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 7 through March 7, 2021. This month will include opportunities for us to hear from missionaries and mission representatives.
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.
ADOPT-A-VERSE PROJECT 2021!

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 24 missionaries and their ministries. Our 2021-22 goal is $275,000. Pledges will be received through the end of March. For more information on Faith Promise, click here.
