Covenant Life Student Ministry exists to serve families through sharing the gospel with and the discipleship of Middle and High School students, as well as through partnering with and equipping parents as they disciple their kids. Ultimately, we desire to see every student encounter the unconditional love of God through meaningful relationships, authentic worship and the truth of His Word. Our prayer is that each student will commit to a life-long and life-giving relationship with the Triune God.


Our Student Ministry is intentionally designed to meet kids at a variety of levels and depths of belief.Wednesday nights are a great way for kids to "dip their toe in the water" and to get a clear picture of who this God really is. At our Sunday morning Discipleship Class, we get a chance to go deeper into who this God is, and what it looks like to follow Him. And in Small Groups, you get the chance to dig deeper into community and into His Word to learn how to lead others and to give your faith away as you follow Him! No matter where you are in your journey with God, at Covenant Life, we have a place for you! 


The Student Ministry Staff (Eric and Amanda) desire to be a resource to you as parents. One of the ways we do that is through partnering with CPYU (Center for Parent and Youth Understanding). CPYU is an organization striving to provide helpful and accessible resources to assist parents in understanding their teenagers and their world and learn how to connect with them.

We are set up in the Apple and Android App "Remind" to send out texts to parents and students! We'll be sending out texts to remind you about upcoming events or changes to any programming, links to register for events and retreats, and notices to check your email for pertinent information.

On Sunday mornings, join us for worship at 9:00am for the Modern Service or at 11:15am for the Traditional Service. Between those two services, we offer Discipleship Classes for middle and high school students from 10:15am to 11:00am.  Students will sit together during the the lesson then following the lesson middle and high students will split up for discussion time.




CONNECT, laughter, acceptance, fun, and connection are our key priorities. We gather to build friendships and be reminded of the goodness and grace of Jesus. CONNECT is designed to present the essential truths of the gospel as the foundation for our relationship with God and the source of abundant life.  All 6th-8th & 9th-12th graders will gather every Wednesday from 6:00-8:00pm for worship, friends, and fun.
