Prayer Friends of the Week:

Our prayer friend this week is Lauretta Adams. Lauretta is currently on Session in the Class of 2022 and serves as a Trustee. Lauretta and her late husband Freddie and their two children Don and Sandi joined Odell Avenue Church in the 1960’s when they moved to Marshall. Freddie was a member of the building committee for the present structure of Covenant Church. Both he and Lauretta served as Session members. Lauretta is retired as an administrator of an elder care facility. Please remember her in your prayers this week, and perhaps take a moment to send her an encouraging card or note. Mail may be sent to her at 110 E. Mission in Marshall.




By order of Session, all indoor events and activities at Covenant Presbyterian Church have been cancelled until further notice.


Session will meet on the church lawn after worship on Sunday, September 27 (having been postponed one week from the previously scheduled date).


The deadline for the October newsletter has been extended to noon on Monday, September 28.


Outdoor, socially distant Younited youth group meetings have resumed. Elementary and Mid-High groups meet on Wednesdays at First Christian Church, and the Sr. High group meets on Sundays at Covenant.


Covenant is collecting items to be donated to the Community Food Pantry. We are collecting dried and canned fruit in September. Donations may be handed to an usher upon arrival at drive-in worship.


Rather than following the assigned greeter/usher schedule, the Worship Committee invites volunteers who are willing to hand out bulletins and receive offerings at our drive-in services to contact the church office to indicate dates of availability.


The Worship Committee invites members of the covenant family to communicate announcements, joys and concerns by phone or email to the church office by close of business on Fridays in order for them to be shared during drive-in worship.


The church office is aware of volunteers who are willing to help with the needs of those trying to maintain optimal self-isolation. If you are in need of assistance with errands, please contact the church office.


Please contact David Van Horn at 660-815-7707 if you are in need of pastoral care.
