Caring for Your Group Members - Financial Crisis
From time to time, many people go through a season where they are in a temporary financial pinch. When this happens to someone in your small group, you as their group leader can play a role in helping them over that hump.
Our Church Care Fund is a ministry designed to meet these needs and we encourage you to fill out the form. (Note: this form is behind a password page. All small group leaders have been made aware of that password. However if you have misplaced or forgotten what it is, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to provide it to you.) Your site pastor will respond to you directly within 48 hours during the weekdays. (It may be 72 hours over the weekend.)
Simple guidelines are:
- The Care Fund addresses basic needs of groceries, clothing (i.e. snow boots), rent, medical bills, and car repairs & payments.
- This is available for catastrophic emergency needs, such as fire, and traveling expenses related to out-of-town medical care.
- Anyone within the church or outside of the church who has any of the above needs may benefit from the Care Fund.
- Any payments may take up to a week.
Thank you for being on the front lines of this important way that McLane Church is able to bring a blessing to people during their time of need. If you have any questions about this process or its applicability to a specific situation, feel free to get in touch with Tavia or Roger.
