BENEVOLENCE

 
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1.27 (NIV)

The benevolence ministry’s mission is to ensure Bethel members in need do not go hungry in times of crisis, according to biblical directives and fiscal constraints. At this time, we are only able to help ensure you and your family do not go hungry while we pray and petition for God’s long-term provision and work with you to create a budget. The benevolence fund is not designed to pay utility bills, rent, mortgage or car payments.

The benevolence ministry is intended as a source of last resort, our Life Groups serve as the “front lines” when it comes to crisis. The benevolence fund is to be used after all other possibilities of help have been exhausted (i.e., family, friends, loans, savings, yard sales, etc). Due to the necessity to fill out this packet in its entirety and meet with the benevolence fund director, we are not able to respond to financial emergencies.

In addition to financial aid, Bethel provides the following to members.

  • Budget coaching
  • Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University
  • Spiritual counseling
  • Resume review and editing
  • Job search websites
  • Information on community resources
Community Resources

The Help Book – Community Resource Directory: a searchable database of community resources ranging from housing to financial resources and from clothing to medical services.
