Caring for our Community
It is important to us at Covington Community Church to extend God's grace to our neighbor and to bring the light and life of Christ where we can. Here is a glimpse of some of the community ministries & services we are currently involved in:
The Storehouse -- We work with other Covington-area churches to provide food to local families who need assistance. We collect supplies for The Storehouse every third Sunday.
Homeless Support -- We support local families & individuals who need a meal, and we also help supply health/hygiene items for KentHOPE in Kent (women & children's day shelter) and Union Gospel Mission in Seattle (men's shelter).
Disaster Ministries -- Working with other churches across the country, we work to rebuild homes & lives after disaster strikes.
Grief Share Support Group -- We have a grief support group open to our entire community. Our next unit begins in September.
Missions -- In addition to our local ministry support, we also support Evan & Jackie Happel in their work with Community Northwest as well as Lybrook Ministries, a Brethren mission on the Navajo Nation in New Mexico.
Recovery -- We provide space for four recovery/support groups who meet in our facility. We have a Thursday women's group that meets at 10 am and 5:30 pm as well as a Friday night and Sunday night open group that meets at 7 pm.
Our Community Care team will be looking into other opportunities to connect our congregation to our community. While we can't do everything, we should do what we can -- for God's glory & our neighbor's good.
