It is the responsibility of the Missions Committee to provide the Mission Ministry Team with information that would be helpful to them in educating the congregation on opportunities for involvement and making recommendations to the Session for funding, should that be appropriate.  This includes responsibilities for 1) Local Mission Activities and Support, 2) National Mission Activities and Support, and 3) International Mission Activities and Support.

Covenant strives to be the hands and feet of Christ in our local community and in the world.  We have many members involved in ministries in the Roanoke Valley, most notably participating in partnerships with the Presbyterian Community Center (www.pccse.org) , Family Promise (www.familypromise.org), The Salvation Army, and Meals on Wheels.

Our youth lead us in two major collections each year, Trick-or-Treat So Other’s May Eat, and Souper Bowl of Caring, both of which provide much needed food to our community.  We enjoy the friendly co-opetition among church members and invite Covenant Presbyterian Preschool to participate with us as well.

We also focus our ministries abroad, particularly in Embangweni, Malawi and Chocola, Guatemala.  We’ve had church members travel to these places multiple times over the years visiting church communities, building wells, and helping with hospital structures, supplies, and providing medical attention.  In the summer of 2017 we led a successful campaign to raise $20,000 dollars to be distributed equally among these two locations.  For the most up to date information regarding our missions, please take a look at our most current newsletter.
