Covenant Presbyterian Church - Charlotte, NC

Children at Covenant

a welcome and vital part of the community

Our children's ministry aims to give children a church home where they are called by name, discover discipleship, and grow in love of God and others.

Summer Sunday School at Covenant

Childcare is provided every summer Sunday for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers on the 1st floor of the education wing from 9:15am-12:15pm. The threes/ fours, and five's/Kindergarten classes meet each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. for an hour of play, crafts and a bible story. Children in first through fifth grades are invited to start in Sanctuary worship with their families at 9:30 a.m. After the "Time With Young Disciples" children follow the shepherd to the second floor of the Education Building (Room 207) where they will meet as one combined group until 10:30 for fellowship, worship and games!
Summer Sunday School is a ministry run by parents, grandparents, and other Covenant adults and your support is needed to make it successful!  If your child attends Sunday school, we ask that you help us by volunteering to help shepherd or lead at least one Sunday this summer.  All materials are provided in the classroom. No experience is necessary, but your presence is needed to share God's love with our children!

children's ministry overview

With special times on Sundays and Wednesdays, and through our weekday preschool, we share Christian values and themes in a variety of ways — through songs, drama, crafts and service. We also give parents tools and resources to help them guide their child’s spiritual development.
Children are welcome in all worship services, can attend age-appropriate Sunday School classes, and are encouraged to participate in other programs within the church. If you have any questions or would like to get connected, contact Claire Brown


B.L.A.S.T (formally known as Young Scholars) enjoy learning bible stories, important scripture passages, and fun activities like making prayer bracelets.
Children's Ministry offers two time slots to enjoy Young Scholars for children in 1st through 5th grades.
Children in 4th and 5th grades will meet at 5:45pm - 6:30pm and children in 1st through 3rd grade will meet at 6:30pm - 7:30pm each Wednesday night in room 207 in the Education Wing during Open Table.  Enter through the Welcome Center.

Children's Annual Milestone Programs

Children are spiritual beings.  They come to us with a sense of curiosity, playfulness, imagination, and a connection to something larger than themselves.  Our charge both as parents and as the church is to sustain and deepen that connection.  Consequently, Covenant offers a series of worship and education opportunities designed to nurture children and families into a life of faith.

Child of the Covenant - Infants & Toddlers
A celebration of babies born and adopted into the Covenant family in the previous year, Child of the Covenant is an annual worship celebration and reception to connect our families to programs offered in the Children’s Ministry, Women’s Circles and other families with young children. The occasion includes a reception, fellowship and group photo.

Christmas and Easter Worship – Kindergarteners
Each year at Christmas and Easter, our kindergarteners lead the Children’s services with reenactments of the Christmas and Easter stories.

Ready, Set, Worship 
As they advance in grade level, children take part in faith formation milestones to learn about worship traditions.
Grade 1:  Children and families get ready, get set and learn to worship together by examining the Sacrament of Communion. The class finishes with their participation in World Communion Sunday.    
Grade 2: Children and families learn about the Sacrament of Baptism, and if not yet baptized, offered the opportunity to be baptized during worship.
Grade 3: Children participate in a Bible game night and are then presented with Bibles in worship.
Grade 4: Tour the Sanctuary and Bell Tower with an eye on the meaning of Sacred Spaces.
Grade 5: Children and families participate in a one-day workshop on the relationship between Faith and Sexuality. Adolescents and parents learn about body image and healthy attitudes toward God's gift of sexuality. Breakout discussion groups are led by trained facilitators. Fifth graders typically attend from 9 a.m. to noon followed by lunch and a movie break. Parents are invited from noon to 2 p.m. Parents and kids will join each other for the conclusion.
