Children & Families
Dear Covenant Children & Families,
While our church building has been closed for months, our church, Covenant, was never closed. We have continued worshiping God, praying for each other, texting our church families with encouragement, Zooming with laughter and tears, joining together for a virtual Vacation Bible School (VBS), and loving one another well. No, Covenant never closed. As we enter the Fall we know you are overwhelmed with school, work, and keeping everyone safe. We want to support you and provide you with experiences that are helpful. Below are some things we are working on. And once it is safe to do so, we are looking forward to returning to in-person worship, Treasure Finders, and our other activities as well. As always, I am praying for you all.
Grace and peace,
Blessing of the Backpacks 2020:
Please join us for our drive-through Blessing of the Backpacks September 13, 12:30-1:30. Please bring food for our SOS food pantry if you are able. There will be a grocery cart for collecting food outside the North entrance. Then continue around the building to the steeple (East entrance) where we will have blessing bags for each student. You can stay in your car and we will place the bags in your trunk for a no-contact but a full-love blessing!
Coming End of September 2020:
- Virtual Treasure Finders (Sunday School) - We will be focusing on a passage that is full of wisdom that will enrich families, exploring Jesus’ vision of God’s inclusive kingdom, how Jesus turned expectations and traditional beliefs about being blessed upside down, and how to live into the promises of Jesus’ Beatitudes. More details to come on how this will look, but we anticipate this involving pre-recorded videos & activities children can use at their convenience.
- The most fun you ever had on Zoom! One of the great blessings of our church family is how much our children truly care about each other. We know they miss seeing their friends and we want to provide them opportunities to see each other and say hello. We also know that many of our students will be spending much of their time on devices for school. I hear you and will work to schedule some short sessions at intervals that work for most of you.
We want to work with you as you guide your children in their exploration of Holy Mystery. Here at Covenant Presbyterian, we are family and we are here for one another as we all grow in faith and love. All of us are on this journey together.
You want your children to know in their hearts that they are beloved of God all the time. You want them to know that, right now, God can work through them to bring more love into the world.
You want them to experience joy. We are good at that here.
We engage bible stories, pray in lots of different ways, play, create, explore and serve others together.
We learn about the many ways God has revealed God's self to people -- and we find the revelation of God's love in Jesus Christ, who teaches us both what God is like and what it means to be fully human.
