1 Timothy 4:12
Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
The youth group is a significant part of the Covington Church of Christ and offers a full calendar of events for the youth from birth through high school. There are three groups; the youngest is the CIA, which stands for Children in Action is comprised of birth to 5th grade. When the CIA meets – it is a family event. Our next group is the KIX group, sixth through eighth graders make up this group. KIX stand for Kids in the Cross. Our oldest group is the ACTS group and is made up of kids in the 9th-12th grades. By far most of the activities planned are for this group for a variety of reasons. While some of our events are solely for the specific groups, throughout the year we have opportunities for parents and families to get involved. Chaperones are often needed for larger and longer trips parents can certainly volunteer for these trips but we do not discourage any responsible adult from being chaperones. Lads to Leaders is also very important and coordinated here at Covington. Since their foundation in 1968, the mission of L2L has been to develop youth into Christian leaders. From a group of eight boys in that first year to more than 20,000 today, their mission has remained the same.
