"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 grounds keeping and power washing, 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.
Casey Elementary School
Covenant is an adopter of Casey, with members serving as weekly reading buddies or tutors and filling occasional special roles like science fair judges, arts performers and “facility sprucers.”
Habitat for Humanity build
Covenant partners with New Hope Baptist Church each fall to work on a Habitat for Humanity project.
Covenant short-term mission trip through Salt & Light Ministries is in June, and usually in January/February there’s a smaller Salt & Light trip, which Slade & Susan Exley coordinate.
Covenant short-term mission trip through The Outreach Foundation is every other year.
Covenant members knit hats, scarves, washcloths and other items for those who have need. A message of God’s love is attached to these handcrafted gifts.
Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels is a local mission that provides hot meals 15 times a month for 24 elderly, indigent people. Covenant cooks and delivers food 4 times a month.
Mission Rummage Sale
Semiannual, usually late August/early Sept & March. Church members are involved as volunteers during the setup and sale, and they contribute items for sale. Items can be donated throughout the year. The money raised is used by the Missions Committee to meet unexpected needs that come to the committee’s attention.
Stewpot Community Services
Stewpot, located in downtown Jackson, serves a hot meal every day to anyone in need. Covenant prepares meals and serves on the 4th Sunday every other month.
