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.”
Summer Schedule:

We are so excited to be hosting programming at Riverwood again! We want to do everything we can to keep everyone comfortable and safe on our property. Due to state regulations, these are our guidelines for activities at Riverwood:
  • All youth events will be held outside on the Riverwood grounds. No access to the building will be available. We have portable restrooms onsite. We will notify you as soon as possible if plans have to change due to weather.
  • Masks are recommended, but not required.
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided as students arrive and leave.
  • Social distancing of 6 feet between people is recommended.
  • Any food or drink provided will be prepackaged.
  • We will follow park guidelines regarding the events at Lake Rebecca
  • Regulations are changing at a rapid pace; please be prepared for any of these to change as needed. We will be watching the state guidelines closely and will adjust events as necessary, notifying parents promptly.

Swimming beach with tubing option
