Serve

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

1Peter 4:10

GMS

Do you enjoy meeting new people? Have a great handshake? Perhaps the Greeters, Meeters, Seaters (GMS) ministry would be the place for you. As a GMS you get to welcome our Sunday morning guests and answer any questions they may have about Community Covenant. The Welcome Center is also another place for smiling faces to serve. For more information on helping with this ministry please contact Susan Ruth, Congregational Care Chair.

Children

 

Does a room full of little kids sound scary to you? If so this might not be the place for you! On the other hand if a room full of laughing active children makes you smile then this might be the place to plug in. There are many service opportunities available such as:

  • Sunday School and Kid’s Worship teachers, helpers and substitute teachers
  • Vacation Bible School teachers, helpers, games, worship and snacks

Contact Denise Snyder, Children's Ministry Director.

Adult

Outreach

Our mission is simple. Jesus said,

Jesus replied: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." This is the first and greatest commandment.

This also includes another Childrens Feeding Center and Kindergarten in the neighborhood of San Nicolas. Multiple mission trips will be planned yearly.
