Day 17 Gift Idea: Triennial Scholarships

CHICAGO, IL (December 17, 2018) – Throughout the Advent season, Covenant Newswire is highlighting daily gift selections from the CovenantCares giving guide. Through the free annual catalog, Covenanters can partner with brothers and sisters around the globe to give gift donations that will help serve communities and advance God’s work in many areas.

Today we highlight “I Am,” the Covenant triennial gathering by women for women.

The gathering is a place to go deeper in understanding what it means be an individual made uniquely in the image of God, listen to each other’s voices, and advocate for women to be heard, as well as build a community of women.

I Am will include worship services, workshops, special learning tracks, excursions, and other connection opportunities. Two pre-event offerings will train women to advocate for and work with people who have been abused, while a third will be a mini-Journey to Mosaic.

Although many scheduled activities are available, meaningful serendipitous encounters take place as well. At the last Triennial conference a man who was staying at the conference hotel asked two conference volunteers in the lobby to pray for him in his battle with alcohol. “I’ve been watching your group,” he said. “You have the Spirit.”

Your gift helps provide scholarships for women who might not otherwise be able to attend this life-changing event. This and other missional gift-giving options are available now through CovenantCares Gifts for Mission. Please join us in advancing the mission.

Early registration for the event is now available online.
