Become a Covenant Congregation

Join with us to end hunger in America by feeding God’s children right here at home.

A Covenant Congregation commits, first and foremost, to pray on a continual basis for the Society of St. Andrew and those we serve.

In addition to prayer, a Covenant Congregation commits to participate in at least one program from each of the three areas listed below. This level of partnership in ministry serves to engage the entire congregation in addressing hunger in America. Most importantly, the congregation not only will learn about hunger, but it will also make a real difference in people’s lives: Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.  – 1 John 3:18
