Outreach

 
The Outreach Team provides leadership for the congregation in demonstrating our commitment to God’s call to love one another and to Jesus’ example of ministry by sharing our gifts and resources with one another and those outside of the Covenant family, through local, national, and international mission endeavors. Whether serving meals to the hungry, building for the homeless, or reading to children, we seek to be God’s loving hands at work in the world.
