Our Life Together
ALERT: Scam in the East Saint Paul Neighborhood - We want to alert you of a recent scam going on in the FCC neighborhood, targeting homes nearby our church. There is a teenager going door to door collecting funds for a Youth Center that First Covenant Church is supposedly building. Please be aware that this is a scam. If this happens to you, or you have more information, please call the non-emergency St. Paul police number: 651-291-1111.
Sound system volunteers are needed! Want to learn a new skill? We are looking for a few more volunteers, (age 18 or older), to operate the sound system during Worship. No prior experience is needed, as training will be provided, with side by side support initially as needed. The commitment would be to run the sound board once a month or so. Ifinterested, please contact Richard Voth, email@example.com, or Mike Hult, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Kid to Camp (EKTC) We are well on our way to sending 68 children and youth to Covenant Pines Bible Camp this summer. We need your help! You’re invited to give to our EKTC fund by returning your tax-deductible donation (checks written to First Covenant Church) in the offering or to the EKTC mailbox in the church office. Check out our camp display in Upper Fellowship Hall to pick up a brightly colored giving envelope, see how many kids we have attending, funds received, and amount yet to go! Thank you for your generosity in ensuring that all kids who want to go to camp, are able to attend.
