In focus this week: Re-entering society after incarceration
Hear from Kate Capitano, Blaine Sanders in worship
In July, we're featuring stories and invitations from people who are spending their summers serving others. 
  • Come to any worship service and hear from Kate Capitano, People in Mission intern, and Blaine Sanders, Covenant member and board member at Center for Community Transitions, about journeying alongside incarcerated women as they re-enter Charlotte with grace, hope and hard work.
  • Stay after worship in the Fellowship Hall for a few minutes to help assemble a flower arrangement for new residents. These folks often wonder who will welcome them back, and we can help them know there are many who look forward to doing so.

Young Adults: Creating a culture of 'welcome'
Stop by our welcome table
Located a short walk from Covenant are a number of new apartments, many of which target young professionals. Folks who visit Covenant are often not just new to our church but, also, new to Charlotte.
 
This is why we are proud to launch our Young Adults Welcome Table. Every Sunday from 10:30 to 11 a.m., we'll have a welcoming presence outside by the Fellowship Hall. Stop by for coffee and treats. And make sure you encourage visitors to check out the table. Interested in helping to support this new ministry? Contact Ian to discuss it.
