The vision of the children’s church ministry is to support parents in the gift of raising children who love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love their neighbors as themselves.
To that end, we offer the following for our youngest members and friends.
Children’s Ministry Volunteers
All children’s church staff and volunteers have undergone finger printing and background checks prior to serving with children. These background checks are completed again every five years. All classes for children are taught with two leaders in the classroom at all times. Volunteers undergo training so that they may provide the best instruction and care for your children.
If you are interested in serving as a volunteer in the children’s ministry, email Elizabeth McAdams, children’s ministry director, at email@example.com.
Covenant Presbyterian Church offers Sunday School classes for all ages at 11:15 a.m. starting the Sunday after Labor Day and continuing through May. We use curriculum designed specifically for the needs of each age group, from toddlers to high schoolers. Wonderful, dedicated teachers provide a fun, safe environment for the children to learn more about God and His Word.
Age 2 & Under
Currently, our youngest children, two and under, meet in the nursery, situated in the entry to the main worship building. There they are able to play, sing, color, wiggle, and read together a brief story from the Bible. Parents may drop off their child at 11:15, if they are not already in the nursery for worship.
PK3 – 2nd Grade
Children ages 3 through second grade enjoy using our new outdoor classroom and are using the Gospel Story curriculum to learn how the entire Bible tells one story about Jesus.
Children in grades 3-5 are also working through the Gospel Story curriculum. They meet outside at the picnic tables.
Our middle school students are studying the Westminster Shorter Catechism. They meet inside the education building, in the front fireplace room.
During the Service
It is our desire that all families feel welcome at Covenant Presbyterian Church. With that hope, we provide several options for children during the service, beginning at 9:30. Parents should always feel free to keep their children of any age with them throughout the entire service, if they desire.
For our youngest babies, as well as nursing mothers, a private space is provided for your comfort right outside of the sanctuary. This space is located inside the nursery and has a diaper-changing station. It also is equipped with a speaker so that you may listen to the sermon.
We provide quality childcare for infants during the worship service at 9:30 a.m. This separate nursery space, located just outside of the worship room, is designed specifically to keep our youngest babies safe.
