Benevolence Ministry

The Benevolence Ministry exists to offer help to the people of Village Church of Barrington who are in need of financial or material assistance. We strive to do this as the Lord would have us do, consistent with biblical truth and examples found in Scripture (Acts 2:44, Acts 4:32-34, I Thessalonians 5:14). Our work, though principally done in confidence, should stand up to the scrutiny of church leadership (2 Corinthians 8:21). The Deacon’s Fund is intended as an aid of last resort for temporary, short-term reasons (I Timothy 5:8). It is entirely funded by freewill offerings. This ministry also strives to identify other areas of assistance that may be helpful and to refer people to other ministries and resources, as appropriate.
