Outreach Ministries at HCC

At Harris Covenant Church, reaching out to others in our community and around the world is a priority and it is even a part of our mission statement to love others. Outreach takes various forms and the ways that we reach out are listed below with the specific goals of each ministry team outlined.

Local Outreach

Reaching out to the community of Harris and the surrounding areas is a priority for us. We wish to make a difference in our own community and preach God's Kingdom to them. 

  • Blessing of the Bikes

    Each June, we have a special "Blessing of the Bikes" Sunday to kick off the Summer Biking season and spend time in fellowship together.

  • New Pathways

    The New Pathways Homeless Program provides families with help to develop skills and find housing so they can succeed and thrive. This is accomplished by partnering with area churches. During the day, the families go to work, school, or to the Family Day Center to work on their goals to get into a home of their own. At night the churches and their volunteers provide sleeping accommodations and meals. Four times a year Harris Covenant partners with Trinity Lutheran Church in North Branch to provide families with children a shelter and meals in a friendly and encouraging environment. 

  • Cambridge Pregnancy Resource Center

    Harris Covenant recently took an extra offering to help support the work of the Cambridge Pregnancy Resource Center which offers free pregnancy tests, peer counseling, community referrals, material assistance. For more information call them at 763.698.4319.

Caring Ministry

The goal of the Caring Ministry team is to care for the physical and emotional needs of those in our church family and community. This includes giving flowers and cards to those who are ill, have lost a loved one, or need a little pick-me-up. This also includes sending meals to those in need a little extra help. The caring team also works closely with the prayer team to lift up those in need and care for them spiritually.
