COVkids Children's Ministry

Discover the ministry opportunities for your children at Covenant.

Covenant's Children's Ministry

Children hold a special place in our church family. We want them to be seen, get involved, and get to know people of all ages.

Infants (6 Weeks) TO Pre-K

On Sundays, loving nursery care is available throughout the entire service for infants, toddlers and Pre-K. Our nursery staff are consistent, experienced, CPR-trained, and background-checked so you can be sure that your little ones are in excellent hands.

K-5th Grade

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.

What to expect your first time with us

First, visit our COVkids check-in desk. There we will meet your family, enter your child into our system, and answer any questions you may have.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

Infants, Toddlers & Preschool

Before Service

  • You will check-in at the COVkids desk to receive both a printed nametag and a security tag.
  • Verify the phone number listed on the nametag as we will use this number to text you during service if necessary.
  • Place the nametag on your child’s back and keep the security tag with you for pick up.

After Service

  • Upon pick-up, show your security tag to the childcare worker at the front desk.
