Social Engagement

We are making Him known by seeking God’s justice for those who are underserved and overlooked in our local communities and around the world. As a Church family we want to discern what it looks like to truly be a voice for the voiceless and to offer compassion and kindness to the afflicted.  This already includes ministry to the captive, orphan, and widow, but we are praying that God will open up doors for us to live out His heart of justice in other tangible ways.

Juvenile Detention Center

The Kent County Juvenile Detention Center is a secure residential facility designed to provide pre and post disposition, short-term care, and custody for juveniles who cannot be placed in a less restrictive setting.  Each Monday night a group of KCC mentors enters the detention facility with the intention of encouraging and uplifting these young adults though the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you are interested in serving in this critical need area please fill out the form below so that we can start a conversation.  

Every day, children in our community suffer because their families are in crisis and community resources are often overwhelmed. At our best, Christians have been known to step out in faith, often at great risk, to care for the vulnerable and hurting. We believe that everyone can do something. Through the amazing resource platform of Care Portal families at KCC can make a tangible difference in these families lives and potentially create a door to build a powerful relationship. If you want to learn more about this outreach and how you can get plugged in, please fill out the form below and we will contact you to go deeper. 

Justice Outreach Team

Psalm 82:3-4 proclaims to God, "Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless. Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy."  Isaiah 1:17 announces "learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the cause of the widow. And Proverbs 31:8-9 declares, "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are impoverished. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
At KCC we want to be intentional at living this out in our current culture.   We are currently praying and discerning what this looks like tangibly for our Church body to live out.  If you are interested in joining that conversation please fill out the form below and Pastor Allen will contact you for a conversation.
