Community Engagement

This Little Light

Christ Covenant Church loves our neighbors in Villa Park. Through our outreach arm, This Little Light, we work with our neighbors and community partners in a variety of ways. This Little Light supports the community by running a food pantry and a family-needs clothing closet. We also love our neighbors by hosting and participating in community resource fairs. These fairs assist families and individuals by directing them to free and discounted resources.

Abundant Harvest Food Pantry and Family Closet

Our food pantry provides food, toiletries, personal care items, clothing, and diapers. We also offer financial assistance on a case by case basis through the church’s benevolence fund. Our pantry is a one-stop shop for our community. Providing morning and evening hours with a pantry that offers both food, clothing and personal care items, gives more opportunities to assist those in need who are working and balancing life.

Pantry Hours

1st and 3rd Wednesday and Thursday of every month.

Wednesday 4-6 P.M.
Thursday 9-11 A.M.

Please bring a photo ID for food assistance. Sign in is required, and individuals are welcome to receive food assistance twice per month.

Villa Park Area Early Childhood Collaborative

We work with the Villa Park Area Early Childhood Collaborative to plan fun, resourceful events. These events provide valuable resources that improve our community’s health and well-being. The purpose of the events are:

  • Assist our neighbors with food insecurities.
  • Assist our neighbors by providing personal care items and clothing.
  • Work with our community partners to give our neighbors fun and resource-filled events that improve their overall health and well-being.

Gingerbread Jubilee

We host an annual Gingerbread Jubilee, where we have a party with our church, This Little Light families, and Angel Tree families. Every year, we provide a fun Christmas-themed event with gingerbread houses, lunch, BINGO, and more. At the end of the party, we pass out the gifts collected by the congregation to the children participating in Angel Tree

Trunk or Treat

We partner with local Christian organizations to provide a yearly Trunk or Treat hosted at our church. This free event brings churches and neighbors together in a safe space to provide fall fun for the entire community!
