Guidelines for Caring for People in Need

Published: February 26, 2014 Updated: October 15, 2014

Benevolence requires a solid theology, clear value choices, and involves multiple levels of care. The mission of benevolence is to care for those in need by sharing the love of Christ while offering real solutions that promote life-change with long-term impact.

If someone seeking benevolence is not an attender, we refer them to the local coalition of ministries that serve our area.  We partner with and provide financial support to these local non-profit ministries as they seek to be agents of change and transformation.

If someone seeking benevolence is an attender, we refer them to Care Team.  Care Team is a group of volunteers who seek to listen, pray with and encourage individuals once a week.  Our Benevolence Policy & Guidelines document will help you grasp an understanding of the help that is provided to these individuals.

Note: For more information on the philosophy behind our benevolence practices, you may also be interested in reading, "When Helping Hurts" by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert.
