Our outreach is
varied and worldwide. Come and share
with us as we show others the gift of caring for each other.
Urban Promise International
Camden, NJ, their mission has been to equip children and young adults with the
skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth,
and Christian leadership. They strive to fulfill this mission through
after-school programs, summer camps, two schools, experiential
learning, job training, and a host of other programs that challenge youth to
develop and realize their potential.
Christian Caring Center
Located in Browns
Mills, NJ. Every 1st Sunday of the month
we collect food for their feeding program which serves as a distribution center
for groceries and clothing, job placement advice and emergency shelter for the
homeless. Each month they go to the
woods to bring food and dental care to those folks living in tents. Both of
these groups are actively spreading the gospel to the less fortunate.
Bread of Life Food Pantry
Located in Palmyra when
a community wide collection of groceries needs to be sorted and cataloged. Our
monthly cash donations help to round out their supplies as, once a month, they
give bags of groceries to eligible hungry families. At Thanksgiving and
Christmas, we help supply turkeys for holiday dinners.
Food Bank of South Jersey
many feeding programs and charities distributing groceries in our area. They
have classes to teach children and adults good nutrition. The need is great and we support them from
our budgeted money. Locally, we have
collected supplies and sent donations to Catholic Charities PROVIDENCE
HOUSE. This is a group trying to protect
victims of domestic violence.
Catholic Charities Emergency Services
Every year, at Christmas,
Covenant members collect gifts for children distributed through Catholic Charities Emergency Services. In the summer we monetarily support
households to feed children while they are out of school for summer break.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance
In addition to these groups our Mission Team supports the PRESBYTERIAN DISASTER ASSISTANCE, an organization helping families to rebuild homes destroyed during a natural disaster. Volunteers are always needed to help.
Africa has many opportunities for helping others and the needs are varied and great. Through our budgeted donations we help support the following groups
Coates Ministries in Narobi,
Kenya was begun several years ago when Randy Coates moved his family to
Kenya and started spreading the gospel. He started a church in Nairobi
and has planted about 30 more in the outlying areas. One new project he
has is to drill wells to bring water to the villages, thus enabling
them to have a local source of water.
Friends Of Kakamega
Friends Of Kakamega was started by a
group of Quaker women from Maine who heard of many orphans, whose
parents had died from AIDS, starving and begging on the streets of
Kakamega. They decided to build a care center and, over the past few
years, have lovingly impacted the lives of over 310 children. Today
they have 50 children living at the center, 115 living at home with a
guardian, 66 teenagers have gone to high school, 24 went to colleges
or universities and 55 have benefited from an agricultural training
program. A beautiful success story. Lots of love and hard work.
Another international charity with a
direct connection with Covenant is Glenn Pruitt at Wycliffe Translators. Glenn, another former member, is working developing
software and diagnosing problems in the program translators are using
to translate the Bible into languages around the world that have never
had a Bible written in their language. He also has worked to develop
software to help protect translators in areas where they would be in
danger if their presence were known.
