Edgebrook Covenant Church actively supports a number of local mission initiatives. These include:
A Just Harvest serves a hot and nutritious supper 365 days a year to the needy from their location in the east Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago. Every other month, on the first Saturday of the month, volunteers from Edgebrook Covenant serve the meal and clean up afterwards. We also purchase the food for that evening’s supper. Get involved by donating funds for the meal and / or helping serve a meal. Contact the church office if you are interested in volunteering.
Crafty Angels, a knitting ministry that provides hand knitted gloves, scarves, mittens, afghans, prayer shawls, and handmade blankets for the need locally, nationally and around the world. Get involved by donating yarn, money, or joining our Crafty Angel knitters and crocheters. The Crafty Angels can be found on Facebook.
Cornerstone Community Outreach provides shelter and programs for the homeless on Chicago’s north side. This is a ministry of Jesus People USA Covenant Church. Get involved by donating household items, clothing, and toiletries. Leave your donations in the bin designated for Cornerstone Community Outreach in the Sanctuary entryway.
Feed My Starving Children. Volunteers from all walks of life come together with family, friends, co-workers and strangers to feed starving children. Edgebrook Covenant volunteers to hand-pack rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets and shipped to our incredible partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world. Get involved by contacting the church office if you are interested in volunteering.
The North Park Friendship Center provides food and other basic necessities for the needy of Chicago’s Albany Park community. The Friendship Center is a cooperative effort of several Chicagoland Evangelical Covenant churches. Get involved by taking part in our “One Thing Campaign.” Bring a donation of a single food item each week and put it in the bin marked “Food Pantry” in the Sanctuary entryway.
