Requesting Benevolence during the COVID-19 pandemic...
During this season of social distancing and the stay-at-home mandate from Governor Inslee, finding ways to connect with others for support, encouragement, prayer, and community is especially important.
We also know that this is a time of heightened stress and need for families, couples, and individuals who now find themselves without a paycheck. As always, the purpose of our Benevolence Ministry is to provide limited financial assistance to our members and regular attendees when such assistance is likely to be effective in helping the recipient find a long-term solution to his or her difficulties. The Benevolence team prayerfully considers each application for assistance. After looking at the information provided, asking questions to clarify the need and resources available to the applicant, the Benevolence team determines together if, and how much, assistance is to be given. All information provided on the Benevolence Request Form is handled with great care.
Faithful stewardship of the Benevolence resources is a high priority for the team as well. As such, there is a set limit to the amount of assistance available to each family. While assistance is not guaranteed, all applications submitted to us are reviewed as soon as possible.
The first step in receiving benevolence is to fill out the online Request for Benevolence Consideration form.
Benevolence: an act of kindness; a charitable gift.
