Scripture mandates to teach, train, encourage, and equip our children (Deuteronomy 6:7).
Our desire is to encourage and guide our children in developing a deep and intimate relationship with Jesus; knowing, feeling, recognizing and expressing His love through the gifts of the Spirit.
Our committed teachers prepare our children in God's word and His foundations, as well as teaching them to operate in their spiritual gifts.
Children are highly valued and play a big part in our community. While participating in corporate worship, they are encouraged to share a revelation, a word, a teaching, a vision or dream, a piece of art, a prayer, a scripture, or a personal testimony.
The Covenant Center offers youth classes during Sunday morning and Wednesday evening meetings. A Cry Room is available for mothers of infants and can be used for feeding, napping, rocking and soothing, and diapering. Mothers and babies may utilize this space privately while still participating in the meeting by listening to the service and observing through a privacy window.
Childcare may be offered for other events at The Covenant Center as well. Please check the Events Calendar for more information.
