In the pasWorld and Local Missions:
Sometimes churches like ours are accused of not caring about the lost and the cause of world missions. Such generalizations are not true about Christ Covenant Church. On two different occasions we sponsored Wycliffe Bible Translators and their aviation wing JAARS (Jungle Aviation and Radio Services) at the Midland Barstow Airport to inform the public about the ongoing work of Bible translation.
In the past we have supported a number of career missionaries in places as diverse as Japan, France, Germany, and the Ukraine. Through our denomination we are supporting missionaries in Uganda, Haiti, Uruguay, Quebec, Thailand, Ukraine, Japan, and several other countries.
We are committed to local missions too as evidenced by our support of Life Clinic of Midland and other agencies in our community.
We are also interested in short term missions. In 2011 we sent out our first short-term missions team to work on a First Nations Reserve (Cree) at Moose Factory, Ontario (at the mouth of James Bay). In recent years members of our church have worked in Quebec City assisting a sister congregation affiliated with Eglise Reformee du Quebec (ERQ) with their English 4 Kids and English 4 Teens programs. We continue to look for new opportunities to serve.
