Jesus says in Matthew 5:13-16 that Christians are the salt and light of the world. Last Sunday in church we got to hear from several members of Covenant Life who are living examples of this passage. We’ll be revisiting their stories over the next couple weeks with the hope that you will be encouraged by the work of God through people in our church.
Mark Mitchell challenged us all to pray about how we could share the love of Christ to those hurting and in need. Several of the highlighted ministries, as well as similar ones that we didn’t have time to include, would love to have more people join them in serving and reaching the world. Please use this list to pray for these ministries as well as to consider how God may be calling you to be salt and light.
Celestial Manna | Jason and Jennifer Cloutier

Good Samaritan Advocates provides legal counseling to those who cannot afford it. Their teams include lawyers and non-lawyers who have a heart to “neighbor strangers.”

The goal is to love our neighbors through serving, developing friendships, and sharing biblical truth as they combine service projects with intensive, relational ministry.
