At Covenant, Outreach is about relationships - relationship with Jesus Christ, relationships with each other, and relationships with our community. Your life will be changed as you get involved in ministry reaching out beyond the church walls. You'll find fellowship as the community of believers join together to be the body of Christ pressing on toward common goals. And, your spiritual growth will be strengthened as you experience God's grace and power at work in a fallen world. Just as Jesus came "not to be ministered unto, but to minister .....", we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.....I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
Matthew 25:35-36, 40
