Serve in the church

Teachers and Shepherds
Help shape the faith of children and youth by offering leadership on Sunday mornings or evenings. We are currently seeking volunteers to teach Early Childhood Sunday School (ages 2-K), lead Elementary Small Groups and "Power Up" (the Bible story on steroids!) at 9:30 a.m., September - May. Teachers and leaders serve in pairs and rotate monthly. Electronic lesson plans, supplies and support are provided. For more information and to express interest, please contact Sally Jackson.
Ushers - A welcoming smile and greeting starts Sunday off right for everyone coming to worship. Usher teams distribute bulletins and assist in seating the congregation and collect of the offering at services each week.

Home Communion
Each quarter, elders offer home communion to allow home-bound members an opportunity to celebrate the sacrament we enjoy in worship. This extension of the feast is a reminder of God's love and grace and keeps people connected to our community of faith.

Audio/Visual Operator
Assist in worship by helping video stream and record the Sunday morning services. Many people participate in our services each week through live-streaming or a recording that is taken to Sharon Towers for residents. Your gifts can help make it possible for them to join us in worship. Contact Jason Graffis for more information.

Recreation Ministry Volunteer
Welcome visitors and members to our Recreation Wing. Volunteers may serve an hour or two at a time convenient to them. Contact Kevin Harper for more information.

Van Driver
Be part of a team that offers a ride to worship to people unable to drive or drives the church van for trips (youth, TLC) or to pick up and drop off neighbors who stay with us through Room in the Inn during the winter months.

Covenant Crew
Covenant Crew is available to make small home repairs for home-bound and disabled members.  Typical jobs that the Crew tackles include difficult to reach light bulbs, replacing smoke detector batteries or flipping mattresses. Please contact Laura Capranica if you have a project for us.

College Council and Secret Saints

Keeping Covenant College Students Connected

Secret Saint Celebration Brunch
Covenant Presbyterian has more than 100 college students enrolled in colleges and universities around the country. This committee acts as a liaison to our college students who may be away at school or here in Charlotte. College Council is responsible for communication to students about events at Covenant. Along with offering invitations to student gatherings during the summer and over Christmas, the Council also ministers to students individually.

Secret Saint Program
The Secret Saint Program matches college students with members of Covenant who provide encouragement and prayers throughout the school year – especially during holidays and exams. At the end of the school year, in May, Secret Saints are "revealed" during a celebration brunch where Students and Saints meet in person for the first time. Members interested in volunteering as a Saint, please click here to access the Secret Saint Volunteer form.

College Students who need to renew for the coming year, as well as rising freshmen who want to sign up to be a part of the program, please click here to access the College Student Information Sheet. If you have any questions, please contact Sally Jackson
