this fall.
Easter Egg Hunt
Covenant hosts an annual Easter Egg Hunt the Saturday afternoon before Easter Sunday where we have crafts, performances by the STIX group, and hundreds of plastic eggs filled with candy for the kids to hunt.
Vacation Bible School
Each summer, Covenant hosts Vacation Bible School, our biggest community event for children. During our 2018 VBS—Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus—over 50 volunteers walked alongside more than 140 kids. Check back in the Spring for details about the 2019 VBS.
Trunk or Treat
Every October 31 we offer a Trunk or Treat for the children in our neighborhood. Don’t miss out on this fantastic, fun, and safe way to celebrate All Hallows Eve on Tuesday, October 31 from 4:00–6:00 p.m.
