Not Just in the Community…

Happy Giving Tuesday! 

First I want to spend some time talking about our mission, because it is seriously amazing.

We know that our small congregation supports hundreds of local organizations (Seriously we did a survey and just 19 people supported 200 community organizations!). New Covenant strives to be a community church and could always use your help! If you like our entirely volunteer run New Covenant Presbyterian Farmer’s Market, free playgroups, small New Covenant Nursery School, Knitting Group, space for AA’s, and affordable community rentals for parties, etc. 

We at New Covenant Small churches are the small businesses of the church world. We never do a prepackaged program, but instead are highly contextual and partner with local organizations: AA, Mendelssohn Choir, YMCA break camps, not to mention 4 church organizations, TrailPraisers inclusive worship, Eagle Hill Neighborhood Association and now featuring Chewish & O My SweetTart pop-up Kitchen restaurants.  Not only that but we partner in mission with Focus Interfaith Food Pantry, Equinox Thanksgiving Dinner, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, One Great Hour of Sharing, SUNY Cornerstone Campus Ministry, and we do an Adopt-a-Family for Christmas every year. We do a lot of great Mission!

We are not only a church that is in the community but is INTO the community, please support New Covenant Presbyterian Church today and support our “Won’t You Be Our Neighbor” Ministries Today!

Thanks for all of your praying and support!

Pastor Katy has enjoyed ministry at New Covenant since 2010, where the church has solidified its community focus. Prior to that she studied both Theology and Christian Formation at Princeton Theological Seminary. She also served as an Assistant Chaplain at Trenton Psychiatric Hospital and as the Christian Educational Coordinator at Bethany Presbyterian at Bloomfield, NJ. She is an writer and is published in Enfleshed, Sermonsuite, Presbyterian's today and Outlook. She writes prayers, liturgy, poems and public theology and is pursuing her doctorate in ministry in Creative Write and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. She enjoys working within and connecting to the community, is known to laugh a lot during service, and tells as many stories as possible. Pastor Katy loves reading Science Fiction and Fantasy, theater, arts and crafts, music, playing with children and sunshine, and continues to try to be as (w)holistically Christian as possible. "Publisher after publisher turned down A Wrinkle in Time," L'Engle wrote, "because it deals overtly with the problem of evil, and it was too difficult for children, and was it a children's or an adult's book, anyhow?" The next year it won the prestigious John Newbery Medal. Tolkien states in the foreword to The Lord of the Rings that he disliked allegories and that the story was not one.[66] Instead he preferred what he termed "applicability", the freedom of the reader to interpret the work in the light of his or her own life and times.
