Children's Ministry Volunteers Needed
Christ Covenant has a great mission field of nearly 300 young souls every week, ripe for impact. Children’s Ministry invites you to partner with us to help these covenant children know and love God more. We are so excited to help you find a place in Children’s Ministry where you can use your God given gifts and passions.
  We have many key positions that need the love that you can provide. If you are 7th grade to 97, we have a place for you in our nurseries (newborns - 2 years), preschool ministry (3 & 4 years old) or elementary (kindergarten-5th grade). We have needs inside the classroom and out, on Sundays at 9 AM, 10:45 AM, and 6 PM.  Come and join what God is doing in this exciting and vital ministry.
  We would love for you to learn more about available serving opportunities! Please contact Diane Dworek, Early Childhood Ministry Manager, at 704-814-1025 or or check out our Needs page on the Children’s Ministry website (

Opportunities are open for both men and women, assisting on-site or through correspondence, to provide Bible studies and encouragement. One team will be trained to invest time with prisoners on Wednesday evenings at the Mecklenburg County Jail leading small group Bible studies. A second team of mentors would work with the PCA’s Metanoia Ministries to grade and mail back Bible studies offered to prisoners throughout the United States.
