Children’s Ministry Mission & Vision

We will tell
the next generation
the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,
of his power and the wonders
He has done.
Psalm 78:4

Vision Statement

Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and with the
support of their parents, Covenant Children will experience a learning and loving community who will encourage them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Volunteer

We seek to develop children into fully devoted
followers of Jesus Christ through:

Hearing the CALL of the Gospel
 Learning the CONTENT of the Bible
Living in the CONTEXT of the church
Building COMMUNITY with others
Enjoying milestone CELEBRATIONS

As we strive to be faithful in telling the next generation the glorious deeds of the
 Lord we hope that our ministry will help both kids and adults feel a warm sense of community among our Covenant family.

Preschool Children’s Church

From Conquest to Kingdom

Back to the Land - In the book of Joshua the children will see how God encouraged Joshua and how He stopped the Jordan river so His people could pass through. Then once the people are in the land God does something only God can do, He performs miracles. God defeats Jericho and gives His people the land He promised. However, the people keep disobeying through the book of Judges to Ruth and the Samuel. 

Elementary Children’s Church

Each week the 2 years olds through 5th graders are invited to learn about God and His Word during these age level classes.  In a sequential way the children are taught the content of both the Old Testament and New Testament from a redemptive point of view.  Every story will help them understand the bigger story of how Jesus is our Savior and redeemer.  Sunday school is our core teaching time to learn the content of the Bible and to develop Bible literacy.
Thank you for trusting us with the care and well-being of your children. We are so excited to have your child participate in our children's ministry and look forward to building a relationship with you and your family.
