Meals on Wheels We can facilitate meals when a new baby, illness, surgery, or similar need necessitates at-home meal delivery.
Food Pantry (Affiliated with the community non-profit ACCESS West Michigan, our pantry is open Monday and Tuesday to those inside and outside our church family.
Homebound Connection for a visit from those unable to get out.
Senior Pen-Pals pairs elementary aged kids with senior adults in the congregation
Step Up identifies specific tangible needs that can be met by anyone in the church family.
Helping Hands connects church volunteers with those who need assistance with household maintenance, simple automotive repairs, lawn care, and the like.
1-2-1 (One to One) In a number of personal ways we come alongside individuals to provide encouragement to those in the midst of physical or emotional pain, work to connect individuals with supportive groups within the church, and seek to be an instrument of love and hope to the body of believers at firstcovGR.

You can share your needs through Care Ministry envelopes available at firstcovGR mailboxes in our Fellowship Hall. Or you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
