"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." Colossians 3:12
Christ-followers extend the compassion of Christ. At Grace Covenant Church, we have a vision to see every neighborhood transformed by the love Christ and one of the ways we accomplish that is to reflect the heart of Christ – demonstrating His care and compassion to our neighbors. Compassion Ministries empower Christ-followers to bring help and hope to vulnerable, at-risk and struggling individuals in our congregation and our communities.
GCC Mobilized Ministries: There are many different types of ministries facilitated through GCC.
Volunteer Partnerships: Throughout the year, we mobilize support to assist ministry partners with specific outreaches, such as Love Denver, Habitat for Humanity builds, and Lincoln Crisis Pregnancy Center Walk. These are listed at appropriate times during the year in the church bulletin or the weekly What's Happening at Grace emails.
Ministry Opportunities in our Community: There are many wonderful ministries located in our community who are extending the compassion of Christ.
Christmas Joyland Toy Store
Saturday, Dec 8
Grace Covenant Church
17301 Statesville Road, Cornelius, NC 28031
The Christmas Joyland Toy Store provides assistance to families in our community and church who could use help with purchasing affordable new gifts for their children at Christmas. Rather than simply coming to the church to pick up a donated item, families receive the dignity and joy of selecting and purchasing items priced at a deeply discounted rate (because they have been donated). Profits from the store are reinvested into selected ministries in our community. The Christmas Joyland Toy Store also provides Grace Covenant families, friends and community groups an opportunity to serve together while blessing our shoppers with the love of the Savior whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.
Referral deadline is Nov 19.
Wish list stations will be open at our Cornelius and Statesville campuses the weekend of Nov 11, Nov 18, and Nov 25. When purchasing gifts, please remember to keep price tags on. Gift drop-off deadline is Dec 5.
Every aspect of the Christmas Joyland Toy Store is dependent on Volunteers. There are a variety of ways for adults, students and children to get involved – from distributing Wish Lists, to collecting and pricing toys, to stocking the shelves, to warmly greeting our guest shoppers.
Register to volunteer below no later than Dec 2.
Financial donations can be made, in lieu of donating gifts. Select Donate button below, which will take you to our Giving page. Select Joyland from Giving Type drop-down menu.
