Heifer International Mini-Market is Sunday, February 1
What is a Heifer International Mini-Market? The Heifer Mini-Market is a celebration fair when Sunday School classes display all that they have learned about world hunger and the Heifer animals they have been studying. There are children dressed like Heifer animals and other surprises. Adults are invited to donate coins and money to Sunday School class banks and purchase food from a bake sale. BRING YOUR COINS and join the fun at 10:15am in the Bradfield Cafe. Our goal is to raise $2,500 to give to Heifer in Honduras!

Informational Meeting for Covenant's June Honduras Mission Trip
Sunday, February 1st at 12:00pm in the Covenant's Lounge
Do you want to spend June 17th-26th learning, serving and growing in this impoverished Central American country? If you have a spirit of adventure and can handle latrines, mud, loud roosters and cozy sleeping conditions, this might be the experience for you! The cost will be about $1,000/per person. Contact Pastor Charlie Berthoud as soon as possible if you are interested.
We continue to support education and health mission work in Guatemala and we hope to have a trip there in the future.

Start Thinking About "Trash & Treasure!"
The Annual "Trash & Treasure Sale" is not until Saturday, March 7, but now is a good time to start collecting things in a box in the garage or the basement for this big event. The sale is the big fundraising activity for our high school youth summer trips. Starting February 22, we will be collecting in-house donations of furniture, gently used clothing, sporting goods, housewares, jewelry, books, DVD's, artwork, hardware, small electronics and more. We DO NOT accept computers and old tube monitors, TV's, baby cribs and car seats, or full-sized appliances.

Questions about a donation? Contact Youth Ministries Coordinator, Steve Royalton at 608-233-6297. The youth will donate 10% of the net earnings from the sale to outside charities.
