Covenant's Adult Mission Team is active in our local community and beyond. Teams regularly serve at the Broad Street Ministry in Philadelphia and in Reynosa, Mexico in partnership with Faith Ministry. In the past, teams have served meals monthly at a shelter in Coatesville, at Jean Webster's Kitchen in Atlantic City NJ, at the Outley and Sheila Dennis shelters in Philadelphia, and with PA Christian Endeavor (PACE) for their summer programs in Fayetteville WV. At the Broad Street Ministry and Hospitality Collective, Covenant members help meet the needs of our vulnerable neighbors. We've provided hurricane disaster assistance locally and in Philadelphia. At Faith Ministry in Mexico, Covenant team members work in the medical clinics, lead crafts, donate sewing supplies, paint rooms, paint murals, and help to build houses!

The People’s Pantry is a place where residents can come for food to get them through a rough period in their lives. The congregation of Covenant Presbyterian Church and the community at large donate everything given through the Pantry.
The Pantry is located at 384 Lancaster Ave (in the same building as the CCLC!) Anyone in the Great Valley School District and 19355 zip code who needs assistance can shop. Pantry visitors must show valid ID for each household member and a proof of residence each month.
The Pantry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization and can accept corporate checks. Click here to donate online.

Covenant Presbyterian Church was a founding supporter of Sneakers for Soldiers, which was formed in April 2018 and became a 501(c)(3) public charity in December 2018.
An infantry soldier stationed in Afghanistan asked his parents to send him new athletic shoes and when asked if other deployed soldiers needed sneakers, too, his reply was an emphatic "Yes!"
Studies have shown that time spent out of boots, in proper fitting athletic shoes, is critical to the health of the feet of our troops. In Afghanistan, extreme heat, the harsh environment, and daily exercise wreak havoc on athletic shoes. Exercising in worn out shoes is just as bad as exercising in the wrong shoe. Sneakers for Soldiers has devised a way for each soldier to choose a sneaker that best fits their feet…because all feet are different.
Our heartfelt appreciation to all the individuals and organizations for your support and generous monetary donations. With your ongoing help, we will be able to continue outfitting our deployed soldiers in Afghanistan and other areas in the Middle East with new sneakers… and put smiles on their faces! Your generosity has meant so much to all the deployed men and women that have been the recipients of new athletic shoes.

The Eric Brown Music Scholarship Fund was established at Covenant in 2006 upon the death of beloved church member Eric Brown. Eric had a deep love for people, and lived a life that quietly encouraged those around him. In his adult life he developed a zeal for music. The fund awards scholarships for music or music therapy lessons to those who are not able to privately pay the full amount.
