In the Community
Our local outreach ministries aim to connect people's gifts and passions with service to our neighbors, building caring and nurturing relationships with people struggling with poverty, homelessness or hunger.
How would you like to share your gifts? Here are several of the ministries and partners that we support. Contact Director of Mission & Outreach, Lucy Crain, to learn more.

Join the team to provide a Thanksgiving meal at Moore Place, a community for folks overcoming homelessness.
On fifth Tuesdays (about 4 times a year), volunteers from Covenant serve donated Texas Hash casseroles to the more than 300 homeless men who rely on the shelter. Casseroles, desserts and fresh fruit are needed for each meal, and people (older than 16) are invited to come serve the meal at the shelter.

Join a Charlotte Family Housing Hope Team. This collaborative effort empowers working families to end a cycle of poverty with the help of a support system. Adults can join a HOPE team - a group of four to six people that provide a support system to one family in the form of friendship and advocacy.
