Justice

Jesus is Good News…

…especially for the marginalized, sick, poor, and forgotten. Working toward more justice and mercy in our community and the world has been at the core of New Covenant Fellowship.

Creation & Environment

Our Green Team works with Faith in Place to care for creation. Solar panels on our roof power our electrical use.

Mentoring and Education

Jesus taught fishermen, women, tax collectors, and uneducated crowds. We believe the gospel goes hand-in-hand with education in addressing injustices in the world. CU 1-to-1 Mentoring ~~Spring Initiative~~

A “justice incubator”

We see the NCF building as a space God has given us to share with mercy and justice organizations so they can grow into their potential. Daily Bread Soup Kitchen and the CU Men’s Emergency Shelter have each used our building as a stepping stone—enabling them to envision the need and expand their services. We currently house the Greater Community AIDS Project (GCAP) food pantry.

Emerging Ministries

We don’t always know what our “next thing” will be, but we’re praying and looking to see where God is at work in the community and how we might be able to come alongside and support that work. Our annual Thanksgiving offering enables us to support new ministries and respond to NCF members’ passion for service. Meanwhile, our Family Fund helps us address basic and emergency needs in our wider fellowship network.
