Covenant Adult Mission Team (CAMT)

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. 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! To learn more, contact Barbara Rhinehart.

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.
