While Williamsburg is an affluent community, we also have
many neighbors in need. Through our Deacons, we are able to assist both church
members and others in our area in need of help. Additionally, through partnerships with several community
organizations designed to meet specific needs, Grace Covenant is actively
involved in expressing the compassion of Christ in practical ways.
Among the ministries in which we are involved::
During the coldest months of each year, from November
through March, Community of Faith Mission coordinates with local Williamsburg
churches to provide a shelter for the homeless.
Grace Covenant serves as one of the shelter hosts, offering caring
friends, healthy meals, and a safe warm place for our neighbors in need to
Grace Covenant is a partner of 3e Restoration to help our neighbors living in homelessness to transition from social displacement to holistic sufficiency.
Project Angel Tree
Angel Tree is a ministry of Prison Fellowship, reaching out to children of prison inmates with the love of Christ. Each year Prison Fellowship provides us the names of area children with at least one parent - and sometimes both parents - presently in jail. Grace Covenant members "adopt" a child, and provide Christmas gifts in the name of the incarcerated parent.
Grace Covenant regularly collects non-perishable foods and canned goods to help supply FISH, the local food bank serving Williamsburg, James City Count, and York County.
Habitat for Humanity
Grace Covenant was delighted to renew our participation with Habitat for Humanity in 2017, helping to build a home in the Grove Community of James City County; and is looking forward to the next home build, scheduled to begin in March 2018.
