Sunday School classes meet from 9:40 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Sunday in the education buildings located on the north side of the church property.
Our Christian education program at Covenant seeks to follow Paul's exhortation to take every thought captive and to be renewed in the Spirit of your mind. Classes are offered for all ages, both youth and adults. Youth classes are organized by age; families which desire to study the Scriptures together may do so.
Our youth Sunday School classes use curriculums produced by our denomination, the Presbyterian Church in America.
We are thankful to be able to have in-person instruction. We will continue social distancing where possible.
Note, we provide a nursery during our Sunday School time, 9:40 - 10:30 a.m.
Adult classes are offered each quarter and run for 13 weeks. In order to promote balanced growth, teaching is rotated through the Old Testament, the New Testament, Doctrine/Theology, and Christian Living.
Summer Quarter, June 5 - August 28, 2022, in person

Ang Chen leads the class in the study of Ecclesiastes. The class meets in the Fellowship Hall from 9:40–10:30 a.m.
Ecclesiastes is upfront about the challenges that we face in life. "Under the Sun," we live in a society corrupted by sin. Even as followers of Christ our remaining sin continues to tempt us to be the masters of our own lives. Qoheleth, called the Preacher, exhorts us to recognize our creatureliness and to fear God―His purposes are impenetrable and His orchestration of events is beyond our comprehension. Qoheleth points us to the right way to live: ----We are to receive life as a free gift.
----We are to enjoy our portion from God.
----We are to live wisely even if it doesn't always pay dividends under the sun.
This is our whole duty to God under the sun. On our last days on earth, our bodies will fail, but believers are secure in Christ. It will be the best day of our life when we depart from this world!
Winter Quarter, December 5, 2021 - March 6, 2022, in person
Scott Baker led the class in the study of Zechariah, Chapters 7-14.
While Zechariah might be one of the "minor" prophets, his vision of history and the sovereignty of God in providence and salvation is anything but minor! Zechariah looks down the tunnel of time from his day in the Sixth Century BC and foresees the rise of Alexander the Great, the conflict of the Maccabees, and the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. But most of all, he looks forward to the Messiah, Jesus Christ. The goal of this class is not only to explain the text in its historical context but also to look at how the fulfillment of these prophecies is relevant to Christians in the 21st century.
