Covenant Children’s Ministry Values
1) Every child is a beloved child of God and every family is welcome to our church.
2) Covenant provides a safe and secure place for every child and family to worship God and grow in their faith. (All Christian Education/Children’s Ministry programs and events are staffed by Covenant employees and volunteers who have passed background checks.)
3) The Christian Education/Children’s Ministry is a vital part of the Covenant community and the church’s mission statement–working hand-in-hand with other ministries of the church and across generations–to follow Christ’s example to love and to serve.
4) Children’s Ministry provides age-appropriate, engaging, and uplifting Christian programming to children through Sunday School, W.o.W., Wednesday night activities, and other special events.
5) Parents and guardians play essential roles and are invited to participate, volunteer, or observe ALL of our programs and events at any time. Our goal is to connect with, support, and encourage parents in their God-given role as the spiritual leaders of their children.
6) The Christian Education program seeks to glorify God by teaching children to love God and to accept His love, grace and forgiveness. Our goal is to equip children with an expanding knowledge of the Christian faith and provide age-appropriate avenues to learn the Bible stories.
Covenant Student Ministries
Covenant Student Ministries is an involved and vibrant community dedicated to serving God through worship, education, service.
“The goal of the Covenant Presbyterian Church Student Ministry Program is to glorify God through the enrichment and strengthening of relationships with each other and with God through the equipping of young people with appropriate tools for theologically competent discernment within the Body of Christ.”
Confirmation Class: Learn about the Confirmation class here!
Echo56: The “tween” years of 5th and 6th grade can be tough! Too old to hang out with the elementary-age kids and too bored by the ‘seriousness’ of the older groups. Covenant Student Ministries provides a special place for the energy, imagination, and humor of pre-adolescents as they explore and discover the greatness and mystery of God! With lesson plans that blend visual, reading, aural, and kinesthetic approaches, Echo56 presents the story of God and us in ways that stimulate durable learning and establish lifelong spiritual habits. For 5th graders Echo56 puts the finishing touches on the laying of the foundation for Confirmation Class preparation and is the beginning of the Confirmation journey for 6th graders.
SEgue: The 7th and 8th grade years are a crucial time for spiritual development at Covenant. Sundays and Wednesdays will provide the essential structure for these Confirmation Training years. Middle school age students are capable of learning that is challenging, intentional, and integrative. The intended outcome of the Confirmation Program at Covenant is a young person who is knowledgeable about her or his faith, who is committed to Jesus Christ, and who is intentional about living a life of Christian discipleship.
Pulse: It is no secret that the high school years can be tumultuous and overly busy times! Thankfully Covenant offers a space of safe harbor to high schoolers. The unfortunate truth is that the high school years are when extracurricular activities and other distractions can begin to pull students farther and farther away from the church community. Sunday and Wednesday Pulse meets to build affirming and healthy relationships among students and with God that will assist with cultivating a healthy Christian identity that will persist through the college/career years. With no topic off limits, Pulse is a safe place for asking the tough questions and for wrestling with scripture and with God.

Called to Serve!
Hi. We’re the deacons of Covenant, and we would love to have you join us in service to our church and Wichita! The general assembly says Deacons are to, “exhibit…the exemplary moral authority of sympathy, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ.”
We try our best to live those words by: feeding the hungry through our food pantry and Wednesday Night Suppers, providing money and gifts through our family emergency fund and Christmas family adoptions, supporting Westminster Woods, campers, college students and more.
We work hard, but we have a lot of fun doing it. Please ask Pastor Laura Frazey about how you can become a deacon.
