Local Missions

Dothan Rescue Mission

We so look forward to returning to preparing and serving the evening meal one week per month at the local homeless shelter.  Let us know if you would like to help with meal prep or meal serving!  Contact Carla Riley at cjriley64@gmail.com to sign up or for more information.

Embrace Alabama Kids

Embrace Alabama Kids, a Methodist Ministry, is a non-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to serving vulnerable children and families in crisis. One of the ways we support EAK is by hosting their parent training meeting on the fourth Thursday each month. We prepare dinner for foster families and, after dinner, we do crafts, play games and do short bible lessons with the kids while the parents attend a training session. If you enjoy cooking or working with little people, we invite you to join us!

Faine Elementary

Did you know that 90% of the children at Faine Elementary qualify for free or reduced lunch? That is why we are so passionate about our food bag ministry at Faine.  In partnership with the Wiregrass Area Food Bank, we are able to provide supplemental food bags to Faine families on the third Thursday of each month. You are invited to come with us! Covenant is also looking to increase our presence at Faine Elementary this year by doing some fun and supportive things for the faculty and staff and by getting more involved in the classrooms. Contact our Missions Coordinator to talk about how you can help!

The Harbor

The Harbor in downtown Dothan serves as a refuge for struggling people.  It is a place where those in need can find food, clothing, and even a hot shower but most importantly it is a place to find the transforming love of Jesus Christ.  It is a place where you can answer God’s call to love your neighbor.  We are happy to connect you or your small group with volunteering at The Harbor or join us on Saturday Morning Community Day when our church provides breakfast and volunteers for outreach.

His Helping Hands

You probably do not realize how many people from our community that come to Covenant in need of assistance. We do our best to assist our neighbors in need. Your contributions to CovMissions allows us to offer a helping hand in times of need.

Love in Action

This downtown ministry has helped to feed thousands during the Pandemic.  We feel blessed to be a part of this outreach.  Many come to LIA for provisions or to have their clothes washed or to take a hot shower, but food assistance has been the greatest need in 2020.  CovMissions has supplies thousands of to-go containers, hundreds of pounds of food, and given a large financial contribution that enabled LIA to purchase a walk-in cooler/freezer.  The ability to keep chilled and frozen foods has tremendously expanded their impact.  LIA has seen many come to Christ during these difficult times.  Let’s talk about how you can put your love in action!

Meals on Wheels

At the core of Meals on Wheels is a nutritious meal, companionship and a watchful eye on the health and safety f local seniors and people with disabilities.  Helping is as easy as arriving at Wesley Manor at 10:45 am to pick up the meals and route information.  Most routes take about an hour to complete.  Contact us to be added to the delivery schedule.

Samaritan’s Clinic

Medical professionals looking to volunteer their services are always needed at Samaritan’s Clinic.  The clinic serves homeless, people on work release, and women referred from The House of Ruth every Thursday night from 4-7 pm.  Services include medical, dental and ophthalmology.  Medications are provided at no cost to patients thanks in part to CovMissions giving.
