CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

It is all about Jesus!

We want church to be a safe and fun place where children are introduced to the love of God! 

"Let the little children come to me..."

About Children's Ministry at Covenant


Jesus was intentional about showing his love for children and, like him, we joyfully welcome all children into our Covenant community! We partner with families to meet children where they are in a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment. Families trust their precious children with us, and we take that seriously! Safety is a top priority for us, and we have implemented a variety of safety measures. 

 

We offer interactive lessons based on Gospel truths instead of moral teachings. We believe children learn best through engagement in purposeful and meaningful play that supports all learning styles! In Children’s Ministry, we offer a safe environment where students will experience the joy and adventure of serving, worshiping, knowing, and loving Jesus.

WEEKENDS

Saturdays @ 5:30pm - Birth through 3 years old.
Sundays 9am & 10:45am - Birth through 6th grade.

Every weekend, we take children on a journey through the Bible, unfolding God’s BIG STORY and discovering how every story, passage and book points to the BIG MOMENT: JESUS!

 

This fall, we will start at the beginning, with Genesis, and move all the way through the Old Testament!  Z56 (Zone for 5th & 6th graders) is the one class uniquely designed to prepare “tweens” for the next level.  This class is meant to help the students develop a strong Christian worldview, helping them grapple with those big issues like friendships, movies, music, decisions, and of course, faith in Jesus. Each class is based on your child's age starting on September 1st just like school.

SAFETY

 

Safety is a top priority for our little ones! 

All volunteers and staff are screened through state and national criminal and child abuse background check programs and are trained regularly in the recognition and prevention of child abuse as well as health and safety procedures.


• All classrooms are kept clean. Toys and surfaces are sanitized regularly.   
• Classrooms are kept locked during service times, and hall monitors are present for added teacher support and security. 

• Our KidCheck computer check-in system is both easy to use and provides you and your child with the highest level of security.

• Snacks are all peanut-free to ensure a safe and healthy environment.

 

SPECIAL NEEDS

 

Children’s Ministry is committed to partnering with families and students with differing abilities and needs. We strive to have an inclusive program where every child feels successful, included, and loved! Our program includes planning and family partnership, youth buddies, one-on-one aides, classroom and bathroom accessibility, and sensory support equipment. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

STEPPING STONES PRE-SCHOOL


Stepping Stones is a mid-week pre-school that takes place at Covenant Church. Christ-centered learning is the foundation of our curriculum. Our program allows children to explore God’s Word and world through developmentally appropriate activities. Children at Stepping Stones enjoy learning through creative play, small and large group activities, individualized instruction as well as  hands-on learning centers. Our well-trained teachers guide the children through the creative curriculum in order to cultivate their love for learning based on Jesus and his Word.
