This two-day opportunity will unpack the struggles of those who have suffered injustice and will enable you to learn of groups and ministries that are addressing great needs. Wednesday we’ll be in Los Angeles at the Museum of Tolerance to learn about the Holocaust. We’ll meet with ministries to homeless and addicted on Skid Row and more. Thursday, we’ll visit agencies in San Diego that address immigration issues, homelessness and trafficking. Cost includes round trip transportation, box lunch and facilitator/guide to help with processing the experience, feelings and sights.
We invite you to The Justice Experience— an experiential exhibit that enables us to learn more about the key justice issues addressed by the Covenant Church. It is designed to inspire you to become aware of and understand the monumental challenges of global poverty, hunger, human trafficking, abuse, criminal justice and racism.
At The Justice Experience, you will:
• Learn more about key issues
• Become aware of the plight of the oppressed
• See ways in which injustice exists in our communities
• Understand that God is a God of justice
• Be inspired to covenant with God to fight injustice
• Develop ways to reflect on and pray about injustice
• Learn about ministries that address justice issues
The Justice Experience is designed to move you from introduction to interaction; from awareness to engagement; from commitment to rootedness in Christ as you move forward.
Triennial is a time and place to connect with women from other nations, cultures, and traditions. Through Raise the Flag, we receive funds to bring to Triennial women from the countries where the Covenant serves in global mission. When we hear from voices different from our own, we all grow and learn. Help “raise the flag” of the nations of the world by making a gift to this effort when you register and pay for Triennial XIV.

The school, named Lycee Vanette, is now functioning in Karawa, Congo with more than a dozen girls attending. With the Fun Run funds, we will provide supplies and furnishings for the school to help make it a very special place for girls to gain much-needed education which then empowers them to earn wages which in turn strengthens the entire community! Don’t miss out on your opportunity to be a part of this very special effort.You are encouraged to seek pledges to boost the value of your run!
