- 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! 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.
After Governor Walz’s latest announcement that Shelter in Place will continue to May 18, we are continuing ministry online as we have been doing since the start. As a reminder, you can find Student Life and Covenant Kids on these social media platforms:

This is a season of change and we are sorry to report yet another staff change. Terri Bentler, our warm welcoming secretary with an amazing smile, has turned in her resignation and was done in the office on Friday. We are so sorry to see her go as she has been a long time staff member of nearly 12 years. If you would like to send a card or gift, please send it to the church, Attn: Terri and we will be sure she receives your gifts and well wishes. There will be a job posting coming shortly.
For those who may have missed it last week , Lori Brama, the church’s office manager, is retiring on May 15 after 25 amazing years of serving our church family. We will miss her a great deal. If you would like to send a card or a monetary gift, please send them to the church office Attn: Sarah, no later than May 10th. We will collect them and give them to her altogether.
