THIS SUMMER

Base Mission Trip, CROSS City Serve

June 18-23; Charlotte, NC; $295

You don’t have to travel far to find someone in need. Youth experience up to eight different urban ministries. Ministry sites include serving people in Charlotte who are hungry, homeless, elderly, and disabled as well as children. There are opportunities for both direct service and building relationships. Register with Erin Williams at erin.williams@covenantpresby.org

Quest 8th Grade Mission Trip to Heifer International Ranch

This is an extremely unique week of mission and learning. Heifer International has dynamic programming that allows students and adults to feel submerged in their world-wide work, all from the ranch in Arkansas. It is a bonding experience to say the least!

Registration is now open through Erin Williams at erin.williams@covenantpresby.org

 

CHAPERONES WANTED

As always, adult volunteers are needed as chaperones to help keep our youth counted and accounted for. Please let Perrin know your availability via e-mail at Perrin.tribble@covenantpresby.org.

Confirmation / Quest Experience

Eighth graders are invited to participate in a year-long process of discovery around what it means to embrace a life of faith and Christian discipleship for one's self. This year builds from the beginning to the end, so students benefit from committing to the journey in full through May 21.
 
Choosing a mentor: Confirmation students choose a mentor within the church or someone willing to be part of the church during the experience. We can help with matching you. Look for details in early September.
 

Volunteer Opportunities

We'll need people to assist our interim leaders on Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings, and Wednesday evening groups, as well as by serving as chaperones on retreats and mission trips.
To sign up to serve:
  1. visit here for Sunday School or here for Sunday evening Fellowship to sign up to serve for upcoming ministry opportunities.
  2. A Covenant staff person will send you a link to complete child protection training and a background check, if you have not recently completed them.
