OCTOBER MISSION FOCUS

Our October Mission Focus will be to replenish church funds for CAMPERSHIPS. These camperships will enable more of our members, especially our younger ones, to participate in summer camps. These camps are quite expensive (average costs are between $400-$600!) Prayerfully consider giving generously so more of our church family will experience God in an awesome way.  Your giving will make a difference in their hearts and souls forever. God Bless.                                                                 

 

HELP WANTED

Our Covenant Center is a busy place. We have Sunday School classes, bridal showers, birthday parties, funeral dinners, meetings, etc. That means it also gets dirty. We have a group of volunteers who clean about once a month. We sweep, steam floors, wash tables and chairs, and clean the kitchen. We could use a few more people on our “clean team”. So, if you have a couple of hours a month to volunteer, we could really use your help. If you can help, let Tim or Linda Scaife know.
