Youth Covenant

Each year the students create a covenant. An agreement created by the youth, and to be honored by us all. This years covenant is as follows.

Created 10/09/2022 by youth and leaders

We will…

  • “Try our best”

  • Find a “balance between chaos and calmness”

  • “Speak so nice, not so mean”

  • Have “open minds, and open hearts”

  • Be “inclusive, and non judgmental”

  • “Listen to others”

  • “Participate with a positive attitude”

  • “What is shared at youth group stays at youth group, unless it harms yourself or others” 

  • Be “empathetic and understanding”

  • “Honor your emotions, and others”

  • Have youth group be “a place where we feel like we belong”

  • “Respect yourself and others, (their emotions, opinions, bodies…)”

  • Be “Affirming of all genders, races, sexual orientations, and backgrounds”

If this space, covenant or events sounds like something you or your young person would like to explore more reach out to Sonrisa Cortes, Director of Youth Ministries, for more information. email
