At Christ Covenant serving Christ is one of the main emphases to our vision. We demonstrate God’s love through our words and deeds of service as we meet the felt needs around us. Whether you serve at one of our Service Days (see video below), volunteer at Christ Covenant, or work with one of our local partner organizations, there are opportunities for you to share your time and talents that God has given you.
