Covenant 56 is a new ministry of NCC whose mission is to provide fifth and sixth graders with exciting activities, worship, and relevant biblical teaching that reaches them at their level, in a positive, youth-like atmosphere, and helps provide a smooth transition out of Covenant Kids into Covenant Students.
Utilizing materials from Life.Church, the ministry that created the YouVersion system, our fifth and sixth graders will experience incredible ministry specifically designed for their ages and understanding, in the context of an atmosphere that is exciting and relevant. Teens who are a part of Covenant Students, along with key adult leaders, facilitate each service in the Outpost located at the back of the campus where Covenant Students meets on Wednesday nights.
As a reminder: When you sign up your student at the Check In Kiosk, you will be given a parent tag with a code that matches your student’s name tag. The only person who may pick up your student is the person who holds this parent tag. If your student should need you during the service, the parent tag code will appear on the screens in the Main Auditorium or in the foyer.
Covenant 56 is a unique in that both the student and children’s ministry is actively involved in the operation of the ministry. On Sundays, the leadership of Covenant Students, along with strategic adult volunteers, facilitates C56 in the Outpost. On Wednesday night, Covenant Kids provides an activity and service time in the ETCS Gym.
The purpose of this setup is to create the smoothest possible transition from the Covenant Kids Ministry to the Covenant Student Ministry, but also to make sure each student is comfortable and feels confident in each service. We believe the partnership of both ministries to facilitate C56 is a great way to meet the needs of the fifth and sixth grade students within our body.
