Stay connected amid turbulent times
“And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”

Campus & Staff Updates
Acting on public health recommendations, Covenant leadership closed the campus at the end of Monday and implemented these procedures:
- Staff members have prepared and will work exclusively from home for the foreseeable future.
- Direct dial phone lines for staff have been forwarded to cell phones. The main office number will provide access to the pastoral emergency line. The general mailbox will be checked throughout normal office hours.
- Email access will continue as normal. Mail will continue to be received and pledges/gifts will be processed as normally as we are able.
- All meetings will be conducted via Zoom or conference call with no in-person meetings held.
Caring for each other
- Hourly Employee Relief Fund: Covenant has 50+ hourly employees (including child care, food service workers and musicians) who are facing potential under-employment in the coming weeks due to canceled meals, rehearsals, etc. A fund for employee support will allow the church to be as generous as possible. You can donate here. (Choose Employee Relief on drop-down menu).
- Covenant Members Fund: Many in our congregation are also facing financial vulnerability due to reduced work hours and eliminated positions. We would like to support them through our Congregational Care Ministry. You can donate here. (Choose Member Support on drop-down menu).
- Crisis Assistance Ministry: Even after the COVID-19 pandemic has eased, the economic crisis will be long-lasting. A challenge grant will double our impact in helping Charlotte neighbors to overcome financial hardship.
- Tutors for QC Family Tree - Our friends in West Charlotte are seeking people to serve as online tutors for youth who are out of school. Click here for an interest form.
- Loaves and Fishes - To meet the increasing demand, the agency has added volunteer shifts for packing even more emergency food boxes in its warehouse.
- Meals for displaced students: Covenant is hosting two Queens University students on our campus. These young people had nowhere else to go. You can sign up to deliver a meal.
- Urban Ministry Center/Men's Shelter of Charlotte: Through two shelters and a day services center, the organization serves 600 people experiencing homelessness, often in crowded situations. See a list of urgent needs.
Missing the music at our contemporary worship services? Us too. Here’s a playlist to remind you of worship. While listening at home, you might consider writing down the names of people or places you are praying for and/or light a candle.
