Because of God’s great love and compassion for us, we are compelled to care for others. As a community that seeks to love and walk through difficult journeys with each other, we endeavor to care for those among us in need.

Care and Crisis

Our Diaconate is available for care and support, ready to respond to anyone in a crisis situation or with short-term benevolence needs. If you need assistance or are aware of someone in the community who needs help, email BJ Hutchins in the Church Office.  In the event of a life-threatening emergency, first go to your nearest emergency room or call 911.

Benevolence Fund

“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”

—Galatians 6:10 (ESV)

 

No one is immune to tragedy. It’s a painful side effect of life in a post-Genesis 3 world. But through the gospel’s imperatives, we are given a vision for bearing one another’s burdens and pushing back against the darkness—together.

As a people who are called into God’s mission, we, too, participate in these acts of burden bearing through Christ Community’s Benevolence Fund. This fund exists that C3 members might contribute anonymously to assist other members and regular attendees of the congregation who are unable to cover basic financial needs due to job loss, life transition, or a financial strain.

By contributing to Christ Community’s benevolence fund, you are helping brothers and sisters face their hardships shoulder-to-shoulder rather than on their own.

The Benevolence Fund exists as a way for members and regular attendees who are doing OK financially to anonymously assist members and regular attendees who are hurting or struggling financially.

The designation recognizes our role as host to various recovery groups and our commitment to providing counseling and support to those in recovery and their families. It is our desire to be a place where the hope of the gospel brings true hope to those in this fight.

Partners in Grief

Partners in Grief is a ministry made up of lay persons who are committed to sharing the burden of grief with C3 members and the community. Grief is not only a natural response to the death of a family member or a loved one, but we are also instructed in scripture to grieve with hope. Grief can also follow a catastrophic event in one’s life. This ministry was born to love well those who are suffering under the weight of grief. For more information, contact Jere Jeter (615-336-9260) or BJ Hutchins (629-401-9705).
