Community Service

Your Church in the Community

Whether through monetary gifts or the physical presence of members working, Covenant Presbyterian Church's presence is felt by many organizations outside of our immediate congregation.

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

Located in 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.

At Thanksgiving and Christmas, we help supply turkeys for holiday dinners.

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

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.
