SUNDAY SCHOOL SCHEDULE

Nursery

Our nursery provides safe and loving childcare for babies three months up to four years old. Our nursery is divided by developmental stages; children grow and learn at their own pace. Our staff, trained in CPR and first aid, provide care for all worship services and most church-wide events.

Preschool

In Covenant’s preschool ministry, we deliver age-appropriate Bible lessons through small group time, and do activities and crafts to convey messages of God's love. Parents securely sign their children into a classroom on the third floor of the Fellowship and Education Building.

Kindergarten - 5th Grade

Kindergartners through 5th grade students start their Sunday with a large gathering where they sing songs of worship and praise. They are then divided into grade and gender groups led by “shepherds” (volunteers). Through these small groups, children get a sense of belonging and share lessons that help them know Jesus better.

Kids @ 11

Fun and Bible study during the 11 a.m. worship services is provided for kids 4 years through 1st grade in the Fellowship and Education Building

Worship as a Family:
