We believe that every follower of Christ is a missionary.
Whether through serving locally or traveling with an international team, everyone can experience the joy that comes as we share the love of Christ through missions. The Mission Team of New Covenant is committed to providing opportunities for every Christian to participate in the work of Christ. We do this by providing three levels of serving:
The basic level is that everyone can be involved. Everyone can bring a canned good or non-perishable item for a food drive. Everyone can participate as we paint at Exodus House, or serve lunch at Skyline or Shiloh, or do any number of things around the Edmond and Oklahoma City communities.
The next level includes things that anyone can do. These things require a deeper commitment of time and resources, and may include serving on a mission team to the Katrina area, or on an international short-term mission team.
Finally, the top level involves developing Strategic Missions that reach particular people groups in ways that develop over a period of time. New Covenant supports several missionaries in places where we can send short-term teams to assist with long-term work, and see results of being in one place over time.
If you would like to get involved with the Missions Team, contact Jay Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 405-562-3200.

The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree is New Covenant’s annual Christmas outreach project. We support foster families connected with the Circle of Care’s Child SHARE program. Giving Trees will be in both the hallway beside the Connection Point and in Decker Hall from November 11-December 2.
The trees are decorated with an assortment of ornaments labeled with suggested gifts for the children, the families, and even some for the party! Along with gifts, the tree also has small ornaments for food baskets that we fill for each family. All gifts and food baskets are due back to the church by December 2. Gift card donations and monetary family donations are requested to be returned ASAP, (but not later than Dec 2), so that they may be put to use right away!
Volunteers are needed right away for:
Gift Tag Party on Thursday, 11/6, at 9 am in room102. We will prepare the tags and hang them on the trees.
Giving Trees on Sundays, starting 11/11 in Decker Hall and the Connection Point. We need people to assist with the selection of gift tags.

An Evening In Tanzania: Silent Auction & Dinner
December 1, 2018 @ 6:00pm at the North End
Help support education and evangelism in Tanzania through the Morogoro United Methodist Church by investing in their future leadership. JoAnn Simpson-Miller and other United Methodist women from Oklahoma are hosting a silent auction and dinner to help raise funds for Junior Mayanga and Frank Karoli to attend seminary in the United States. The evening will begin at 6 PM in the North End.
Faith Promise is a ministry that gives us, the body of Christ, the opportunity to reach across the street and to the other side of the world with the love and good news of Jesus Christ.
The funds raised through Faith Promise are the primary way we support local and global missions at New Covenant. The funds raised through the year for Faith Promise come from commitments made by families and individuals that they will use either a percentage or all of any financial blessings that God might give us over the next year. It’s not a pledge but a promise born from the belief that God blesses us so we can bless others.
