financial hardships

New Hope Community Church works closely with organizations that is equipped to help provide financial relief for our community and church members including rental relief, utility assistance, and other programs.  

In addition, our New Hope congregation has graciously donated to a benevolence fund to help those who call New Hope home and are dealing with financial hardships.

New Hope strives to help every family in their financial hardships however practically New Hope is still considered a small church and does not have the funds or manpower to help with every need.  We do rely on different organizations and a committee of volunteers to make sure we are faithful to what we have currently.

Benevolence

New Hope Community Church’s mission is to help people find new hope through Jesus. At times there are people who need financial help for food, utilities, or an urgent bill. New Hope attendees give their own resources to help people in such need.

 

If you are a New Hope attendee and would like to receive benevolence assistance:

  • Benevolence is intended to be a one-time gift that allows short-term relief after exploring other possibilities 

  • Provide as much details as possible explaining your situation in the benevolence application

  • Sign the benevolence agreement

  • Provide copies of the bills you need assistance with

  • If requested, provide one letter of reference from a regular attender of New Hope

  • Be open to receiving financial education from one of our deacons or financial volunteers

  • Give at least 7 days for our benevolence committee to review

 

Benevolence is donation funded and as such we are sometimes limited on our funds despite our hearts in helping every person. Benevolence allows temporary short-term relief and should not be relied on for ongoing assistance. The benevolence fund is intended as a source of last resort, to be sought only when the family or individual requesting assistance has explored all other possibilities of help from family, friends, savings, investments, or any other resources. It is intended to be a temporary help during a time of crisis.  

We are in a time of great need from everyone.  We ask for every person applying for benevolence to go through the same application process so the approval and distribution of benevolence by our committee is valid and fair for all those who apply. Anyone contacted in lieu of this application process should refer you back to this page and application for consideration.  Any other method outside of this application is unfortunately considered void.
