Children's Ministry

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Children ages 2 through 6th grade meet in the sanctuary & begin the morning by greeting each other.  Then they head downstairs to different classrooms for a variety of activities. The 2 year- olds through 2nd grade students have a music time with our Director of Music Ministries (Carla Metz).  The songs are often presented to the congregation for various special occasions. All the students hear or read Bible stories, the familiar and new, to strengthen their belief in God’s word and to learn how to put their trust in Him.

 

Their Christian growth continues to be nurtured with our two year confirmation class for teens in grades seven and eight.  High school students are invited to join the Adult Sunday School class. 

 

We also strive to develop in our children an understanding of their responsibility for the world. To do this we have various mission projects throughout the Sunday School year. Some of these projects include making cards and favors for our church’s Thanksgiving and Easter baskets, making Christmas gifts for the staff, sending cards to shut-ins, Operation Christmas Child, and Covenant Kids missions. We often combine classes for these projects and have been known to invite the adults to join in our fun!  


Schedule:

Sunday School classes meet each Sunday for one hour from 9 am to 10 am (Labor Day through Memorial Day)

 

Worship Service Childcare

"CHERUB TIME"

Infants are welcome in the worship service! We know that babies sometimes make more noise than adults, but that’s okay...in fact, it’s one of the things we love about them!  We believe that children are an important part of our community, and we are glad to have them learning about God with us.  If you feel more comfortable taking your child out of the sanctuary, childcare (known as "CHERUB TIME") is provided downstairs in our "Yellow Room" which is staff by two caring volunteers (with background clearances) during the worship service (from 10:15-about 11:30).

Youth Group

Join us on Wednesday, August 14 for a fun day of tubing on the Delaware River!  We will leave church at 9:00AM and return sometime, hopefully around 3:00PM.  We don’t have much control over the current in the river, after all!  Bring your swimsuit, towel, & sunscreen.  Shoes are required, so bring water shoes or old sneakers that can get WET! 

 

Food is available to purchase for lunch.  You can also pack a lunch, leave it in the van, and eat upon our return.  You are welcome to bring snacks to eat beforehand too.  See the website for further food info.

 

The cost is usually $25, but we’re asking each person to pay $15 cash; this makes it MUCH easier than dealing with checks.

 

IMPORTANT:  You MUST bring two documents - the River Country Waiver and the CCC Contact Sheet.  They are both in the narthex and have been sent to parents of Youth Groupers.  You cannot go if you don’t bring BOTH on Wednesday, 8/14. 

  * IF you have already filled out the CCC Contact Sheet,

    we have that on file.

 

Contact Pastor Jim by or before August 12th if you are going or have questions.  pastorjim@christ-covenant.org
