Our Sunday School and Youth Group include time for learning, fellowship and fun. We discuss current topics from a Biblical perspective. We have a team of caring adults leaders and volunteers who teach and nurture the youth who attend our programs.

To have the young people make a public profession of faith in their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  For them to have an active, joyful, faith that is their own. To have them gain an appreciation of the Presbyterian Church, and enjoy fellowship with the members and pastors of The Church of the Covenant. This will be accomplished through teaching, experiential learning, and fellowship opportunity experienced together and  facilitated by teachers, advisers, and prayer partners.

In any case, if you are in 9th grade this year, or missed it in a previous year, you are welcome and encouraged to participate.
