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 email@example.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.
The Covenant World Relief "Change for Change" collection
Find a empty soup can, put the label and the lid on it and save loose change over the month. Put the can in a place where it will serve as a daily reminder to share your blessings. Return the can to church on December 1st ( video ). For questions please contact Louise Wilson or Mike Verdoorn.
