REGISTER KIDS FOR SUMMER ACTIVITIES

  • SUMMER SPLASH (2 years - 3rd graders)

    Monday June 28, July 12, August 23 from 9:30am - 10:30am

    located at: First Covenant Church of Saint Paul


    The Bible is filled with stories involving water, and this summer we're diving in! Summer Splash places God's Word into the hands of our children through small groups, art, acting, games, and more. Caregivers stay with toddlers and PreKers (led by Lora Murtha) and elementary aged kids will join Donovan DeGaetano and volunteers.

  • CREATIVE ARTS AND THEATER SUMMER CAMP (K - 6th graders)

    Monday, August 9 - Thursday, August 12 from 2:30pm - 5:30pm

    located at: First Covenant Church of Saint Paul

    Incoming K - 6th graders are invited to a four-day camp and experience the wonder of theater and the joy of creative arts. Campers will work together to produce a musical experience through acting, art, puppetry, and more in the midst of transformative community.

  • Sunday, June 27, July 11, and August 22

    Once a month we offer Children's Church during the worship service. Children's Church takes place during the morning's sermon in the worship service. Kids gather with trained volunteers for a time of age-specific teaching and community, and return to their caregivers during the final song.

Big g's neighborhood

a place for children ages infant - 6th grade, to experience the 3 B's: Belong, Believe, and Become

Belong - a safe place for children & their families to be known and accepted.

Believe - a place where the foundation of Christian faith begins.  The children are encouraged to wonder, ask questions, and grow through teaching and healthy relationships with their peers and trusted adults.

Become - a place where lives can be transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit, and become world changers for Christ.

Meet the little p's of big g's neighborhood!

When we began online worship services, the Little P's (our Children's Ministry puppet troupe) were formed. The Little P's bring fun that's fit for kids and enjoyed by all ages to our worship services. Recently the Little P's have joined with the team at Farnsworth Aerospace Magnet School to bring fun-filled reading, puppet style, into the classroom. 


Check out the Little P's greatest hits below. More coming soon!

MEET JASPER!

We are fortunate to have one of our fantastic children's volunteers also have an alter ego - a clown named Jasper! 

During the winter of 2021 Jasper brought us the "Joy of Balloon Art." 

Check out Jasper's balloon instructional videos below.

VOLUNTEERS

Ministry is maximized by our volunteers. We love our volunteers and value the impact they make in the lives of our children. First Covenant’s Children and Family Ministry believes in equipping and empowering our volunteers to serve, love, and care for our children.

We do this by:

  • Maintaining a safe adult to child ratio in our programs.

  • Enforcing safe bathroom and safety procedures.

  • Ensuring that our volunteers are trained and have successfully passed background checks before serving.
