Our Mission Partners
Alternative Christmas Market
The Alternative Christmas market is a church-wide community event that celebrates our mission partners by providing a one-day market meant to both raise money and create awareness about the current ministry and mission opportunities Covenant is involved with. In 2018 the Christmas market raised almost $15,000 that went to support organizations like Presbyterian Home for Children, the Heifer Project, the Vine Counseling Center, Covenant Weekday Preschool, and many more.
Kids 2 Camp
A week at Camp Maranatha can be very rewarding for our own kids, but for a child whose family struggles to pay bills, he/she may never have the life-changing experience of attending a summer camp. A week in a natural environment with all the fun activities Camp Maranatha has to offer can be a dream come true. The Maranatha staff will provide tender loving care in the name of Jesus Christ.
Ridgecrest Elementary, located just down Drake road from Covenant, is a wonderful community of children and families that many in Covenant support through reading initiatives and staff lunches.
The Covenant Crafters make (and pray over) prayer shawls that are given out to anyone who would like one. Special baby blankets are also given to babies who are baptized at Covenant. The crafters meet the fourth Tuesday of every month from 11am-1pm in room 102.
The purpose of the Mission Stitchers is to bless others. The stitchers meet the fourth Monday of every month, January-October. The group is dedicated to making pillowcases that go to Huntsville Hospital Children’s Hospital and to a local doctor’s office. The group makes between 300-500 pillowcases each year. Sewers and non-sewers are welcome.
Local Mission Partners
Second Mile Development
Second Mile Development (secondmile.net) was started in part by many members of Covenant to support and promote the flourishing of the Terry Heights community. Under the leadership of Bill McDowell, Second Mile has grown to support a preschool, a thriving thrift store, a baby thrift store, the Parent Parties curriculum and a Pride for Parents program. Second Mile values relationships and works carefully to cultivate these across the community in which they work. Dignity is a high value to Second Mile and they seek to preserve and uphold the dignity of those within their community of reach.
