Covenant Weekday Preschool, established in 1961, provides early childhood education for children ages one through four. Our program, along with our experienced teachers, provides a loving Christian environment that strives to promote the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of young children.  We strive to serve the children and families who come through our doors in a loving and Christ-like manner, providing both education to their children and outreach to the families in our community.   All funds raised at the Christmas Market will go directly back into the preschool to support our scholarship fund and improvements to our playground and classrooms.

Women of Hope Guatemala

Women of Hope (WOH) Guatemala was created to disciple women of Guatemala and to help them rise above the challenges of poverty, illiteracy and a culture of abuse and oppression.  Many of the indigenous women are trapped in a cycle of poverty with no means to support themselves and their families. WOH gives these women a safe haven where they can use their talents to earn a fair wage, and a loving Christian setting where they can participate in weekly bible studies and devotions.  To learn more about WOH visit https://wohgt.org.  This year Covenant is excited to include WOH artisan made jewelry and ornaments at our Christmas Market.
