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.
Our Children’s Director is Sarah Boatright. She’s fun, has a great team of adults who are committed to your children, and loves to chat with parents!

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. This year’s hunt is on Saturday, March 31 at 2:00 p.m. You can register for Vacation Bible School that day for $15, a savings of $5.
