Intersection, our Covenant Student Ministry youth group, meets at the First Covenant church house. We are open to students in grades 7-12, and visitors are always welcome.
Our Youth Director is Sara Diemer, and she is assisted by Cody Doremus, Graham League, Mark Andrews, Kristi Christianson, and Pastor Kevin Wright. Together they make a wonderful team, eager to serve the youth.
Our Wednesday evening meetings run from roughly 6:15pm - 8:45pm. We start with a time of sharing... we like to hear what's going on with everyone. Commonly, we will follow up with worship, games, dinner, and time to dig into God's Word. We are currently looking at those Bible stories you've heard 1,000 times, but maybe never really explored with the intensity that God intended.
Intersection meets year round and we typically do an annual retreat. We often go on mini-mission trips to places like JPUSA (Jesus People USA) or participate in Love Packages. We also sponsor a child through Compassion International. The youth have the opportunity to give weekly to our twelve year old boy, Salvador, from El Salvador.
We have many outings throughout the year. Some are service-oriented activities, such as raking leaves or serving at a local homeless shelter. Other opportunities are for fun, fellowship and team building, such as paintballing or caving.
Wednesday Night Meals
An important part of each youth meeting is our meal time. The youth get to sit down, share a family meal, and talk life. We would also love that if you provide a meal that you sick around and eat with us. Come get to know some of the kids that we don't have join us on Sunday mornings.

Sunday School meets Sundays at 9:00 AM in the youth house with a break over the summer and around Christmas. This is not your weekday 'School' of lectures and homework. Instead, the 'teacher' works to create a highly interactive discussion where the youth are encouraged to think and come up with answers and solutions on their own. This is done using the observation, interpretation, application method.
After spending two years going in depth through the gospel of Luke, in the Fall the students will take a journey with SCIENCE! and critically think and observe the evidence for creation or evolution. Then we will continue setting up a foundation in their faith by going through Genesis (without flannel graphs or filtered stories).

The Lord is our main focus, but let's be honest, there's nothing wrong with having fun... just a little...
