Our Youth and Family Ministries exist to be a place for young people to belong, believe, and become at First Covenant Church:
Belong | a safe place for youth to be known and accepted. Our volunteers are screened and we have a zero tolerance for bullying or other threatening behavior.
Believe | a place where youth grow in their faith, are encouraged to wonder, ask questions, and grow through teaching and conversation with peers and trusted adults.
Become | a place where lives can be transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit. Youth become bearers of kingdom justice and mercy to the world.

We have something for every age and stage at First Covenant on Sunday mornings. We hope by worshiping with us you'll catch a glimpse of the Kingdom, and be encouraged to find your place in it. Each Sunday has familiar components, but no week is the same. Here is what youth can expect on Sundays:
9:30am - 10:30am | Worship
All ages gather in the sanctuary for in-person and live-streamed worship. You may see youth leading in worship by reading scripture, singing on worship teams, or participating in special musical groups. Every week our visuals are run by a rotating team of youth volunteers. Youth also help run our worship livestream.
10:30am - 10:45am | Fellowship Time
There are often treats, coffee, and water provided in our Upper Fellowship Hall following worship. This is a great opportunity to refuel while connecting with others.
10:45am - 11:45am | Spiritual Growth Hour (September - April)
- Youth Sunday School: Most Sundays our youth gather in the Den to study the Bible, apply it to life, and connect and grow in friendships with one another and youth mentors. This is a great place to deepen relationships and faith together.
- Confirmation (6th - 8th graders): Our junior highers meet monthly with Pastor Anne as a part of their 2-year Confirmation Journey through the Old Testament, New Testament, and Church History.
