Our Stewardship theme for 2020 is “Love for the Life of Covenant Presbyterian Church.” Despite hardships for 10 months, it is with united joy that the Congregation, Session, and Presbytery passed the amended new Term Sheet with its counteroffer to bring Covenant LIFE, with the help of our new minister. Let’s join with Pastor Jim to work on a mission vision statement, needed repairs, and outreach to increase our membership and to bring life into our church!! The new Term Sheet with its counteroffer will provide more than the 3 initial years, but also for the future, the developmental life of our Church as well as the vision of the Presbytery. With this spirit of unity, let’s celebrate our joy and “love for the life of our church” by pledging a little more of our treasures this coming year for Stewardship. Progress and activities on stewardship can be followed on our website in Facebook or my personal twitter account: [email protected]. Love for the Life of Covenant Presbyterian Church, Maureen Chen

From Jerry Jayne, Treasurer’s Stewardship Email, Members and friends of Covenant Church—what is our vision? In recent years our vision of our future had been dominated by deteriorating buildings. We clearly did not have the financial or human resources to meet our obligations. Help from Presbytery seemed to be tied to arrangements that would terminate in three years. THIS HAS CHANGED. The responsible Presbytery committees have approved a new set of arrangements that will transfer the burden of maintaining the buildings to Presbytery, will forgive our debt to Presbytery, and will provide for our continuing rent-free use of the buildings. Covenant will be an active partner as Presbytery decides how the property will be revitalized to serve God in the best way. Upon approval by Presbytery and by Covenant’s Congregation, these arrangements will be converted to a contract. This contract will be examined and renewed after three years. This change in our prospects is mightily reinforced by our having a new pastor. Jim Allardice has had an impressive three weeks’ start, and promises to bring new harmony and vitality to Covenant Church. What can we do to acknowledge our new vision and confirm that we are unified and guided by it? Participation is the first response. As we interact in worship, Bible studies, mission activities such as Food Pantry and TLC, and in performing support tasks such as are done by the Deacons and recording treasures, we are showing one another both that the church matters to us, and that we have faith in its future. Stewardship is a second opportunity. Last year, pledges were quite unimpressive, reflecting our past pessimism. A substantial fraction of total donations were from just a few members. If we take our new vision seriously this will change. We can affirm to one another (and to Presbytery) that we see a bright future to invest in. We will enter a circle of positive feedback. As we see that others in the church share our new hope, our new hope will be confirmed and strengthened. Jerry
Louise Fung on her moment for stewardship today defined it as gratitude to God by helping the church in many ways, preparing the music, liturgy, program, space, refreshments afterwards and activities during the week. She also described the concept of tithing and encouraged us to increase our offering for 2020.
