Children’s – Covenant Kids
Covenant Kids ministry teaches and nurtures children ages 2 thru 11 in an active learning environment. We believe the future of the church depends on effective ministry to children today. Therefore, the goal of Covenant Kids is to reach out to our children and draw them into a loving, serving relationship with Jesus Christ and with their church; and to train, resource, and support those who minister to them. We are preparing our children for life and eternity; therefore, we adhere to high spiritual, educational, and social standards as set forth in God’s Word. Covenant Kids programming uses a wide variety of resources such as games, science, puppet shows, drama, snacks and crafts to articulate the Word of God to children on their level of understanding. This ministry is provided every Sunday except the 1st Sunday of the month.
Youth Connect is an innovative ministry that shapes the lives of teens and helps them to learn how to use the Word of God in their everyday lives and connecting with them in an appropriate way, so they understand that God is relevant to them today. Youth Connect focuses on teaching biblical truths and exposing how the socially-accepted norms of most teenagers are in conflict with God’s Word. The lessons are thought-provoking and relevant. The goal is that every teen will be educated spiritually and empowered with the wisdom of God to make the right choices in life. It is in this ministry that Covenant Church International is developing the leaders of tomorrow.
