Local Missions

Family Promise of Grayson County


We provide food, shelter and support services to homeless Grayson County families with children as they regain sustainable independence. We recognize that poverty is a multifaceted problem that requires a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of hundreds of volunteers. We provide food, shelter, and support services for homeless families. We provide advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent them from becoming homeless, and we educate people about poverty and the means to combat it. We work in the community, guided by experts . . . the people who live there and know it best. Our affiliate is nonsectarian. We welcome all guests. Our national organization welcomes volunteers from diverse backgrounds who represent nearly every faith in the United States. As a national organization of 200+ affiliates in 42 states, we have served more than 700,000 people, including tens of thousands of homeless families who found temporary homes at our Affiliates. Most of our clients are children. Our proven approach has helped nearly 80 percent of clients secure housing.

Our Vision: a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future together.

Covenant Presbyterian Church is a host congregation.
The hosting of families rotates weekly among a minimum of 13 Host Congregations in the Network. In turn, each host congregation provides lodging, three meals a day, and caring hospitality 3-4 times a year. There is always a need.

Grand Central Station


Provide for the underserved

A hopeful and nourished community in Body, Soul, and Spirit

We provide food, clothing, tools for learning, advocacy, and life solutions, for our neighbors in need, in an environment of safety.

Grand Central Station’s The Dining Car is in need of a volunteer to help in the kitchen the first Monday of every month. Sue Raasch from our church and another person currently volunteer on that day but could really use a third person to assist. If you are someone who would enjoy meals for those who are hungry and would like to volunteer your help would be much appreciated.

Contact the church missions despartment if you are interested in volunteering.

Covenant Community Grow Garden

Covenant Presbyterian has partnered with North Texas Food Bank to create a community growing space just east of the church building.  Community residents are invited to sign up for a free garden plot, which includes a raised bed, water access, and access to some gardening tools.  For more information, please contact Jean Jones or the front office at the church. Learn more about what’s happening in the Grow Garden here.

Middle School Weekend Food Bags

Many children in our community go hungry over the weekends.  We provide snacks and light meals to take home to middle school students in need each Friday of the school year.  Covenant members shop for grocery items and deliver to Piner and SMS each week.  If you would like to help with this program, please contact Mary Ann Dunavan.

Blessing Box

Located next to the east door of our Sanctuary, the Blessing Box is stocked with water and non-perishable food for those in need.  Canned goods, pasta, beans, and more are available on a regular basis, along with a special food item or two that we focus contributions on each month.  For more information and to learn how you can help, please contact Cathy Clayton.
