A key part of the ministry of New Covenant Church is to serve in the local community and also to use our facility for outreach and community events. Please see the following pages for more information and check our calendar for up coming events. You too can take the opportunity to serve with us and make a difference.
Feeding the Poor
Using our facility at 300 Siedentop we are able to open our kitchen and provide meals for those who require assistance. This is a simple yet effective way to meet those in our own community who are in need, it is also a great way for our church members to be involved in a very real ministry. Do you want to serve with us? We need help with preparing meals and with clean up, or you can be with us simply to meet with those who come. Please contact us directly for more information or check our events page. We are currently working with Monroe Elemenatry School providing meals for some of the families that have children that attend the school.
Loaves & Fishes is a local ministry www.loavesfishes.org that provides a meal and groceries to people who need help every Wednesday night. It meets at a St. Charles church building on the corner of Benton and Clark. We serve on the fourth Wednesday of the month, preparing and serving a home cooked meal as well as fellowship with all who come. After the meal, a chapel service begins. The Holy Spirit moves greatly as the people are touched with music ministry and God’s love.
While the worship team ministers, we put out groceries supplied by local grocery stores and our Bridgeton home group. Upon the completion of the chapel service, the people come to pick out what grocery items they need. The men help to carry the boxes to the cars and minister the love and grace of God to all.
St Louis HELP. Health Equipment Loan Program (www.stlhelp.org) is a local outreach that provides individuals with mobility problems and disabilities access to FREE home medical equipment. St. Louis HELP accepts donations of nearly every type of home medical equipment in good working condition. We revitalize and clean the equipment and have it ready to distribute an NO COST when requested by people with disabilities, their family members, caregivers, or friends.
Recycling and reuse of home medical equipment and passing it on, means you are helping people in need by providing equipment to those who do not have the resources to acquire it themselves.
The second Saturday of the month, New Covenant members serve by cleaning equipment, building shelves and repairing wheelchairs and scooters. Once or twice a year, St. Louis HELP sponsors an equipment drive where U’Haul trucks are parked at several locations throughout the metro area for people to drop off donated items. The warehouse is located at 9709 Dielman Rock Island Drive in Olivette and is open every Wednesday and Saturday for pick up and drop off of equipment.
