Personal Care Giving at the Covenant
The Church of the Covenant has a range of service and volunteer programs providing support to Covenant members, participants, and neighbors who have special needs. These lay ministry activities support and compliment pastors in meeting the needs of the Covenant community. Pastors are closely connected to all personal care giving both in making referrals and in receiving information and he need for pastoral follow up. Through these activities we attempt to follow Christ's example of sympathy, witness, and service.
Covenant's Healing Circle has been in existence for seventeen years, first meeting in a farm house on the campus of Holden Arboretum and now in the Sonia Golden room at Covenant. Today we meet once a month as a group to provide energy work for people from individuals from all walks of life, including referrals from hospice, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, the Seidman Cancer Center, as well as our neighbors who come from as close as apartments in the Circle to those living in the Heights and as far away as the Westside. Our practitioners come from varied faith traditions, including Catholic, Jewish, Unity, Sufi, as well as Presbyterian. There is a growing awareness of this ministry in our Presbyterian community and we now have ministers from Boulevard Presbyterian and Lakewood Presbyterian churches and their congregants joining us.
OUTREACH TO SENIOR ADULTS
This is an emerging ministry. The Reverend Jonyrma Singleton, Associate Pastor, connect groups of seniors together over a monthly lunch at Judson Manor as well as local restaurants. These are Covenant's eighty and ninety year old members, and now they are now inviting their friends to join us!
MIDWEEK MUSIC AND MEDITATION
The Church of the Covenant's sanctuary is open Monday through Friday for prayer and meditation. People who come into the sanctuary range from employees, students, residents and visitors in University Circle, to those who have hospitalized family members. At times pastors or staff are able to talk with them and provide pastoral care. Our Midweek Music and Meditation service is offered as a time of midweek service is also a place that folks seek out to find that time of retreat, small group experience and soothing music to calm the soul.
