LOCAL MISSIONS

At Plymouth Covenant Church, we believe each person is created with a purpose and is meant to thrive in a community.  We partner with local organizations to accomplish more than we could alone.  We live out our faith by walking with others to overcome life’s difficult moments and to celebrate the victories together.  Join us in our journey as we partner with others to build a community of hope and freedom. 

PARTNERS

Interfaith Outreach is a local organization that responds to the needs of people in our community and helps come alongside families by providing meals, school supplies, and other support.

Standing in the Gap with Care Packs

  1. If you are going out to the store you could pick up some of the most needed items and drop them off at PCC between 5:30-7 PM.
  2. Shop online at your favorite store that offers delivery to your home.  Deliver to PCC and get prayer between 5:30-7:00 each night.  Or you could use Amazon and deliver to your home or to Charlene Williams’: 11139 17th PL NE St. Michael, MN 55376.  For example, search for shelf stable milk and make a selection.

Interfaith Outreach, one of PCC’s local mission partners has the ability to get far more for each dollar and has the ability to serve those facing food scarcity.  Every $1 you donate allows them to source $9 of food and goods from their partners. Donate HERE

We open up our church four times per year to house, feed, and care for families enrolled in the Families Moving Forward program—an interfaith social service organization that provides emergency shelter to homeless families. As a host church, Plymouth Covenant Church provides overnight shelter in our building and volunteers from our congregation create private sleeping rooms for each family, serve meals, and share fellowship with four families. 

Our next host week is July 26-Aug.2.     

In response to the COVID-19, FMF is currently hosting their clients in a hotel. We will be buying groceries for the breakfasts and using Rock Elm to cook and package up dinners for the nights that PCC is responsible for. 

CLICK HERE if you would like to donate personal care items to these families in need.

Who Can Serve?

Children, teens, adults, families, and small groups are all welcome to serve. Sign up for any of our hosting weeks and make an impact on these precious families moving forward.

Together for Good is a network of volunteers and professional staff who come alongside parents who have nowhere to turn when facing crisis or life stressors. Host families welcome children into their homes temporarily, allowing parents time and space to heal, regroup and regain stability for their family. PCC has 10 host families currently serving. Other ways of serving are respite care for the host family, relational ministry by connecting with the moms, and practical support such as meals, clothing, transportation.  This ministry replaces “Safe Families”, which PCC partnered with until recently. 

If you have an interest in this ministry contact Keith and Kathy Ernst at ernstkeith@gmail.com. Contact
