Special Ministries of the Church
Special Ministries are also a part of Covenant’s total program. These special ministries are directly under the oversight of the session.
 
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL...
The Adult Sunday School is under the direct oversight of the session, rather than the Christian Education Committee. It may be taught by the pastor, an officer of the church, or, with special approval of the session, another qualified person. Though it is usually one class, it may at times divide into more than one class for the purpose of a select study of interest to only a portion of the church.

At times a separate Inquirer’s Class may be held at the same time as the Adult Sunday School for any who are considering membership at Covenant. However, this class is also open to all who are interested in gaining a doctrinal understanding of what the scriptures principally teach, whether they choose to join or not.
 
MUSIC MINISTRY...
The Music Ministry is chiefly the care of the Choir Director and Organist. The music of the church, especially the Sunday Morning Worship anthem, takes particular concern that the congregation is edified by content that is scriptural and style that stirs praiseworthy sentiments toward God.
 
YOUTH GROUP…
Youth Group(s) conducted by the Youth leader(s), along with whatever helpers may be needed to assist, will minister to the young people of the church and reach out to attract any who are willing to come. They will seek to blend Biblical instruction with mutual encouragement, in a format that is both edifying and evangelistic.
 
NURSERY SERVICES…
Nursery is a ministry to the children as well as to the parents. While it provides for peace and order in the worship service and childcare for relief of the parents so they can worship, it also provides a ministry to the children through Bible lessons, prayer and interaction with the nursery helpers. The nursery coordinator will draw up a schedule of volunteers and provide material and training for each nursery helper. Volunteers must be members of the church; but young people, who show sufficient maturity, may on occasion assist a volunteer, but should not be left with the full responsibility.
 
WOMEN'S STUDY…
The Women’s Study sets apart a period of time, agreed on by all, for the study of particular passage of scripture or an edifying work of Christian literature approved by the session. Special teachers and speakers may be invited with the approval of the session. Additional events may be arranged for the women to encourage mutual support of one another in the Lord.
 
MEN'S BREAKFAST…
The Men’s Breakfast gathers monthly for the purpose of eating, fellowshipping and studying together. The time is ordinarily on the second Saturday of the month, from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. This too may be the study of a passage of scripture or an edifying work of Christian literature approved by the session. Usually the Pastor teaches, but others may also be delegated.
