Covenant Ministry

NextGen Ministries

  • Covenant Kids  – Each week until we meet again, there are Family Activity Bags that coincide with lessons for kids ages Pre k – grade 5! They are located in the totes outside the north entrance. It’s a great way to bring in a faith conversation with some added fun!
  • Camp Registration!  Registration forms are available to pick up at the Information Center.  ALL registration is done online at bluewatercovcamp.org – no registrations are sent in through the church.  Scholarship monies are available for camp (NOT for the deposit).  Forms are available in the church office. PLEASE NOTE:  There is currently NO bus this year.  We encourage you to carpool and make arrangements to get your children to camp.

Outreach

United Way of Bemidji Area is coordinating face mask donations for homeless shelters, the Bemidji School District, and local agencies.  Thanks to an Anderson Fabrics donation, we do have fabric available!  If you would like to sew masks, please text Annie at 218-209-5514 and tell her how many adult and how many children masks you plan to make and if you need fabric.

You may use any pattern you like or use one of the ones listed below.  Multiple patterns are available online and on YouTube.

Completed masks can be dropped off to the United Way office at 716 Paul Bunyan Dr NW between 11am-4pm Monday through Friday. Please call 218-444-8929 in advance to arrange drop off.

Disclaimer: These face masks are not meant to replace medical grade surgical face masks. They are an extra layer of protection for our local schools, shelters, and agencies.

Please share this with anyone who is willing to help.  We will have this up on our Facebook page so feel free to share that information as well!  Thank you for joining the fight against COVID-19!
