2021 Children's Service

 

July 4, Children's Ministries explores how our gifts from God of peace, strength, courage and helping, can be used in situations to help us accomplish extraordinary feats.

  • 10:30 a.m. Children's Service will meet in-person at Covenant in the family room on Sunday mornings.

Join us in July as we get to know some of the ordinary people in the Bible, used to help God in extraordinary ways.


No matter how many larger than life stories they hear, most kids will always think they are too small or insignificant to make an impact. As a result, "living for God" often ends with church attendance and rarely carries over into their daily lives. Kids need affirmation, therefore, that they individually do matter, and that God will give them the necessary tools to do the right thing for God. In "Crossover" we are meeting everyday people who were lead to do extraordinary things through God's gifts of extraordinary peace, strength, courage, and help- all things made available to us today!


Please contact Sarah Misleh with any questions you may have, or if you are interested in volunteering. We are very excited to be meeting again whether it is in person or online!


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

    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.

  • Sunday Mornings

    Children's Church: is offered Sunday mornings in the family room at 10:30 am in person.

    The following classes are available:

    • Nursery: 10:30-11:30 during Sunday service
    • Preschool, (3 and 4 year olds): family room
    • Kindergarten through second grade: family room
    • Third through fifth grade: family room

    You may join us in the sanctuary for the in-person service or on our live stream through Facebook or YouTube. We offer a children's time during the service for those that opt to worship together as a family. Children's church convenes from 10:30-11:30 am in the family room.


    Throughout 2021 Children's Ministries will follow the Kids Grow Curriculum. A new series will start each month. Please join us as we dig deeper into God's Kingdom and his desire to be close with each of us.
