Covenant offers a variety of exciting opportunities and experiences for all ages. We seek to nurture each person in their own personal Christian faith journey through a balanced program
of worship, study, service, and fellowship. Learning together, we continue to experience God’s love and care for us as our faith grows in a nurturing community.

Ministry with Youth

Sunday School Each Sunday morning at 9:30 AM, there are opportunities for Middle School and Senior High youth to study and explore their faith and life.
 
Youth Groups – Youth groups for Middle School and High School youth meet throughout the year
for fellowship, study, service, and fun. The Middle School and High School youth gather the first Sundays of the month for YOUth group (worship, Bible reading
and discussion, and games). Other activities such as mission events, fellowship gatherings, lock-ins, and more are also scheduled through-out the year. The youth are also invited to participate in mission trips and youth conferences during the summer. 
 
High School Coffeehouse – On the other Sundays of the month (not the first Sunday), High School youth meet to dig deeper into the Bible and discuss how it applies to our lives today. This year, we are going through the books of the Bible to learn about the time when they were written and the overall message being taught. We wrestle with common misuse of the Bible, different interpretations that people have on controversial passages, and how it affects our response in terms of faith in action.
 
Confirmation Youth (8th grade and older) are offered the opportunity for this serious step in their journey of faith. Confirmation at Covenant finds youth talking about their faith – in whatever shape or size it may come – with other people, and in so doing, coming to understand what they believe.
 
 

Ministry with Adults

Sunday School Multiple class offerings vary from in-depth Bible study, to book studies with shared dialog, to discussion groups on current issues and how they relate to our faith.
 
Bible Study The pastor lead a Bible study each Monday at 10:30 AM, September through May, which focuses on the texts to be used in worship the following Sunday.
 
Inquirer’s Class Led by the pastor, this class is offered several times throughout the year for those new to the church or interested in learning more about the Presbyterian Church (USA) and Covenant.
 
Novels & Needles This book club meets the second Friday of each month at 10:00 AM, September through May, in the Breezeway.
 
Presbyterian Women Circle Meetings: A time for women of the church to gather regularly for Bible study, refreshments, and fellowship. From September – June, Circle meetings occur on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at 10:00 AM in the Breezeway of the church. Following a study guide, discussion leaders rotate among volunteers. Some members attend monthly, and others come whenever they can. Either is fine!

CURRENT EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES

“Our intellectual pursuits should inform our faith commitments as our faith commitments should inform our intellectual pursuits.”  — F. Bullock, “The Dimming of the Light”

In Christian Education we seek to bring together intellect and faith, mind and heart, the Bible and current events as together we seek to answer the questions: Who is God and who does God want us to be? How shall we live? Within the pages of this brochure you will find opportunities to explore those questions from a variety of perspectives – from the insights of authors, the pages of Scripture, and stimulating discussion with friends.
