Local Outreach

Grace Covenant members are actively involved throughout Greater Williamsburg and the Hampton Roads Region in a number of ways. Not only are we sharing our lives, but our desire is to also share with our neighbors the hope we have in Christ. (1 Peter 3:15) In particular Grace Covenant is committed to reaching out to and serving our community in four distinct areas:

Campus Ministry

Grace Covenant is committed to serving the students, staff, and faculty at the College of William & Mary, as well as those of other area colleges. Through our partnership with RUF, friendship with InterVarsity, and a network of relationships throughout the campus, Grace Covenant members aim to make a positive impact in the lives of those on and around campus.

Mercy Ministries

While Williamsburg is an affluent commuity, we also have many neighbors in need. Through participation with a variety of community organizations designed to meet specific needs, Grace Covenant aims to demonstrate the love of Christ in practical ways.

Internationals

The College of William & Mary, Busch Gardens, and the toursim industry bring to Williamsburg people from all around the world. Many of the best and brightest come here to study and to live for a time. Grace Covenant members actively and unconditonally share their lives - and the gospel - with these friends from other lands.

Arts

Williamsburg is blessed with an active arts community. Grace Covenant not only enjoys the many creative expressions, but desires to encourage and engage the arts community. Led by our Music Director, Robin Wootton, Grace Covenant has established City Arts Cafe to celebrate the arts, to provide venues for artists to perform and display, and to develop genuine relationships through which we hope the beauty of our Creator's grace may be experienced.

For more information about any of these ministries, or how you can get involved, e-mail us at info@gracecovpca.org

Missional Communities

Each of our Home Fellowship Groups are encouraged to find ways to serve the community together. Rather than merely developing small groups, Grace Covenant is cultivating Missional Communities - groups living, studying, and serving together. While some groups choose to find different opportunities to serve each quarter, some of our groups have made ongoing commitment to benefit others in our community.

  • Blood Drives - One of our groups coordinates with the Red Cross to host and staff quaterly blood drives, which are held on our church campus.
  • Assisted Living Center - One of our groups has adopted a local assisted living center, leading worship for the residents, and developing relationships with some of our loneliest neighbors.
  • Homeless Shelter - Several of our groups work together to host and staff a Homeless Shelter at our church, for one week during the Winter months.
  • Opportunities for service are as many as the imagination can conceive. New projects are being developed. For information e-mail us at info@gracecovpca.org
