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..."

Dear Parents,

This time period of at-home everything-school, play, work, can be a bit challenging for everyone. We're now offering childcare for all children starting October 11th. Please read the Children's Ministry Guidelines using the button below for what your family will need to begin participating and how we're planning on keeping your little ones as safe as we can.

We will still continue to offer our SHAPE video lessons online on Wednesdays as well. Every week you will see an update with resources for you to be the leader for your family's SHAPE night. Included in this is a video lesson from Pastor Andrew as well as some downloadable resources. You can find new video lessons every Wednesday afternoon. Each downloadable weekly and age appropriate activity will be available for Sunday mornings for you to use along with our LIVE sermon stream by using the buttons below. Please, reach out if you have an comments, questions, or need help.

 

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 intentionally seek to meet children where they are, providing a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment that helps them come to know, love, and serve Jesus. Parents entrust us with their children, and we take that seriously!

 

We offer interactive lessons based on Gospel truths instead of moral teachings. Covenant Children’s Ministry is designed to be fun and interactive – providing a safe environment for children of all ages to experience Jesus through creative, and hands-on activities. In Children’s Ministry, we offer a safe environment where students will experience the joy and adventure of serving, worshiping, knowing, and loving Jesus.

 

We are now in the new Childrens Center. It is so exciting! God has truly blessed us with this large new space where we can welcome more families and point more children to Jesus!

 

WEEKENDS

Sundays at 9 & 11am | 1st - 6th Grade

Starting September 13th we will be launching the kick-off of Sunday morning Children's Ministry. On weekends 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!

If you have not already viewed the new safety guidelines for participating in Children's Ministry programming on Sunday mornings, please read through them using the button below.

 

MID-WEEK

We are excited to still offer our Mid-week SHAPE lessons through video every Wednesday afternoon for children of all ages! Join us as along with friends of all shapes and sizes each week as we learn more about Jesus. Below you'll find our most recent video, some worksheets to go along with the lesson, as well as some resources for you as parents to help shepherd your family well.

 

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.

 

  • Volunteers and staff are thoroughly screened, vetted, and trained.
  • Children's Center is kept secure from non-background checked adults.
  • Teachers are CPR certified.
  • Classrooms and toys are clean
  • Snacks are peanut-free
  • Check-in system is easy to use and provides the highest level of security.
  • We are also taking many extra precautions to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Please see those using the button below.

 

KID SUPPORT

Children’s Ministry is committed to partnering with families and children with differing abilities and needs. We strive to have an inclusive program where every child feels successful, included, and loved! Our program includes family partnership and planning, classroom buddies, one-on-one aides, classroom and bathroom accessibility, as well as sensory support equipment. We now have a Sensory Room where children can go if they feel overwhelmed or anxious to find peace again.

STEPPING STONES PRE-SCHOOL

UPCOMING IN JANUARY 2021

 

Due to some unfortunate circumstances (not the least being COVID), Stepping Stones Preschool had to close for the 2020-2021 school year. But now we are making plans to reopen for the 2021-2022 schoolyear! In the meantime, we wanted to create an opportunity for children to still enjoy time together while keeping their skills sharp. And so, that is why we decided to create a Preschool Club!

 

This relaxed, fun club will begin January 5, 2021. It will meet at Covenant from 9 to 11:30am every Tuesday and Thursday from January until May. The cost for this exciting experience is only $200 per month. We hope your child can join us for the fun!
