 Youth Trip to Triennium
Took place July 16-20
The youth would like to thank the congregation for their generous support of the Pave the Way fundraiser. Thank you so much for believing in our youth, for supporting them financially and through prayer. We are so grateful to each and every one of you for your love, support, and encouragement. Our stories and experiences of faith will last a lifetime:

 

Service Opportunities
Children learn to love one another by doing it.  Our children bring in food for our church's food pantry and sometimes help stock it.  We take field trips to places like the Westerville Food Pantry and work there.  We make cards for people who cannot make it to church anymore and for others who could use a good dose of love.

The Jay Fund (shorthand for “The Jay Armstrong Endowment for Youth in Ministry”) provides money to support youth ministry. This fund was established in 2014 thanks to generous gifts from Jay himself through his estate as well as from family and friends in his memory. Every year, the Jay Fund Committee determines the grant application and awarding process for proceeds from the endowment. The grants can be for mission or service (local, national, or worldwide), and can be for either expenses or capital, and can benefit Covenant’s youth or friends of our youth. The criteria are this broad so that the endowment might “enliven Jay’s giving spirit and dedication to youth ministry forevermore!” Since it was established, the endowment has raised $65,000 (and counting!) and has granted $6,000. Through the endowment, we wish to carry on Jay’s tradition of helping the Covenant youth to engage in the community through mission and service while growing their faith. 

     This year the Fund is happy to have contributed to the success of the wonderful “Pave the Way” youth fundraiser by contributing almost $3,000 in support of the their trip this summer to Triennium where they will join a gathering of youth from around the country.

Thank you!
