A new network: Presbyterians in Covenant with Children

Presbyterians in Covenant with ChildrenPresbyterians in Covenant with Children unites Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations and groups in intentional ministries of justice and compassion with and for children in our congregations, communities, nation and world through worship, education, service and advocacy

This is an invitation for your group or congregation to become a part of a new network of Presbyterians who care about children and who want to make a difference with and for them.

Through Presbyterians in Covenant with Children, we hope to provide a dialog among churches and groups of all sizes already doing great things and seeking to do more.

How do you become a part of this network?

  1. Engage in a discernment study in the Presbyterians in Covenant with Children Introductory Booklet. Engage in the three-session study in this booklet to reflect on what you are already doing with and for children and what steps God is calling you to take.
  2. Create your own covenant listing ways you already minister with and for children as well as new ideas you intend to implement.
  3. Send the completed covenant to:

    Presbyterians in Covenant with Children
    c/o Office of Child Advocacy
    100 Witherspoon Street
    Louisville, KY 40202-1396

In response to your covenant, you will receive further resources and information, including a certificate and a covenant ceremony to be used in worship. Plans are in the works for a social network where congregations and groups that are a part of the network can share what's working, celebrate successes and advocate together. Please give prayerful consideration to becoming a part of this network. Together, with God's help, we can make a difference!

  • This is outstanding! I look forward to participating in this new network...both through The LOGOS Ministry and my local Presbyterian church (and encouraging it in the Baltimore Presbytery). YEAH! by Liz Perraud on 07/28/2011 at 5:47 p.m.
