The ministries at Kent Covenant happen in large part because of one thing: volunteers. People who use their skills and talents in the community at large and within the community within KCC.

Furniture and Household Items needed for refugees
World Relief resettles several refugee families each month and is in continuous need of apartment furniture and household goods such as pots & pans, baking dishes, bath towels, sheets (especially twin-sized), comforters and floor lamps. Also kitchen items such plates and bowls, cups/mugs, drinking glasses, cutlery, cooking utensils (serving spoons, spatulas, cooking knives) and can openers. Label your donations for World Relief and leave under the balcony stairway. Please let Pastor Susan know if you want a tax-receipt. Susan.Sommerman@kentcov.org or 253-631-0222 ext 308.
Every Wednesday and Friday 4 - 8 volunteers meet at KCC at 8:00 p.m. and ride together to seek out those sleeping in cars and public places in Kent. We offer food, hot chocolate, warm clothes and socks, blankets, prayer and encouragement. Sign up by contacting Pastor Susan or 253-631-0222 ext. 308.
When the temperature dips below freezing for 24 hours or more, we will offer to take homeless families and individuals to the Kent Severe Weather Shelter at Kent Lutheran Church, 336 2nd Ave. S.
Come meet our homeless neighbors, see how they live and provide practical help, hope and encouragment.
This program began November 21 and on the second night, volunteers met a homeless woman who was ready to take the first step to sobriety and getting off the streets. A volunteer arranged to meet her at an AA meeting the next morning. Caring relationships are the key to providing hope for a better future.
