The Covenant Youth Group gathers every Sunday at 4:00 p.m., to share dinner. Not only will we grow in relationship with one another but we will also be growing in service. Each month, we will have at least one service activity. Students who want to do music can do so from 5:40-6:30 p.m. with Greater Than The Sum (GTTS) Choir or Bells. Meet Mr. Service in the Sanctuary. Anyone who does not participate in music is welcome to bring home-work to work on or just hang out until pick-up time at 6:30 p.m. in the 7th St. parking lot. Questions? Contact Britney Knight at [email protected]

Plan ahead for the Souper Bowl of Caring on January 26: Youth group families are invited to create their best soup and go up against each other to help raise money for non-profit organizations in our neighborhood! Last year, 12 families including some grandparents raised almost $800 for Community Shelter Services and Strong Vincent’s BE STRONG after school program. This event will take place immediately after the 11:00 a.m. worship service on January 26. There will be no youth group later that day. Please consider signing up in January!
