Mission at Covenant

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, Scouts,

i-Sing Silicon Valley Program, and 12 Step Groups.
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.


Local Outreach


South Palo Alto Food Closet

Covenant houses and supports the South Palo Alto Food Closet, a neighborhood resource for families and individuals in need, in Room 9.  First Sunday Food donations,

Memorial gifts at Christmas and Easter, special needs offerings, and member volunteer helpers,

have sustained this local mission for more than 40 years.

The non-denominational Covenant Children’s Center has provided weekday care and pre-school program for infants and children through kindergarten age in our Sunday School classrooms for 35 years.

Global Mission

Guatemala Mission Trip 2018

The day after Easter 2018, a group of Covenant members traveled 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 made 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.
We appreciate all the prayers for this group as the travelled and ministered during their visit to Guatemala.

Puerto Rico Hurricane Recovery Trip 2018

From June 11 to June 18, a team of 26 members representing five congregations from the Presbytery of San Jose traveled to Puerto Rico to assist with hurricane recovery work. We walked with our sisters and brothers in this time of need, hearing their stories and helping where we were needed.

We led a Vacation Bible School program for children and youth, made repairs on homes, and delivered food and water to those who lived in remote areas. Five pastors traveled with the group and hosted a workshop on stress management and self care for Pastors who are carrying heavy burdens during this time of recovery.
