Article XXII: Benevolence Fund Distribution Policy

It is the vision of Grace Church that all funds given freely and without obligation by the membership of the Church can be considered for use to meet the needs of those within our Church, within our community, or associated with our missions ministries according to the principle stated in Galatians 6:10.

The Deacons oversee the Benevolence Fund and will be primarily responsible to receive the requests and disburse funds for specific assistance consistent with wise biblical stewardship.

It is understood that the Deacons may occasionally take the initiative to disburse funds to address some needs when no formal request has been submitted (Galatians 6:10; 1 John 3:16-18).
