“Prayer should not be regarded as a duty which must be performed, but rather as a privilege to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always revealing some new beauty.” – E.M. Bounds

 

It is the privilege of Covenant Church to connect with others through prayer … and so we invite you to submit requests below or simply join us in the journey of praying with and for one another. We are blessed by many who join us in prayer from many places around the world as well as many from our own communities. Let’s pray together in the hope of the rare delight that is always revealed in our time with God!

9/16 COVENANT CHURCH: The 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament, benefitting the children in Sierra Leone, is Monday. There is no banquet this year due to COVID-19; however, there will be an week-long online auction. If you would like to register to golf, make a donation, or learn about the auction, visit this website. Thanks to all of those who attended the 2019 EduNations Charitable Golf Tournament, we were able to Raise the Roof of EduNations’ first Senior Secondary School in Rokassa, Sierra Leone! Now, we need to Send Them to School! Since the Senior Secondary School in Rokassa will function as a boarding school, our students from all 6 villages will come to Rokassa for their high school education where we will provide housing in the dormitories and a meal plan covering three meals a day for each student. Will you help us make this a reality?
 
Our goal is to raise $50,000 to Send Them to School! This fundraising goal will provide room and board to the students enrolled at EduNations Senior Secondary School in January 2021. Let’s keep the planning team and volunteers in prayer as they finalize plans and make this event a blessing to EduNations!
