COMPASSION MINISTRIES
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.

Once a month, we will join Compassion Ministries to pack food for 100+ needy students of Farragut Primary and Intermediate Schools. We will package food that can be inconspicuously placed in student backpacks each Friday during the school year. Compassion is housed at Cornerstone Church of God, 12813 Kingston Pike.
