Reverend Christine uses this fund for needs in our congregation and the community that might not otherwise be met with congregational resources—especially for those who are in crisis or have immediate financial needs.
Within our congregation, the fund was critical during the pandemic and is still helping to support folks who come down with COVID. It continues to pay bills for those struggling, cover medical procedures or co-pays, or help when things are tough.
This is the only time of the year that money is requested for this fund, although donations are always welcome. The congregation’s generosity was very high in the first year of the pandemic, but has waned a bit this past year. We appreciate your generosity as we support each other with compassion and care.
