Church Choir

Music plays an important role in our worship experience and in the life of our church. It draws us into God’s presence and encourages us to participate in worship.

 

The Music Ministry offers a wide variety of opportunities for those interested in using their musical talents to serve the Lord. The choir leads our congregation into a significant worship experience through our music ministry.

 
 

Fika (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈfiːˌka]) is a concept in Swedish (and Finnish) culture with the basic meaning "to have coffee", often accompanied with pastries or sandwiches.

 

Our version of Fika is held at one of our women’s homes who graciously hosts the event. We have a wonderful time to share stories and seek insight from one another.

Nursery & Toddler Care

One-Ton Garden

 

The Covenant Church of Schaumburg’s garden has yielded over 5,000 pounds of fresh produce. This produce has been donated to the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry each year.

 

Typical crops include: tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, bush and pole beans, asparagus, eggplant, zucchini, pumpkins, and sunflowers.

 

We also plant a variety of flowers in the garden.

 

We typically rotate the plantings and try new vegetables and flowers to grow each year. It all depends on what seeds our Gardener, Steve, has up his sleeve!

 

Opportunities to assist with the One-Ton Garden change depending the time of year. Steve always needs help with planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, and closing the garden down at the end of the season. Help is always welcome.

 

Please use the Contact Us page to reach out to Steve to learn more.
In the late summer, children from our Sunday School classes carve their names into the pumpkins. When the pumpkins get larger, the early carvings will grow too.

ROMEO's

The Retired Old Men Eating Out (aka ROMEOs) is a group of men that go out as a group and enjoy breakfast or lunch together. A time for bonding and laughing and good company is had by all.

 
 

The first Thursday of each month and every other Wednesday during Lent, we host a Soup and Bread dinner around 6:30 pm followed by a short devotional by Pastor Dan.

The Prayer Chain Ministry at the Covenant Church of Schaumburg is a group of people who have a dedicated prayer life and who pray for the needs of others. Our prayer chain provides an essential communication link with our members and friends.

 

It began in 1985 recognizing God’s presence and has continued in His power to calm and guide us in life’s tests and trials.
To learn more about our prayer chain or to submit a prayer chain request, please use our Contact US page.

 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7)

 

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1Thessalonisans 5:16-18)

Stewardship

 

"Every faculty you have, your power of thinking or of moving your limbs from moment to moment, is given you by God. If you devoted every moment of your whole life exclusively to His service, you could not give Him anything that was not in a sense His own already." 

– C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

 

Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). The Covenant Church sees stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. It’s about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity.

Women Ministries

"The Evangelical Covenant Church is committed to advancing God’s kingdom through ministries that equip women to grow, serve, and reach out with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through leadership training, retreats, and global opportunities, the Covenant Church connects women in transformational relationships and unites them in Christ to impact our world."

At Schaumburg Covenant, we have a growing Women Ministries group that meets monthly and who love to serve God and help others.

 

Our youth group offers a safe place for youth (grades 6 through 12) to feel at home in this family of faith and to be nurtured by the Word through Christ.

 

What can you expect at youth group?

 

The youth meet monthly for games, songs, snacks, Bible study, and small group discussion to grow in grace and knowledge (2 Peter 3:18). Youth groups meet in the youth room, connected to Fellowship Hall.

 

Confirmation for 7th and 8th graders is a two-year journey of reflection and study in the Old and New testaments, theology of the Christian church, and learn what it means to “follow and believe”. Senior high students continue to
nurture their faith through Sunday School. Both Sunday School and Confirmation meet at 9:30 am on Sunday mornings.
