Care Ministry Guidelines
The primary purpose of the Care Ministry is to assist with the basic needs of food and shelter.
Requests for Care above $250 or more will be reviewed at a pastors meeting, the time to respond may take up to 10 days.
We believe it’s unbiblical to aid someone in an effort to relieve the consequences of sinful decisions. Luke 15: 16-17 says:
“The young man became so hungry that even the pods he was feeding the pigs looked good to him. But no one gave him anything. When he finally came to his senses, he said to himself, ‘At home even the hired servants have food enough to spare, and here I am dying of hunger.”
Care is always given to assist the recipient in working through the issue they are facing. When receiving benevolence the recipient will put forth effort to resolve the situation along with the aid of the Church Body. All Care Ministry checks will be made payable to the debtor only, never to the recipient of the financial aid (i.e. National Grid, landlord etc.)
The Care Ministry exists to further the Kingdom of God. We will assist those in need as the Lord leads and will take the necessary time to discern the proper Biblical response.
Galatians 2:10 tells us “Their only suggestion was that we keep on helping the poor, which I have always been eager to do.”
1 Timothy 5 tells us to discern who is need.
Every case is confidential. Violating confidentiality may result in disqualification of any request currently submitted or in the future.
The application is a secure form and will be received by our Care Ministry leader. You will be contacted shortly after the form is received.
