9th - 12th Grade
6th - 8th Grade
The Cove is the name for our ministry to 9th-12th grade students. "Cove" is composed of the first four letters of covenant, a word that describes the Christian's relationship with God. The Cove seeks to provide a place for students to explore God's covenant relationship. And in doing so, "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful"
|The name Vessel reminds us that we hope this ministry will become a place of safety for our students as we navigate the journey of faith together, which can take us through both calm waters and stormy ones. We also think of the verse 2 Corinthians 4:7, which describes us as vessels for God. We hope and pray that our students will become vessels of God's grace and good news.
Join us on Sunday Mornings at 10:05am in Akers Hall
as we join together to dive deeper into what it means to be followers of Christ.
The Cove Curriculum
Sunday Morning is our Weekly Discipliship opportunity. This year students will consider The Gospel Project. The Gospel Project wil help students develop a bigger perspective on Scripture and how the story of Jesus Christ ties it all together. Students will encounter the gospel through the grand narrative of Scripture.
The Story: Teen Edition
One of our main goals for our students is that they would grow in their knowledge about and their understanding of the Bible. The Story: Teen Edition tells the "one continuing story of God and His People." If you've ever just opened the Bible randomly and tried to figure out what's going on, it can be hard to see how that passage fits in with other events you're familiar with. Each week we will learn another "On-The-Ground" story in the Bible and see how it carries on the Grand story of the Bible.
The Story is a 31 week curriculum that we'll use from September through May of this year. In addition to attending class on Sunday morning, this year, we have a goal of reading the book version of The Story over the course of the school year. If your student wants to work on this goal with us, the reading is only about 10-15 pages per week to get ready for class the following Sunday. Reading along in the book is entirely optional but very worthwhile!
Copies of The Story will be available in class each Sunday for $10. Please take your copy home to read and bring it in with you each Sunday to use in class.
Wake up to a cup of gormet coffee and a snack served at our dollar cafe.
Everything costs $1 and all proceeds go to missions.
Worship Team // Open to All
The Worship Team meets weekly and is for all student musical, arts, athletics, or any other way we may be blessed to worship the Lord! All students are welcome to come, discover, and share in the gifts God has provided.
Do you want to be a part of St. George's worship services?
Students can serve as Acolytes beginning in 6th grade. This ministry is a key part of St. George’s worship services and is a fulfilling and fun part of many of our students' program involvement. If you are interested in being involved in this important ministry, please contact Frank Puryear at 646-3269.
Youth may also serve as lay readers during the 8:45 service beginning in 6th grade. If you’d like to be part of this ministry, please email Cait Clendenin.
Apostles of Sound & Video:
St. George’s is fortunate to have wonderful audio/video capabilities at our Sunday services. We control wireless microphones for 5 Sunday morning services, and we control multiple video cameras for a live video stream at two Sunday services. It requires 6 people every Sunday to operate the equipment necessary to make each service run smoothly. We are looking for student volunteers to operate the sound board, camera controls, and screen presentation during each of our Sunday morning worship services. This includes our newest Sunday service, The Table. If you are willing to learn, we will teach you! Previous A/V experience is not necessary. If you would like to be part of this ministry, please contact Jim Williams.
