Give Help—living as the church during COVID-19

Mar 27, 2020

As our body faces new challenges and uncertainty, we want you to know that your pastors and deacons are available to minister to you when you need help, as well as connect you to others in need of help. Below we have outlined ways you can step up to help the people of our church who have lost jobs, are sick, or are at a higher risk in this season of COVID-19. 

FOR OUR PEOPLE

SERVE PRACTICAL NEEDS

We expect that during this time our members and broader church body will need more help than ever. We are committed to providing as much care as we can to our church body—but we need your help. 

Here are some ways you can serve:

  • Serve at-risk groups by shopping for essentials.
  • Take families in need a meal, groceries, or other essential items.
  • Do you have a skill or ability that would serve our people? Let us know.

Sign up to meet a practical need


GIVE TO THE BENEVOLENCE FUND

The other way you can serve during this time would be to give to our Benevolence Fund. This fund will be used for people in our church who need financial assistance, like help buying groceries, paying a rent or mortgage payment due to a lost job, or receiving medical care.

In the past, we've only received into our Benevolence Fund during our Christmas Eve services, but we are now opening this up so that you can give directly, alongside our General Fund.
