Below is an excerpt of our July 2011 News and Notes. The full online version can be found at Covenant Community Services News and Notes ~ July 2011.
The “dog days” of summer have been off and on in 2011 while the pace and momentum at Covenant has been relentless. We are excited as we watch God move in so many areas and in so many lives. Thank you for playing a part in what God is doing to reach foster children, former foster youth and families in Kern County and around the world.
I suppose the most exciting news I can share is that Covenant has a new home! The Headquarters of Hope (HQ of Hope) is under remodel and reconstruction as I write. We are more than thrilled about the new space which will include room for all Covenant staff and programs and a new initiative … a coffee house!
As we follow God through this new endeavor we need your help. We need financial gifts, labor, expertise and prayer. The HQ of Hope is not owned by any man or person. The HQ of Hope is a community center of hope in a tired and hopeless neighborhood that is in need of God’s grace and restoration. Please help us as we not only continue to fulfill mission but also invest into Oildale.
We have had a great response from local contractors and companies as we work to complete this massive undertaking. Through the generosity and giving of these individuals and companies the work is being completed. Many thanks to Brad Thompson of Pyramid Construction, Steve Heriford of Liberty Electric, Sam Wilson of Inland Architecture, Alex and Monique Rogers of ARRC Technology, Rosie Abercrombie of Kern Carpets, Scott Pohlenz of Valley Floor Covering, and Rick Martin of Pacific Irrigation.
Friend, we need your help. The HQ of Hope is more than a building project. It is a place where foster youth and foster children will find hope, employment and mentoring … it is truly a Headquarters of Hope. Please consider becoming a financial partner with Covenant to help the HQ of Hope remodel and the build out of the coffee house. We need your partnership.
For King and Kingdom,
