If you answered yes to any or all of the questions, whether you are a youth or a parent, then Generation Change at Covenant UMC might be for you!.

What is Generation Change?

Generation Change is a series of Bible studies designed to lead teens to a better understanding of God, themselves and their money—and how it all works together. Lesson videos with Dave Ramsey and his daughter, Rachel Cruze, along with engaging hands-on activities, will bring new biblical and financial truths to this generation, making them a generation of change.
