The Evangelical Covenant Church has a heart for mission. Among our 850 congregations and in mission sites in more than 38 countries around the world, we strive to be found faithful to God’s call to make a difference in the lives of real people in real places. Please join in this mission by choosing gifts from this Covenant Cares gift registry.
Animals are a powerful way to make a difference in the lives of people all around the world. Animals provide valuable resources: food, wool, farming power, salable goods, and even fertilizer. And, they keep on giving through their offspring, making gifts of animals sustainable sources of food and income.
The Covenant Church faithfully works with children and families caught in the clutches of poverty, bringing hope and opportunity to people living in some of the world’s most destitute places. Children whose lives are marked by poverty lack some of the most basic resources—food, medical care, and education. Gifts for children and their families make a powerful difference today and opportunities for a more stable future.
Gifts to programs that support women give recognition to the critical role they play leading their families and communities. Women are often most affected by war, oppression, poverty, and lack of opportunity. The Covenant Church is making important strides to bring healing and to empower women to move forward with hope for the future.
The social structure of local community – with its churches, hospitals, schools, and food markets – supports families and provides social stability for otherwise vulnerable areas. These gifts make possible new resources that strengthen the community and respond to emergency needs during times of war or disaster. Keeping communities strong is a primary way the Covenant shares God’s love.
The Covenant has experienced consistent growth in size, mission, and outreach over the past two decades. We continue to build up the body of Christ by developing leaders within our denomination and helping our partner churches around the world. Gifts that support this work help strengthen the church so that all may grow deeper in Christ.
For more than 130 years the Covenant has been known for its desire to join God in God’s mission to see more disciples among more populations for a more caring and just world.
