Guatemala Mission Auction
Covenant friends, it is time to start talking about what YOU and your family might donate to the Guatemala Auction! Generous people donated a huge variety of items last year: tickets for athletic or entertainment events; a weekend at a cabin up north; a wine and cheese party; baked goods; American Girl dolls; babysitting; knit, sewn, and quilted items; and a pickle factory tour - along with many other things. Let your imagination soar!
Auction items can be brought to the church starting Sunday, November 3. Items can also be dropped off the following weekdays, 9:00am-5:00pm. Bidding begins November 10th and ends November 17th.
All auction proceeds are dedicated to our partnership in Guatemala where we support education, health, and church leadership.
Middle Stage MOM’s NIGHT OUT!
Have you recently launched a young adult into the world? Whether your young adult child is off to college or serves in the military, is gainfully employed or volunteering, out of town or still at home, your role as a Mom has shifted. Your child still needs you, but perhaps in a different way. Let’s connect with one another as Moms, see how we’re all doing, and have some fun! What do we mean by “recently” launched a young adult? You decide! Maybe within the last couple of years? 5 years? 10 years? If you’d like to join us, we’d love to see you! Middle Stage MOM’s NIGHT OUT will be on Thursday, November 14, at 6:30 PM in the Lounge at church. We’ll have desserts, tea, and apple cider to share. Please sign-up on the Coming Events bulletin board at church or by using Signup Genius link at covenantmadison.org/events so we have an idea of how many treats to prepare. You may also contact Chris Gomez Schmidt at or Pastor Clara Thompson at with any questions.
