At First Covenant, we believe that God has called us to share the love of Christ through compassionate service and mission. We provide a variety of ways that people can give and serve locally and globally by donating items, giving time and gifts and learning more about what it means to be united by faith. For more information about Local + Global Outreach please contact Mike Verdoorn mikeverdoorn@gmail.com.

Some of the many ways we live out compassionate service at First Covenant: tutoring, transportation ministry, Union Gospel Mission grocery bags, donating food and serving meals at the local Salvation Army, donations and volunteering at the Alley Shoppe, supporting global missionaries, donating money to Covenant World Relief, leading mission trips and praying for our world.
