We'll honor teachers -- at Covenant and around the world
The school year isn't ending like we expected, but teachers are still working hard (from a distance!) to nurture and inspire. A Covenant team honored the staff at Highland, our CMS partner school, by supplying gift cards and cookies, painting the school rock and inviting folks to wave and honk as teachers arrived for their gifts.
This week in worship: We'll highlight the amazing work of our partners in education. You're invited to submit a photo of a teacher in the Covenant community. A montage will accompany the opening hymn. Click here to submit.

A way to support vulnerable seniors
Volunteer teams will serve meals
The missions team has taken on a new project: Serving boxed meals to seniors who are staying at a hotel through Urban Ministry Center during the COVID-19 crisis.
Volunteers age 12+ will work in the hotel lobby to get meals ready for distribution and check off guests after they pick up their meals. We need 4-6 individuals (or 2-3 families) to commit to sharing weekly time slots for Tuesday dinners and Saturday lunches. Starts this week!Contact Lucy Crain to get involved.
Bring canned goods to the church
Friendship Trays will deliver to those in need
Unable to bring in volunteers during the pandemic, Friendship Trays staff has stepped up to personally deliver meals. They are running longer routes and running low on canned food items for recipients.
How we can help:
You can bring nonperishable food donations to the church's Welcome Center drop-off spot. The organization specifically needs canned chicken/tuna and vegetables.
