Covenant Presbyterian Church makes a difference to the people of San Antonio and beyond!
Covenant Food Pantry & Community Garden
The Covenant Food Pantry provides direct help to people requesting assistance at the church. Reusable grocery bags are packed with nonperishable items and are kept on hand for distribution. Covenant members and friends provide monetary donations and nonperishable items to the Food Pantry. (See list of Food Pantry Items needed below if you wish to donate nonperishable items.) Also, we have a dedicated group of gardeners who grow fresh fruits and vegetables on the church grounds to help supplement the Food Pantry. If you are interested in volunteering in the Community Garden, let the church office know.
In addition, several local organizations have been long-time Covenant ministry partners. Covenant has been a Christian Senior Services (Meals on Wheels) satellite delivery site for many years, and members and friends deliver meals to homebound individuals five days a week. Habitat for Humanity, San Antonio Metropolitan Ministries, and the Christian Medical Dental Association are among the other local missions Covenant members actively serve with volunteers. The San Antonio Food Bank, Mission Road Developmental Center, I Care San Antonio, and many other local service organizations receive regular financial support from our members.
Our mission extends beyond our local community. Presbyterian ministries we support in South Central Texas include John Knox Ranch, Presbyterian Children’s Home & Services, the Presbyterian Pan American School, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, the House of Neighborly Service, and Proyecto Amistad, part of Presbyterian Border Ministry.
Organizations we serve include Kairos Prison Ministry, the Presbyterian Pan American School, and Proyecto Amistad, part of Presbyterian Border Ministry. Additionally, there are annual mission trips for youth and adults to outlying areas, including the Texas-Mexico border and the Coastal Bend for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Covenant financially supports missionaries and mission activities throughout the world, including long-term relationships with missionaries in Kenya, South Africa, and Belarus.
