Message from our 2021 campaign chairs

This year has been anything but normal. We have all had to adjust to a new way of doing things - whether at home, virtual learning for our children, caring for our families during quarantine or working remotely. Covenant has also had to embrace adapting to these new environments. That is why we have chosen the theme of perseverance for Covenant’s stewardship campaign

The challenges and needs are not unique to 2020, which is why we cannot take our foot off the gas for next year. In keeping with that metaphor we have chosen Hebrews 12:1 as our motivation, “Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

Over the course of the next few weeks we are inviting each of you to join us in this race. The race is not optional for Covenant. The neighbors, mission partners, families, students, and members who depend on Covenant need to know that we are ready. We have a race to run and it’s going to take your commitment, your time, your talents, and your financial gifts to help us reach the finish line.

Will you join us? Will you run with perseverance? See you at the starting line!
