For thirty years Covenant Methodist has maintained a “Sister Church” Relationship with Buenas Nuevas Lutheran Church in the El Salvadoran village of El Paisnal.
In addition to many Covenant delegations to El Salvador, Covenant Methodist has had the opportunity to help El Paisnal’s children with a scholarship fund that provides tuition, shoes, uniforms, and basic school supplies.
For $130 a student is provided a full year of these supplies. We have been able provide scholarships to nearly 100 students every year. (Donations in any amount are gladly accepted and appreciated.)
The fund also supports “Saturday School,” where students study English and basic computer skills. These classes are taught by former scholarship recipients.
Giving is easy! If giving online, navigate to the ‘Give’ tab and choose ‘Give to Sister Church Scholarships’ in the dropdown menu when entering your information. If giving by check, indicate Sister Church Scholarships in the memo line.
Eden Community Gardens is a partner program with Covenant. Have you seen the raised beds and beautiful fountain north of our building? Learn more about its mission here.
