Kids Ministries

Cadets

Our Cadet club consists of boys in grades 5 through 8 from Covenant, Faith and Bridge of Hope Christian Reformed Churches. The goal of our local club is to help boys in respect to their devotional, mental, physical and social development in light of God’s Word. The Cadets and their counselors meet throughout the year to work together through Bible studies, crafts, fellowship, and special activities to learn more about how to apply the Cadet motto, verse, pledge, and code to Christian living.

Motto: Living for Jesus.

Verse: “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15

Pledge: Thankful to God for His gifts to me, I pledge myself to be ready to serve God, my parents, my country, my church, my neighbor, and my Corps.
Code: A Cadet must be reverent, obedient, compassionate, consecrated, trustworthy, pure, grateful, loyal, industrious and cheerful.

If you would like to be a part of the Cadet program please contact the church office covenant@mtcnet.net.

GEMS

Our local GEMS club (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior) is made up of girls in grades 4 through 8 from three Sioux Center Christian Reformed congregations–Covenant, Faith and Bridge of Hope. The purpose of GEMS is to encourage each girl to serve the Lord with sincerity and integrity while raising awareness of her responsibility in God’s world.

Nursery

The care of our young children, newborn through age three, is given during each worship service by volunteer members of the congregation. An infant and toddler nursery provides a safe and comfortable environment where children are cared for and have opportunity for play while their parents worship.

After parents have signed their child(ren) in they are given a pager so that they can be alerted during the service if their child(ren) needs parental care.

Sunday School

The purpose of Covenant’s Church Education program is to nurture children in their faith-walk in an environment conducive to each child’s age level. It’s a place where students are given opportunity to express his or her faith and thoughts as they learn about the story of redemption through Jesus Christ.

Sunday School at Covenant includes children in grades 1 though 8. They meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m., September through April, and use the Walk With Me curriculum from Faith Alive Resources.

For more information, or to be a part of Covenant’s Church Education program, please contact the church office covenant@mtcnet.net.

Young Children and Worship

“Young Children and Worship is a program curriculum that presents a joyful way for children to worship God. It invites children to experience the wonder and mystery of God through a unique storytelling format and multi-sensory materials1” in a worship setting developed especially for them.

Here at Covenant Young Children and Worship is for children age three through Kindergarten. They are dismissed from the morning worship service at the designated time indicated in the bulletin and meet together in the church’s multi-purpose room. Children must be three years old by September 15 to be eligible to attend the fall session. For those turning three after September 15, but prior to February 1, an orientation is held the first Sunday in February for the winter, spring and summer sessions.
