Join our Shoe Drive!
Covenant is joining with Northmister Presbyterian Church in their WaterStep Mission Project to help fund safe drinking water projects all over the world. Now through September 13, bring your old shoes, regardless of condition, and drop them off in the hallway outside the church office. Shoes that can still be worn are sold to an exporter, and the funds received help bring clean water to those in need. Shoes that cannot be resold are recycled. For more information, visit the WaterStep site at http://waterstep.org/get-involved/donate-shoes/.
Labels for Education
It's that time again! School will soon be back in session, including our own affiliate, Covenant Children's Academy. You can help support our schools through the Labels for Education program. Simply clip UPC codes and beverage/sauce caps from over 2,500 participating products, and drop them off in the mailbox just inside the entrance. (You can also drop them in the office.)

Covenant Hosts Pie Bake-Off
On Sunday, 21 July 2013, Hearth and Home (3185 El Camino Drive, Springfield) sponsored the first Mayberry Days. In fond remembrance of the Andy Griffith Show, the community was invited to attend this fun day with events such as sunflower seed spitting, cake walks, face painting and Aunt Bee’s Pie Bake-Off. Covenant members provided all the pies for the Bake-Off. Each baker donated two pies - one to be judged and one to be sold, with proceeds going to Christ Episcopal Food Pantry.
The event was held at Hearth and Home and it was a very hot humid day, but luckily there was plenty of space for all the Cream Pies in the Refrigerator. The Bake-Off was a big success, bringing in $220 for a very grateful Food Pantry. The winners were:
- Best Aunt Bee Pie (Overall Winner) - Kay Vasileff with her Peanut Butter Pie
- Best Cream Pie - Kay Vasileff's Peanut Butter Pie
- Best Fruit Pie - Lynne Linn's Apple Pie
- Best Other Pie - Carl Lewis' Macadamia Nut with Chocolate Chunks
Covenant Church has been working with Christ Episcopal Church for 30 years to support the Food Pantry. If you would like to make a monetary or food donation to the pantry, please contact Christ Episcopal Church at (937) 323-8651. Specific requests for July 2013 are peanut butter and pet food. They are located at 409 E. High St.
