Read the Statements on Charlottesville Violence by The Massachusetts & National Councils of Churches



You shall not oppress a resident alien; you know the heart of an alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt. -Exodus 23:9 NRSV

The National Council of Churches expresses deep regret over President Trump’s plan to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Read the full statement here.

 

Ever wonder what the Council of Churches does?
Well, during just May and June of this year the Council Ministries:

  • provided  863 of our youngest with free diapers, wipes and formula at A Baby Center.  
  • gave out 1689 bags of groceries to 1154 of our most vulnerable at Hands of Hope Food Pantry and Outreach Center.
  • served 2645 hot nutritious dinners to our hungry at Faith Family Kitchen. 
  • visited 1258 of our sick at Cape Cod Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital 

Meanwhile, Covenant to Care continued caring for foster children.  Homeless Ministries provided emergency shelter, supplies and resources.  Bridge to Hope mentored women while in prison and upon their release.  Youth StreetReach connected area youth with our homeless neighbors, educating and breaking down barriers of age and class. 
 
Two months of normal work at the Council...all made possible by the support of our churches and community.  All in an effort to serve our churches, our community and our God.  

Please help us help more of your neighbors in need. Donate here.

Please donate to help us help more neighbors in need

For over 50 years, the Cape Cod Council of Churches has served low-income individuals and families throughout Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Our mission "To serve God by Serving Others" is central to the various programs and ministries that help touch the lives of thousands of Cape residents every year. In 2015 we assisted over 6500 Cape Codders. As a non-profit organization, the Council works with community organizations, churches and volunteers to serve residents of the Cape and Islands without regard for religious affiliation, or the lack thereof. From programs like Hands of Hope Outreach Center to A Baby Center, the Council actively helps those in need on Cape Cod.

Through our ministries, the Council has demonstrated its ability to identify unmet needs in our region, create a response to meet those needs, and partner with community resources to develop effective programs that reach out to our sisters and brothers. The Council celebrates relationships with congregations that provide volunteers to staff its ministries, clergy who serve on the Board of Directors, and faithful financial support to ensure the continuation of its ministries. We are also blessed with the support of local businesses, individuals, grants, and partnerships with organizations.We are an agency of the Cape & Islands United Way.
