New Church Plant | David Washington
On September 11, 2016 we officially launched our weekly worship services for Kingdom Covenant Church in Chicago. We launched from Curtis School of Excellence located in the Roseland Community on the far South Side of Chicago. It has been a two year process preparing to serve a very under resourced community. We chose to launch on September 11th because we believe our community is in a state of emergency. The message for the service came from Amos 9:11 (nine one one). Where God through the prophet Amos speaks about restoring His people so that they could possess Edom with its Gentiles (those who were outside of God's covenant people). We believe God is restoring the church to be missional and reach those who are far away. This is what our church is all about, allowing God to restore us and in turn use us to restore the world around us. Through the service, prayers,and support of many believers we launched with an attendance of 167 and saw four people come to the altar to give their lives to Jesus Christ. What an awesome start to the work God has called us to!
