Christian Education

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, 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 Senior High youth meet throughout the year for fellowship, study, service, and fun. The Middle School and High School youth gather each week for Sunday School and every second and fourth Sundays of the month for YOUth group (games and an educational program). Other activities such as mission events, fellowship gatherings, lock-ins, and more are also scheduled throughout the year. The youth are also invited to participate in mission trips and youth conferences during the summer.   
 
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.
