You Belong Here
We all long to belong to the family of God. He designed us with that longing and only he can fulfill that desire. At The Covenant, we work hard to help student feels like they are more than just welcomed here. We strive to help students feel like they belong here in our church community and to Christ himself.
That's why we make sure Every Student Belongs to a Small Group. We believe that life change happens best in the context of a relationships in a small group. So, together, we gather each Wednesday night for inspiration and each Sunday morning for education.
September - May
Wednesdays - FUEL (Inspiration)
Middle School 6:00pm - 7:30pm, High School 6:15pm - 7:45pm
Each week, over 150 students gather in their small groups at the church and together experience engaging worship, helpful biblical teaching, and meaningful conversation and prayer. All together it's a very inspiring experience for students and their friends.

10th+ Grades We encourage older high school students to get involved and volunteer with the worship services or with kids ministry.
When it's all said and done, though, our hope is that students will walk away fully embracing and living out three words that we consistently teach through out all grades and environments:
God extends grace to me. I will extend grace to others. We all need and live by the grace of God. We strive daily to embrace it, live by it, and extend it to others around us.
God has given me a new identity. I will search for it nowhere else. Only God can define who we are and our identity as Christians is found in Christ alone. We strive daily to live life based on our true identity as Chosen and Changed Children of God - not based on our relationships, our circumstances, our successes, nor our failures, sins, and tragedies.
God works in the world through me. I will work in the world with him. God has given every Christian the "ministry of reconciliation," the job of loving and serving others and helping them develop a trusting relationship with Jesus. We strive daily to live out this calling on our lives, denying ourselves for the sake of fulfilling God's desire for the world.
