First Covenant Church will be holding a Covenant Kids Congo event Sunday during their worship service.
Missionaries Pete and Cindy Eckstrand will be present during the service to share information and their experience of more than 20 years of mission work in the Congo, Africa region.
The goal of the event is to raise awareness of children living in poverty in Congo and to gain sponsorships of children through World Vision.
"The Evangelical Covenant Church as a whole has made a goal of sponsoring up to 10,000 children through World Vision," said Alan Redenius, pastor of First Covenant Church. "The whole church has sponsored around 6,000 kids in the past year. These children are living in one of the poorest areas of the world."
The event is open to the public and will begin at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at First Covenant Church, 201 Ave. H.
