Covenant Presbyterian Church
Open to wherever God, in Christ, leads us, we seek to live out our faith in community
by offering hope and standing together for justice.
SnowCap’s Winter Care Boxes
Yes, our annual Christmas Cookie and Caroling has been covid-cancelled. But never fear, Congregational Life has teamed with Mission and found something to help mark the season, the SnowCap winter care packages.
Because of pandemic restrictions, SnowCap hasn’t been able to do its usual “Adopt a Family” or a toy store for Christmas. Instead, they’re hoping to help at least 1,000 families with a Winter Care Box. While SnowCap can buy food very cheaply through the Oregon Food Bank, the same is not true for personal hygiene items. We will collect those items, as well as filling a stocking for children, to help us get in the spirit of giving.
Full-size toiletries include: soap, shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste and toothbrush, lotion, deodorant, razors and shaving cream, hand sanitizers, baby wipes and sanitizing wipes, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, toilet paper and paper towels, and hats and gloves.
For children, a pre-filled stocking with activity books, crayons, card games and candy would be great.
If you can’t get to stores, you can send a check to the church, or go to the “Donate” page on this website, and the Christmas Elves from Congregational Life and Mission will do your shopping for you. Make sure you put “SnowCap” in the memo line or note box, so we know where the money is supposed to go.
We have a deadline of Dec. 10 to get our items to SnowCap. If you’re going to donate money, please do so by Dec. 5, so we have time to shop. And thanks for helping make Christmas a little merrier for people in East Multnomah County.

How to find us online:
The doors to our building are closed, but our church is not! Covenant Presbyterian Church is providing online and over-the-phone worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Our Facebook page posts connection information via Zoom each week. We are also live-streaming our Sunday service on Facebook.
This is a service provided instead of our regular in-person worship services, that have been temporarily suspended during the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. We are also offering weekly Bible Study of the Lectionary and weekly prayer gatherings online.
