Our Children's Ministry Team provides leadership and vision for our children's ministry and plans the curriculum and events throughout the year.
Using The Gospel Project, children take a chronological journey through the Bible while being immersed in the Gospel at every turn. Click on any role title or area of service below if you're interested in serving or just want more information.
Our nursery ministry seeks to provide a safe and cheerful atmosphere, caring and capable staff, Bible-based learning activities, as well as age and developmentally appropriate toys and equipment. But without volunteers, we cannot do any of this.
Throughout the year, different events are made available for our children to participate in. Most notably, we have a Vacation Bible School and take our kids to Children's Camp each summer.
Using Children Desiring God, our Sunday School ministry offers a fun learning environment on Sunday mornings for children ages 3 years-6th grade. Our goal is to make sure our kids are biblically grounded, seeing God as the hero of every story, with a God-centered world view and an unshakable faith.
Adult Sunday School
Each Sunday morning, multiple classes meet to study God's Word and encourage one another in truth.
During our Sunday morning experience, we seek to be inviting and hospitable. From the moment a person enters our parking lot, we want them to feel expected, prepared for, and welcome.
Music & Worship Service
Our weekly Sunday gatherings are a time of worship, fellowship, encouragement, and the corporate study of God's Word, and it is more than just the Worship Team and Pastor who are called to serve. Sunday morning services are not events for people to merely observe, but they are to be interactive experiences which the Holy Spirit activates, a host of people facilitate, and in which all are called to participate.
Our Student Ministry leadership team, under the direction of our Minister of Student Discipleship, works to provide our students with a fun, Christ-centered atmosphere of community and discipleship.
During our Wednesday evening Youth Group is a great time and space for students and leaders to hang out, interact, have fun, and grow in their relationships with God and each other.
Throughout the year, activities are planned for our Youth to build relationships, not just with one another but with other youth in the community as well. Several of these planned activities are joint efforts with other Youth Groups from other churches.
On Sunday mornings, your Youth meet for a time of Bible study and Christ-centered interaction.
In an effort to serve and reach our community with the love of Christ, we have avenues of providing assistance to those in need in our community.
Throughout the year we plan specific events and opportunities to serve the members of our community and, we pray, earn the opportunity to share with them with the gospel.
This is the opportunity for people to do personal, direct evangelism. We absolutely want to show the gospel in our actions, but it is still necessary to share it with our words. How will people know it if no one tells them?
Missions Leadership Team
Our Missions Leadership Team helps plan the vision and schedule for the year in regard to our mission trips. We want missions to be front and center at CBC, and this team helps to make sure that desire is a reality.
Each year we seek to have several planned short-term mission trips for people to go on. These short-term trips are intended to take a person out of their routine and put them into a position where they are wholly focused on Kingdom work. The goal is to not only serve those on the mission field, but to return and translate that passion and focus into our daily lives.
Our Care Team provides just that, care for our church family members. Through prayers to words of encouragement to visits to a helping hand, we want to make sure we are building up the body in love and service.
Each Sunday evening throughout most of the school year we have in-home groups meeting all throughout Mount Vernon doing life together. These small groups are the core units through which we care for one another, mobilize in ministry, and build relationships at Covenant.
Each Wednesday evening during the school year we provide a meal for all who attend. Beyond that, we have fellowship meals, funeral meals, and provide meals for church members during times of need.
Our Cavetime men's ministry is a time for men to lock spiritual shields as they sharpen each other in the pursuit of masculine godliness and slaying their "giants".
WEDNESDAY EVENING PROGRAMS
Our Wednesday evening adult programs are geared for discipleship and as a mid-week pick-me-up to encourage people through the rest of the week.
Based on Psalm 1:3 and Psalm 92:13-14, our ladies are joining together to THRIVE as women of faith turning healthy relationship into vibrant experiences.
Administration which yields organization is a necessary component of ministry. We want to serve God with excellence and accountability, and both of those things require organization as we are sensitive to and follow the Holy Spirit.
God has blessed us with our facility and made us stewards of it. We desire to care for it and invest in it so that it continues to be functional and inviting for the sake of the gospel for years to come.
medical Response Team
While our call is primarily to provide spiritual care of people, we want to be prepared with a team of people who are are ready and able to provide immediate medical attention if and when it is necessary.
While we hope and pray that we never need this ministry, we have an obligation to care for our people, part of which is caring about their safety. This team concerns itself with church security/safety plans and procedures.
Special Events Coordination
Throughout the year we have different community and evangelistic events, and we need people who are willing to do the behind the scenes work to plan the events and make sure they come together and go as smoothly as possible.
