Souper Bowl Sunday, February 5th

Our youth will hold soup pots at church doors on Souper Bowl of Caring Sunday, February 5, 2017.  They will join young people in churches across the country to collect money for those who are hungry and hurting. In 2016, over $10.5 million in cash and food was collected by Souper Bowl of Caring participants for local charities including our $153 for Covenant Soup Kitchen. All of the money collected is donated to a charity selected by the participant – none of the money is sent to the Souper Bowl of Caring headquarters. Organizers only ask that each participant report their collection so national totals can be determined and announced. Since the Souper Bowl of Caring began in 1990, more than $100 million has gone to help people in need.  Please support the youth of our church in this effort to “love our neighbors” by dropping your dollar in the soup pot on February 5.  Our Souper Bowl donations go to Covenant Soup Kitchen.

Blessed to be a blessing.

The new Covenant Bible Study Group is finding a way to strengthen their faith by studying the scriptures and sharing together in class. As we explore God’s action creating covenant with the world, with God’s people and with us, we hear God promising to bless us that we may be a blessing. We have the special opportunity to be a blessing for our community. Through our participation with WAIM, the Windham Area Interfaith Ministry, we join with congregations and people of faith throughout our community and the surrounding area to improve the lives of people who might otherwise be forgotten. This month we hold WAIM Sunday on May 15. This gives us the opportunity to celebrate the work of WAIM and to have a special collection to support this vital work. As a special feature the WAIM truck will be here so we are asking members to bring their donations of clothing, furniture or other items to be sent on to WAIM. The following Saturday, May 21, is our day to volunteer at WAIM. We come to church to be blessed through the strengthening of our faith. From that foundation we seek to be a blessing for others. Through it all, we do it together, and that is wonderful!
