Children are important members of our church family! We want them to be part of our community, make friends of all ages, and learn about Jesus.
Infants/Toddlers (6 Weeks TO 2 year-olds)
On Sundays, loving nursery care is available throughout the entire service for infants and toddlers. Our nursery staff are consistent, experienced, Safe Sanctuary trained, and background checked so you can be sure that your little ones are in excellent hands.
Preschool (3-5 Year-olds)
Our preschool staff are background checked and Safe Sanctuary trained. They help little ones learn about God’s Word at their very own level. The stories read in preschool each week correspond to those learned by elementary students, and are accompanied by fun crafts and activities.
Elementary-aged kids begin and end worship with their families as at Covenant we believe it's important for kids to gradually learn to participate in "big" worship. During the sermon time, the kids will be dismissed and escorted to The Cove for a special time of fun, discovery, and learning. There they will gather with other students their age so they can learn about God's word at their own pace and level.
Partnering with you
We understand that kids have different needs. If your child prefers to remain with you during worship, he or she is welcome to do so. We'll be happy to discuss any special concerns regarding your child. We're eager to partner with you in your child's success at Covenant.
