Provides limited, short-term financial assistance to those who are in crisis especially in the case of essential needs like food, electricity, rent and water. We seek to help those in a short-term struggle that needs to be managed immediately and provide references to other communities, charitable and social service organizations who can help with long term struggles or with larger needs than we can assist with. Assistance can be provided to MVBC members as well as individuals in the community.
We strive to listen to each person’s story and pray with them that they would see God provide an answer to their situation. Sometimes it is a financial grant from Mount Vernon. Sometimes it is a referral to another organization who can assist them. Sometimes it is reaching out to our church volunteers who can assist them with specific physical needs. We strive to come alongside the person and point them to God and the resources that He provides them in their time of crisis.
If you have a particular skill or willingness to help someone in need of physical assistance, please contact Annette Miller • Administrative Assistant for Missions and Evangelism.
We would be honored to pray for you or someone you know. Our staff prays for all the prayer requests we receive on a regular basis.
