Covenant Youth

Helping students discover their purpose and shape who they want to be.

A safe place to discover God’s love

In middle and high school, students begin to discover their purpose and shape who they want to be. Covenant’s Youth Ministry provides a place where students can come with questions, struggles, and doubts to wrestle with faith together. Grades 6-12 gather in person twice a week.

Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and Wednesday nights at 5:30 for middle school and 7 p.m. for high school. All youth programming takes place on the 4th floor of FEB.

Sunday Morning Small Groups

Get connected this Sunday! Grades 6-12 are invited to join us on the 4th floor from 9:30-10:30 each Sunday morning. We’ll hang out with our small groups and connect with friends. There will be donuts, games, fun, and group time with our incredible leaders! You won’t want to miss it.

Wednesday Nights

Covenant Campus, FEB 4th Floor

Our Wednesday Night gatherings are a great way for students in high school and middle school to connect in an unintimidating, welcoming atmosphere. This is a place where students learn about God, the Bible, and what it means to have an authentic relationship with Christ. Contact Jake Pluenneke for more details.

Dinner will be available each Wednesday with a $5 donation by cash or Venmo. Bring a friend, and we will see you soon.

Middle School: 5:30 – 7:00 pm

High School: 7:00 – 8:30 pm
