The Bible teaches us to respect, take care of and honor God’s money. Doing so creates the financial freedom that allows us to be generous to those in need. At FCC, we strive to be good stewards of what God has given us and want to live out the biblical mandate of caring for our neighbors (1 Tim 6:18). Out of this commitment, the Generous Ministry has been formed to care for those in our community who are experiencing trouble securing the necessities of life- things such as food, shelter, and utilities.
FCC is seeking active participants in our Generous Ministry program. All requests will be considered. Please note the Generous Ministry is not equipped to handle emergency requests. It usually takes two weeks to process a request. Our Service Area is 46965, 46901, 46902, 46936, 46979, 46068, 46076, 46049, 46937, 46072. Not all requests can be fulfilled and some may only partially be met. The Care Volunteer will request you to participate in evaluating, planning and creating action steps during the process. You will be requested to complete the action steps assigned to you. Failure to complete the action steps will disqualify you from future participation in the Generous Ministry. These steps may include a class and/or mentoring. Be advised- when we contact you it may be from a blocked number.
If you are in need of assistance, print and complete the Request Form below and return it to FCC either by U.S. Mail (1476 East 400 South, Oakford, IN 46965. Attn: Generous Ministry) or by dropping it off at the church during office hours (Monday – Thursday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. ). Be sure to include any relevant paperwork that will help us to assess needs including; letters of eviction, disconnection notices and notifications of denial of social services. Also include a copy of your driver’s license or state ID. Your request will be kept confidential and someone from the Generous Ministry will contact you as soon as possible to discuss your need. If you do not fully complete this application, it cannot be considered.
