New Series for Sunday Night Youth Group - Nov 12, 26 and Dec 3
MIDDLE SCHOOL
STUCK IS a 3-week series about how when we feel trapped in our friendships, emotions, or decisions, we can make a positive change through our thoughts and actions

SENIOR HIGH
REALITY SHOW is a 3-week series about how when we feel our families are fractured, frustrating, and full of drama, we can choose to improve our attitudes toward them by acting with compassion, love, forgiveness, and respect.
Progressive Dinners for MS and HS


Our Progressive Dinners are favorite traditions within our student ministry. We spend time together eating together and singing carols for some of our Church family who have a hard time getting out.

Also, on the nights your group is NOT having a PD, you'll be having a great time with your small group in an activity of your choosing.

Please click on the event above to host the event at your house or to provide a dish for the event at someone else's house.
Confirmation 2018
Confirmation is an important event in the life of our church. It is a time when the Covenant renews its commitment to the Christian growth and discipleship of our children. Through the vows made at baptism our church pledges to help families raise their children in the Christian faith. To do this Covenant Church has prepared a series of guided learning experiences and opportunities for confirmation. Confirmation is offered to those who are in 7th grade or older.
