Jesus said to his disciples“. . .’Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. . .’ Then he took the children in his arms, placed His hands on each of them, and blessed them.” Mark 10: 14, 16. Children are a gift. In Jesus’s ministry, He reached out to children.
The Children’s Ministry at The Church of the Covenant, PCUSA is dedicated to reaching out to children as Jesus called us to do. There are various opportunities for children and families to learn, fellowship, and worship. An education needs reading, writing, math, social studies, science, art, music, gym, and recess—for ALL ages. Christian Education makes it complete! You and your family are invited to take advantage of our worship, our classes, and our fellowship times to begin or nurture your faith journey. Staff and volunteers who work with children and youth are required, as part of our Child Protection Policy (below), to have appropriate clearances.
