Missions

"For 'everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.' How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?" - Romans 10:13-14

The mission of the church is to spread the gospel to all nations and peoples. Covenant participates in mission through supporting missionaries, organizations, and serving in the following ways:

Beyond the Walls Weekend

Covenant members get out into the neighborhood & city on a weekend and serve. Projects have included Habitat for Humanity, Casey Elementary School groundskeeping & powerwashing, Stewpot Community Services’ food collection, Rise Against Hunger meal packaging, We Will Go Ministries’ inner city projects, home and lawn care for Southern Christian Services, knitting and helping individuals in need with yard work, moving boxes, simple home maintenance etc.
