Serving in the Community

Serving in the Community


CVC believes that as Christians we are called to help others with their basic needs and with critical life issues. Our desire is to actively serve our communities of Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy.

Whosoever Gospel Missions

The Whosoever Gospel Mission is a Christian nonprofit organization whose purpose is to provide shelter, food, clothing, education, counseling, rehabilitation and other assistance to homeless and/or needy men, women and children in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. As the lighted sign on our rooftop proclaims each night, we seek to offer the love of Jesus and the hope of the Gospel in both word and deed to those who are hurting.

How to Serve: Several times a year, CVC provides a dinner and chapel service on a Sunday afternoon at WGM.

Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia

CLCP is an urban legal ministry which seeks to address injustice and poverty in partnership with existing inner city host ministries by bringing volunteer attorneys into neighborhoods where their services are most needed

How to Serve: Since the Pandemic we have not unfortunately partnered with Christian Legal Clinics.

Family Promise of Philadelphia

Family Promise is an organization that offers supportive services to families affected by homelessness. Over our 20-year history we have expanded out supportive services to include career development and education planning, family therapeutic services, financial literacy training, housing support, material support and parenting education. Family Promise offers the following services to its current and former families: emergency shelter, supportive services, youth services and transformational housing.

How to Serve: CVC volunteers serve as a buddy hosts with the Germantown Mennonite Church during one week. We provide meals and care for those families who are homeless.

We are looking for new opportunities to serve in Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy, particularly in the area of racial reconciliation. At the moment, several times year we host discussions on racial reconciliation, poverty, and loving those who are different from us. See more at our Love Your Neighbor Discussion Page.
