College Council and Secret Saints
Covenant Presbyterian has more than 100 college students enrolled in colleges and universities around the country. This committee acts as a liaison to our college students who may be away at school or here in Charlotte. College Council is responsible for communication to students about events at Covenant. Along with offering invitations to student gatherings during the summer and over Christmas, the Council also ministers to students in several ways:
The Secret Saint Program matches college students with members of Covenant, who provide encouragement through the school year. Secret Saints remember students on holidays, during exams, and at various other times.
College Students who need to "re-up" for the coming year, as well as rising freshmen who want to sign up, please download and complete the College Student Information Sheet and email to Michelle Williamson or submit the form to the church office.
Covenant Goes to College
Connect with students by taking a road trip to area colleges and universities. Join our staff and past youth advisors as the they meet our college students and friends for a free lunch, coffee or ice cream.
We recognize that our young people are not the only members experiencing a transition when they leave for college. Parents Nights are a new endeavor to help foster community in parents of college-age students. We serve in mission together, worship together and help each other through those first summers and holidays when our new young adults return home for the first time.
