Covenant welcomes children into the life of the church from nurturing Sunday School classes and childcare to participation in worship.
Classes are designed to engage every age and class size.
We are always trying out new ways of bringing God’s word to our children.
Our children explore what it means to be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ.
Children in Worship
Children are encouraged to attend worship with their families. Children in grade 2 and younger may go to childcare after a Word About Worship or return to their seats. Older children sometimes choose to sit together in the balcony for worship. Childen at Covenant actively participate in leading worship as they sing in the choir, read scripture, bring in God’s Word as a beadle, or carry in the light of Christ as an acolyte.
Nursery and Childcare
Our nursery is available on Sunday mornings during Sunday School and worship. The nursery is located across from the Youth Room on the 2nd floor. Children ages 4 and above are invited to attend one of our Children’s Sunday School classes from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m.
During worship, children in grade 2 and below may go to childcare after A Word About Worship. Childcare volunteers will lead children to the childcare room.

High school youth (grades 10-12) may also attend the Adult Sunday Class in the chapel and sing in the choir. Choir rehearsals begin at 10:30 a.m. You may also contact our Director of Youth Ministry for more information.
What is Confirmation Class?
Our Confirmation Class is offered to youth in 7th grade and above. Confirmation is the affirmation of the work of the Holy Spirit that calls us to community. It is a journey of faith that starts with an individual commitment and continues to shape us as we seek to live into our baptisms as a part of the Body of Christ.
Confirmation is an experience, rather than an event, that affirms the act of baptism. Confirmation involves a time of self-reflection within a community, guided study, and giving voice to our faith. The confirmation experience should celebrate life in the Spirit as part of one’s continuing faith journey.
Our goal is not for the confirmands to just join the church but to be able to articulate their faith at this particular time and place and to live into the claim of their baptism.
