Cove Kids - A Partnership with Families

Our ministry exists to REACH our friends for Jesus, to CONNECT with other believers, to HONOR his presence in our lives, to GROW in our relationship with Him, and to challenge the growing to DISCOVER their ministry.”

This is our purpose, our vision for Cove Kids. Helping children grow in their relationship with God is a biblical partnership that involves the family and the church. The church was never intended to be a substitute for the home. So how can the church come along side our families, families, like Sarah and I, families like many of you? Right now Cove Kids is taking children and students on a path of discovery thru our weekend services, special events, and activities. We want to come along side you…our parents…on this path of discovery as well.

What I mean by this is we want to equip you with the tools to have those intentional faith talks with your kids. We can encourage our parents to take advantage of those God moments that happen day to day. So that our kids are not just hearing it at church but they are hearing it at home too. Could you imagine all of our parents using teachable moments around the dinner table, on the playground, at the soccer field, in the car…you name it!!! Talk about making an impact on a generation…

As a church, our goal is to encourage and equip parents to become the primary spiritual influence to their children. We want to be the coach and the cheerleader to families, with the mindset, that we are allowing opportunities for life change with parents AND their kids.

Let us be the coach by providing training, tips, and practical resources for families ( Parent Classes, Family Events, Books, Take-Home Handouts, Email Blasts, Blogs, etc…). Stay tuned to The Cove’s website for class opportunities and for family events coming up. Also stay tuned to our Cove Kids Blog to keep informed with all the awesome things happening in Cove Kids every week.

Let us be the cheerleader by supporting you and being there for you along the way. We love praying!!! If there is something you would like us to pray for check out our website or if you ever have any questions email us at

My son Trevor is going to spend an eternity with our savior because of the partnership my family has with CoveKids, hundreds of other children and students have come to know Jesus, and hundreds of parents have come to know Christ at The Cove Church. If it stopped right there this would be considered a success story!!! But I believe it in my heart this is just the beginning!!! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing us to play a small part in the spiritual formation of your children.

I am excited about the opportunity to see life change…so what do you say we make it happen? Together…

Serving the greatest families ever,
