2022 The Ties That Bind
Stewardship Campaign
We are progressing toward our stewardship goal for 2022 but need your help to develop our operating budget for 2022. As of December 14, we have received pledges totaling $ 2,483,557, approximately 80% of our pledge goal. We still need over $616,000 to reach our budget goal. Thank you to those who have already pledged. If you have not pledged or can increase your pledge for 2022, you can visit, return a pledge card found in the pew racks in the offering plate during worship service, or click on the pledge now button below. We are truly blessed as a community and are counting on your support to continue our work in the community and around the world.
This Week At Covenant
Many of us struggle with the hard realities of grief, illness, and unfulfilled dreams during holiday celebrations. A candlelight service with Katherine Kerr, senior associate minister, and Lucy Crain, pastoral intern, is intended to bring comfort and re-center our focus. Join us for reflection, words, and stirring music as we seek peace in the good news of Emmanuel.
