Every Kid to Camp (EKTC) We are well on our way to sending 68 children and youth to Covenant Pines Bible Camp this summer, as we have already received donations totaling $3391. 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.
