Strict Standards: strftime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /homepages/4/d278612902/htdocs/maincore.php on line 798

Benevolence Committee
1. BENEVOLENCE COMMITTEE


The Benevolence Committee will consist of three members to be elected on a rotating basis, one new member to be elected annually. One member will be a deacon.

The purpose of the Benevolence Committee will be to investigate requests for financial assistance and to render help at its discretion and within the limits authorized by the church.

To achieve its purpose, the Benevolence Committee will:

1. Investigate requests for financial assistance and determine what is needed.

2. Survey and determine available community agencies for assistance.

3. Work with other groups in the church that provide benevolent assistance.

4. Provide assistance within the committee’s budget and guidelines.

5. Review with the church council any requests that exceed the committee’s resources and agree upon any action, such as taking a special offering.


1B. BENEVOLENCE COMMITTEE POLICY


1. When a member of the church reports someone in financial need or when a request for financial help is made of the church, the committee has the authority to act, upon the approval of the committee members who are available.

2. The committee is authorized to spend the budgeted amount each year without a vote of the church. The committee seldom spends more than $100 toward a particular request.

3. The committee is authorized to assist a particular person or family no more than one time during a church year without church approval.

4. Committee members are authorized to pay utility bills, buy groceries, etc. for people in need. In most cases, the policy should be observed that no money is given directly to individuals.

5. When a special offering is taken for an individual or family, any checks written should be made out to the church and designated for benevolence, according to IRS guidelines.
