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.
Fed With Grace is a food pantry that operates in partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The pantry is open 10 am to 12 pm every Saturday and serves neighbors of Grace Covenant Church from Kedzie to Pulaski and Irving Park to Lawrence. Typically, neighbors can shop for food once per month. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, neighbors are welcome once per week. While the Edgebrook church building is closed, you can bring a donation on Saturdays or Sundays and leave it in the bin marked “Food Pantry” in the courtyard.
