Covenant’s History Continues: The Third 25 Years

The third installment of the History of Covenant spanning 1972 to 1997 shows a time of activity and involvement. Activities included the beginning of Covenant’s commitment to the Appalachian Service Project, the CROP Walk for Hunger, partnerships with other churches such as St. Daniel’s UMC in Chester, the Reassurance phone ministry, and work with Habitat for Humanity. Covenant sponsored many educational opportunities both on Sunday mornings and throughout the week including an AIDS Workshop and in-home small groups. While many of these activities no longer exist, Covenant’s commitment to children, education, missions, alleviating food insecurity and addressing homelessness and substandard housing continues in ways that are relevant today.
