We are a safe place for teenagers to be known and to build relationships with trusted peers and adults who care for them and desire to grow in faith with each other.


We are deeply committed to growing and deepening Christian faith, allowing space and experiences for teenagers to talk about their faith and provide opportunities to encourage one another.


When we belong + are growing in what we believe, a transformation begins to happen. We start to become the people we were created to be. We are about life transformation through the power of the Holy Spirit.


All youth are invited to participate in our ongoing ministries at First Covenant.



We occasionally do special things outside of the Sunday + Wednesday routine to serve, learn + grow relationally. All events for incoming 7th-exiting 12th graders and held at First Covenant Church unless otherwise noted.
