Youth Group

 
 
Welcome to our Youth Group page! We are so glad you found us here.  If you are in grades 6-12, we hope that you will get involved and join us by attending our meetings and events.
 
We have a dynamic Youth Group at Covenant!  Our youth group is composed of middle school and high school students who are committed to serving the community, supporting each other and worshiping God.  Throughout the year, the youth are involved in service and leadership projects and fun fellowship opportunities.  For over 20 years, our youth have been actively involved in serving the needy through youth missions.
 
Youth Group meets on Sunday evenings at 4:15 pm at Covenant UMC in the Youth Room. Dinner is provided by a parent volunteer after the meeting at 5:30 pm. We use this time as together as fellowship and learning what it means to be a Christian. 
 
Stay updated with youth group events and activities by checking out the youth bulletin board, Facebook, emails and Sunday morning announcements. Please let us know if you need to be added to our email distribution.
