Two ways of being community
1. Jubilee Fund. One of the ways we can be community together is by coming alongside those who are short of money. Through our Jubilee Fund, we provide such assistance with no expectation of repayment. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
2. Community Savings Fund. Another way we can be community is by “spotting” money at crunch time. Say you suddenly get a car repair bill that you don’t have time to save up for. The Community Savings Fund can cover your bill and you can restock the fund when you’re able. The Quaker Oats box located at the back of the Meeting room is the designated receptacle for these donations and requests. If we add small amounts regularly, it adds up to a significant “kitty” available for use as needs arise in the church family.
