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 Amber Hocker at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 405-562-3200.

Garage Sale for Seminary Student
September 28: Friday, 8 am - 5 pm
September 29: Saturday, 8 am - 3 pm
Pastor Umba has been the leader of the Morogoro, Tanzania, ministry that New Covenant has supported for 12 years, but as he nears retirement the Morgoro church is investing in a young man named Frank Karoli to become the next leader. Frank speaks fluent English, is very much a part of New Covenant team visits to Morogoro, and continues to see the vision in that part of the world. He has been accepted to seminary in the US. Unfortunately, he does not have the funds to attend seminary. New Covenant is trying to raise funds to bring him to the US for seminary through a two-day garage sale at the end of September.
If you have items to donate for this upcoming garage sale, please call JoAnn (405-824-5184), or email her at email@example.com she will pick up the items to be donated or you may bring items on the day of the garage sale. You can also give by check by making a check out to the Oklahoma Methodist Foundation and putting “seminary costs,” in the memo line.

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.
