Refugee Resettlement Opportunities

A family of 5 arrived on July 13th, 2021 from The Middle East.  They have now been joined by 4 more family members as of March 8, 2022. Bethany Christian Services has brought them to Grand Haven and Covenant Life Church is needed to help receive, care for and support this family as they begin their new lives in our community.  We need you to join us as we reflect and share Christ's care and resources to our new neighbors.

If you are interested in giving monetary donations, that can be done via our website for online donations.  Or making a check out to Covenant Life Church.  In either case, please put 'Refugee Settlement Fund' in the memo line.  These donations will be collected and used for rent assistance for the family.

We define God's mission as all that God is doing in Jesus Christ through the power

of the Holy Spirit to accomplish his redemptive purposes for all of creation.

God calls us individually and collectively to participate in giving witness to his redemptive purposes in Jesus. We primarily participate in giving witness by obedience to three mandates/commissions found in Scripture:

The Great Creation/Cultural Mandate = Image God in creation & culture

(Gen 1:26-31; Gen 12:1-3)

The Great Commandment = Love God & love your neighbor

(Matt 22:34-40; Mk 12:28-34; Lk 10:25-37)

The Great Commission = Make disciples of all nations

(Matthew 28:16-20; Lk 10:1-12)

Local & World Missions

Local Missions

CLC offers financial and personal support for Love In Action. We also operate a bed ministry in house, providing twin and bunk beds at no cost to the community. Our S.W.A.T. ministry (Servants With Appropriate Tools) serves the community by building wheelchair ramps. 

Bed Ministry
Covenant Life Church (in cooperation with local organizations) makes and gives beds to children & adults in our surrounding areas who don’t have a bed to call their own. Since the inception of this program in 2010, we have given away over 700 beds (including mattresses, bedding, and pillows) to those in need.
