Current Projects

Respond to Current Disasters

Love Mercy Do Justice works primarily through regional conferences and local Covenant churches and their partners on the ground to provide a timely response when a domestic disaster strikes. Give today, where needed most.


Hurricane Maria Response

Hurricane Maria has caused catastrophic damage across the northeastern Caribbean. Puerto Rico has suffered terribly—it was still recovering from Hurricane Irma two weeks prior and approximately 80,000 residents remained without power as Maria approached. Puerto Rican relief will be a long-term effort.

As people of faith and action, we have an opportunity to support our sisters and brothers in what is quickly becoming a major humanitarian crisis. We are committed to standing alongside Covenant churches and their partners on the ground in this time of need.


Hurricane Harvey Response

Hurricane Harvey has caused unprecedented and catastrophic flooding in southeastern and south central Texas. Its deadly winds and devastating floods have caused damage of historic proportions.

The Love Mercy Do Justice mission priority, in concert with the Midsouth Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church and Covenant World Relief are partnering to address the needs along the Gulf Coast. Together, we can be a part of alleviating the pain and suffering of those affected through provision of food and temporary shelter, debris clean up, home repair, and other “felt needs”. Your generous giving will enable us to continue to respond as long-term recovery efforts are launched. We are committed to standing alongside Covenant churches and their partners on the ground in this time.


Hurricane Irma Response

Hurricane Irma caused heavy flooding and wind damage across the state of Florida, resulting in extensive property damage and displacement for many families. The Love Mercy Do Justice mission priority and Covenant World Relief are partnering to meet the needs of those affected. We are committed to standing alongside partners on the ground to respond to those in need in the aftermath of this extremely powerful hurricane.
