What is a Covenant Group? Covenant groups are small groups of guys or girls all of the same age and gender that come together and meet on a regular (weekly) basis. They have one (or two) primary leader(s) who are committed to setting a Godly example and pouring into the lives of the youth in their group. The groups are structured around the Bible and creating strong, authentic Christian fellowship among group members.
Are you a student interested in being in a Covenant Group or are you an adult interested in leading one? Sign up online: I am interested in a Covenant Group!
