Prayer & Care

The following ministries and programs are ways in which we care for one another and our community.

If you would benefit from any of the following, and/or if you would like to offer your time, services, or monetary support, please contact the church office! Also, if you simply need to speak with a pastor, contact us and we would be happy to arrange for that.



  • The SCC Prayer Chain is an email list that allows church members and affiliates to share prayer requests, and to receive requests and pray for one another. If you would like to share a prayer request to the prayer chain, or be added to the chain to receive requests, please contact the church office.
  • The SCC “Stretcher Bearers” Prayer Team are a small group of folks who are available to pray for you after worship every Sunday (when we are meeting in-person). Look for the people with name tags at the front of the sanctuary.

Care Ministry

Care Ministry is our network of SCC members, attendees, and friends who “carry one another’s burdens” in times of crisis or ongoing need through various means, including:
– delivering meals
– rides to medical appointments
– hospital visits
– moving assistance
– at-home communion & prayer
-grief care
-help with tasks necessary for staying in one’s home

If you are in need of extra support, and/or if you would like to volunteer your time in support of our care ministry, please contact the church office!

Benevolence Fund

Our benevolence fund is sustained by gifts from the SCC community and is utilized to meet urgent needs both within our congregation and out in our broader community. Funds go toward items such as rent, utility bills, clothing, baby supplies, and medical bills. We are grateful for the opportunity to steward this fund to come alongside one another in times of crisis.

If you have a need and would benefit from assistance from the benevolence fund, please contact the church office.

If you would like to contribute to the benevolence fund, you may mail a check to SCC (write “benevolence” in the memo line) or give online (select “Benevolence” as the fund option).

AVA (Advocacy for Victims of Abuse)

The Evangelical Covenant Church addresses sexual assault and its related concern, domestic violence, through the Advocacy for Victims of Abuse (AVA) initiative. As a church we acknowledge the reality of brokenness and sin in the world as well as the power of the community to heal brokenness through Jesus Christ. AVA informs, educates, and raises awareness in our congregations and communities.

If you would like to speak with someone about resources for people in abusive situations, you may contact the church office to speak confidentially with any of the pastors.

Love shouldn’t hurt. Find more local resources for domestic violence situations here. If you are in immediate danger, call 911; you can also call the Washington Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-562-6025.
