Community Opportunity Scan

COS-Community Opportunity Scan: What is a Community Opportunity Scan? It is a process by which we can learn about our community and better understand where there are needs, an opportunity to look at existing agencies and ministries that may give opportunity for partnering. It will allow us to strategically look at the best approach for outreach and to evaluate what we are currently doing. It will also help us set direction with the Property Visioning Committee about how to use the land with which God has blessed our church. We have submitted a grant application to the Diaconal Ministries to help cover the cost of the COS and hope to begin the process in the fall. For more information you can go this website: 

The Courtice COS Team has established a wiki website at and you are welcome to check out their work and join the Team or volunteer as an interviewer to help determine the needs in Courtice.
