Covenant’s Children’s Ministry has year-round programming for children birth through 5th Grade. Most activities take place in the lower level of the church. If you would like additional information, please contact our Director of Children and Youth Ministries, Ian Troll. We also have a youth ministry for grades 6-12.
If you plan to have your children attend on Sunday mornings, please keep a few details in mind:
– At this time, masks are required for all people two and older in the Children’s Ministry area. Please plan to bring a mask for your child.
– For the safety of our children’s ministry, all children must be checked in by a parent or guardian and receive a name tag. There will be two check in stations with multiple devices to help disperse traffic, but please plan to arrive a few minutes early to have adequate time to check in your children.
– To help ensure a fast and easy check-in, please update yours and your children’s information in Covenant’s database. You can do so here.
– There will be no snacks offered at this time.
Two nurseries are available during Sunday worship for various stages of early childhood development. One nursery is for children birth through age 2; the other is for 3 year olds and pre-k students.
As an extension of the service upstairs, Children’s Worship follows the liturgy and church calendar. Children in PreK-2nd Grade walk through a similar liturgy to the service upstairs. Worship continues through prayer, singing, crafts, and a Bible Lesson geared to help children learn about God and develop a true relationship with Him. Children’s Worship takes place during the 10 am service.
The catechism is a series of questions and answers that encapsulate our faith. This class is offered for grades 3-5 during the 10 am service in place of Children’s Worship. The class is a relational way to learn about key concepts of Christianity and how faith changes us.
To ensure the safety of all involved in our Children’s Ministry, each of our children’s classrooms follows the same Child Protection Policy which outlines basic guidelines and procedures for our workers. This includes a background check for all volunteers. This policy is not a legal contract, but rather a relational commitment to parents, reassuring them that we take seriously, and approach with great care, the time we spend with their child. Children must be checked in to the Children’s Ministry for each service on Sundays. We encourage every parent to review a copy of this policy; copies may be obtained from the Children’s Ministry Director. Additionally, Covenant keeps the doors locked to the children’s area during services to insure that only parents, volunteers and children are in our children’s ministry area.
