Whole Family Creation Station
Elementary Schoolers & Families
Sunday, November 6
Whole Family Sundays give families the opportunity to learn and grow TOGETHER. Moms, Dads, Grandparents, siblings (of any age), and more are invited to learn God’s story. The intergenerational Sundays will prepare families for learning and understanding the Biblical story that will be focused on for the rest of the month (when the K-5th graders have their own education time).

Our young singers bring their music to Sunday worship approximately twice a month, fostering their development as worship leaders.

Covenant Singers Grades 3–6 rehearse from 5:45- 6:15 PM
We’ll be in a new location this year! Gather in Room 303/305; Rehearsals are in Room 304. Families (parents, grandparents, other caregivers, siblings) are invited to share pizza dinner weekly with other choir families for a small fee.
