Benevolence Team 

The Benevolence Team recognizes that some needs are spiritual.  We do not always have silver and gold but we always have the Gospel. 

To receive assistance come into the office during office hours and fill out a Benevolence Form.

Guidelines

The Benevolence Team met on September 23, 2020, drafted the following guidelines to determine how funds are to be dispersed, and revised the existing Benevolence Assistance Form. 

  • Anyone requesting assistance needs to fill out the Assistance Form

  • Priority: Church member, regular attendee, community member

  • The maximum amount the Team can grant: $250 church member, $150 regular attendee, $50 community member

  • Larger amounts will be considered by the Leadership Team and will be presented by the Connections Chair

  • No cash will be disbursed, checks will be made out to the landlord/utility company/appliance store, etc.

  • Funding frequency: Church member or regular attendee monthly, community member quarterly

  • If the office is not open to the public (Covid-19 restrictions),  Forms will be disbursed on Wednesday at the Community Meal by a team member who will also interview the person and offer them information about community services that might be appropriate

  • The Team will convene on Sundays to review requests and will also communicate by email
