Helping those in need this season
First Sundays are also when we receive a benevolence offering. Our benevolence fund operates apart from our general fund and helps to meet the needs of those in our church and community who may be experiencing hardships. Benevolence resources have been used to help prevent evictions, assist with medical expenses, or simply to help keep heat on in the colder months.
This time of year is when benevolence requests typically increase. As we anticipate those needs for this month and next, please know that anything that we receive for the benevolence fund is greatly needed and appreciated.
