Mission

Discover Community Church is a place where the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:27) will be encouraged* and equipped to use our spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12:7) in order to actively care for our neighboring community, and to be doers of the word, and not merely hearers. (James 1:22) * Encouraged by witnessing the fruit of local outreach first-hand. Equipped by the ongoing study of the Word to hear His direction.

Notes from the nonprofit

7.2.2020 COVID-19 Update: We are currently meeting in person at limited capacity, continuing online services for those who are high risk or not ready to attend in person. Food Pantry services continue every Sunday using the drive-through model. 4.13.2020 COVID-19 Update: During this time, we are continuing Sunday services for congregants via online formats (Facebook and YouTube), and we have gone to a drive-through food pantry model to keep Food Pantry clients safe. We have also expanded the reach of the pantry to service anyone who needs food. We have also included pantry porch drops, when possible, for those concerned about leaving their homes.

Where we work

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • How is the organization collecting feedback?

    We regularly collect feedback through: suggestion box/email, we ask what things they would like to see that we don't currently have/do..

  • How is the organization using feedback?

    We use feedback to: to identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, to strengthen relationships with the people we serve.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    We share feedback with: the people we serve, our staff, our board.

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    It is difficult to: it is difficult to get the people we serve to respond to requests for feedback, we don’t have the right technology to collect and aggregate feedback efficiently, staff find it hard to prioritize feedback collection and review due to lack of time.

  • What significant change resulted from feedback

    In regard to the pantry portion of what we do: During the COVID-19 issues currently going on, we have been approached by a few current and potential clients about expanding the reach of our pantry during this time, using COVID info boards to offer help, and the need to bring in more toiletry supplies (which we don't typically carry much of). We are currently doing all of these things to reach more people who previously may not have used a pantry or food bank before and to meet needs that are a little different than typical. We also received feedback on how to distribute during this time using a drive-up model so distancing can be practiced and the client does not have to get out of the car. We want our clients to feel safe, so we have instituted this model.
