Each week we are asking our congregation to be in prayer for one of our supported missionaries or local mission agency. This week we ask that we each bring Covenant World Relief to God in prayer.
This week our mission emphasis is on Covenant World Relief. We are asking everyone in the congregation to hold up this ministry in prayer as leaders make decisions daily about how best to allocate the resources that are collected each fall.
Covenant World Relief has been the Evangelical Covenant Church’s response to human suffering and injustice in the world for more than 60 years. Through disaster relief and community development, individuals, families, and communities are transformed CWR’s mission is to join God in loving, serving, and working together with the poor, the powerless, and the marginalized.
This Sunday we will have the opportunity to meet the Director of Covenant World Relief, Dave Husby. Dave will be with us in worship this weekend, and we look forward to learning more about how God is using our dollars around the world.
Please be intentional about praying throughout this coming week that God will use the money and programs of Covenant World Relief in effective ways and that political and economic conditions will be improved dramatically as God’s love and power are evident in each project. Also begin planning for how each of us can increase our financial support of Covenant World Relief this fall.
