We all have been challenged to raise awareness of human trafficking, a multi-billion dollar business second only to drug trafficking. For many years, Covenant members have been supporting programs for women who are trying to recover their lives especially through CATCH Court's program and Freedom a la Cart. Each month, we take lunch for 55 people to CATCH Court on the first Thursday. We invite you to attend Court, providing food for lunch and staying to observe the Court in session. It is also possible to help serve lunch and return to church rather than staying. If you would like to receive information about helping with the lunches, please call Barbara Marshall or or Louise Davidson.

Freedom a la Cart Toiletry Bags

Freedom a la Cart provides a $15 toiletries bag to women who are being released from jail. Covenant members have been generous with support for these bags pre-pandemic. We realize the need is still there and are asking for donations to continue this effort. If you wish to contribute, please make checks payable to Covenant and indicate "human trafficking toiletry bags" on the memo line.

To support the PDA response, text PDAUKR to 41444 "As we pray for an end to this violence, we ask the U.S. Government and our European allies to make a commitment to the Ukrainian people for a peaceful solution.

Centering Prayer
Covenant has Centering Prayer practice on Thursdays at 8:30am in the Lounge. The first 15 minutes will be an informal gathering with the practice beginning at 8:45 for 20 minutes. Centering prayer is a method of meditation that places a strong emphasis on interior silence. We allow ourselves to be totally open to God, learning how to gently release attention away from our inner thoughts.
