At Covenant, we take seriously Jesus’ call in Acts 1:8 to be witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. In this Bible verse, Jesus was pointing out several geographic locations both close to home, nearby, and far from the places we work and live. As the church, we are the hands and feet of Christ wherever we find ourselves. That means we are challenged to help our neighbor next door, those in need in our community, and show compassion for people we may not know, in places we may never visit. God is at work and when you are a part of Covenant, you are too!
When we challenge ourselves to show compassion for people who live far from our cultural reality, we learn to respond to others who might struggle with the most basic needs of everyday life.
At Covenant we are committed to being in ministry, praying for, and supporting Life for Children Ministry, which helps Kenyan children orphaned due to the HIV/Aids epidemic.
Covenant supports two missionaries in Nairobi, Kenya who work with youth through BlueSky Global.
Covenant also supports UMCOR (United Methodist Council on Relief) by sending financial donations which are used to aid in relief around the world.
