The theme of this year’s Missions Conference reminds us of this very reassuring promise made by Jesus. Despite this very difficult and restrictive time that we are living through, Jesus promises that even the gates of hell shall not prevail against His plan to build His church. But, like many activities this year, the missions conference will look very different. It is still our desire to reconnect our congregation with our missionary families around the world, but instead of a weekend conference with all the events and visiting missionaries, our plan is to have a month-long emphasis on missions from February 14 through March 7, 2021. While details are still being discussed and worked through, the month should include opportunities for us to hear from missionaries and mission representatives by way of several venues:
For its entire history, God has allowed Christ Covenant to play and active part in the building of His church throughout the world through the missionary families He has sent us, as well as through our own mission trips and international partnerships. Despite the lack of a “big event” this year, the responsibility remains.
Christ Covenant has adopted “Faith Promise” as the method of giving to the support of our missionaries around the world. It is a PROMISE to give a certain amount of money based on FAITH that God will provide those funds. Faith Promise makes giving to missions strategic and intentional, it is over and above the tithe. Faith Promise funds given to Christ Covenant go directly to help financially support 29 missionaries and their ministries. Pledges will be received through the end of March.

ADOPT A VERSE PROJECT 2020
With the help of Wycliffe Bible Translators, we will have the opportunity to participate in a very exciting Bible translation project!
Of the more than 7,000 languages in the world, there are over 2,100 with "No Known Scripture" - this means no knowledge of Jesus Christ and the message of the Gospel in their heart language. Wycliffe Bible Translators USA and its global partners are working toward a goal of starting a Bible translation program in all remaining languages by 2025.
"The greatest missionary is the Bible in the mother tongue. It never needs a furlough and is never considered a foreigner..." Cameron Townsend, Wycliffe founder.
Christ Covenant is joining this project by adopting the books of 1-3 John for a people group in a sensitive area of South Asia. This area is marked by political unrest and religious persecution so there is limited information that can be safely shared.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SPONSORED VERSES! We completed the books of 1-3 John!!
