From the time the volunteers raised the walls of the Sunday School rooms to the week the Sunday School classes raised money for Haiti in a bake sale, Covenant members have shared labors of love to serve God at home, in our neighborhood, and around the world. From North to South, in work trips to Sitka, Alaska, and Menaul School in New Mexico, from East to West, in sending textbooks to Liberia and adopting two Vietnamese refugee families, we have responded to needs for help in other places. Closer to home, our buildings are busy seven days a week, with a flourishing child care program, Boy Scout and other community meeting.
Collectively, we support the South Palo Alto Food Closet on our campus for needy local families with First Sunday Food and other special offerings and with volunteer help from church members. Individually, we labor with hammers for Habitat, or collect toiletries for the Opportunity Center or Christmas gifts for the Ecumenical Hunger Program. The needs in our neighborhood and other places are great, but serving in love is what God calls us to do.
Guatemala Mission Trip 2018
The day after Easter, a group of Covenant members will travel to Guatemala to visit with Brian and Sandi Thompson-Royer and the women and men they have been working with for more than four years.
From April 2 to April 10, nine of our members will make the journey to Guatemala to work, socialize, worship, and pray with the local Christians whose labors in God’s name help bring local families into Christian community and take Christianity to their neighbors.
Please remember the men and women of Guatemala in your prayers, along with the traveling members of the Covenant family. We will look forward to hearing about their trip when they return.
