As youth navigate the social pressures of the teen years they benefit from mentoring relationships that come from an intergenerational church family. Teens have questions. Having relationships in which they feel comfortable seeking answers is huge.
At Covenant Methodist, we foster positive relationships between all generations, encouraging our youth to forge strong connections with each other, their schools and community, and most importantly with God.

Students in Worship
Recent trends indicate that many teens give up on church when they reach adulthood. Often, these are kids who’ve grown up with “kids church” and attended youth experiences, but when they become adults, they suddenly see church as irrelevant to their lives. What is going wrong? How can we keep young people plugged into church life? We think it comes down to encouraging multi-generational relationships.
You won’t find a separate student worship experience at Covenant. This may be different than other churches that you’ve attended, but Covenant holds intergenerational worship as a core value. Youth are an important part of our church family and we feel it’s paramount for them to worship with, and get to know, people of all ages. We want our youth to be involved and to recognize the value of worship and authentic relationships in their lives.
We hope that by understanding what it means to be part of a church family, our youth will be more likely to cultivate healthy relationships and to continue their faith journey into adulthood.

Being a teen in today’s world is tough. Parenting a teen in today’s world can be overwhelming.
