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. Families of Promise Care Team volunteers can personally connect with the needs of vulnerable children and families in our community through a technology platform called CarePortal. These connections help meet tangible needs and can open the door to relationships that provide hope and transformation. To learn more about being a part of the Families of Promise Care Team, please fill out the form below and we will contact you to explore this opportunity. 

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 we will contact you for a conversation.
