Elevate Logo - New ColorJoin us for Elevate Student Ministries!!

Elevate Student Ministries is for students 6th-12th. It is a time to gather with friends for fun & fellowship! Join us on Wednesday nights during the school year at Riverwood Covenant Church from 6-8 pm and hang out with friends, listen to guest speakers, get out into the community to serve, have worship time and most importantly have a ton of fun!

 What is Elevate Student Ministries all about?

 Our Vision: At Elevate our students will have a safe place to connect with God and  with peers, grow in their relationship with Him, and reach the lost around them. Our Verse:  Romans 12:2 – “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing, and perfect will.”
 
New at Elevate this year:
Teaching time will be divided up into Middle school (6th-8th grade) and High school (9th-12th grade). Students will eat and have games and worship time together, then high school will have a large group teaching while middle school has small group time, then they will switch.
 
Middle School Sunday School:
Starting September 8th: Sundays, during the 10:45 am service (dismissed after worship) in Classroom 1
 
High School Bible Study:
Starting Sunday, September 8th: Sundays, 7-8:30 pm at Geo’s house (email office@riverwoodcovenant.org for the address)
 

High School Fall 2019 Calendar…

 
This fall, Geo will be facilitating the Alpha Youth program for high schoolers. Alpha Youth Series explores timeless questions about life, faith and God for a new generation.
