Financial & Food Assistance
Benevolence means “an act of kindness; a charitable gift.” If you are struggling financially and need such an act of kindness, please fill out our Assistance Application. We accept applications from members and non-members.
Please be sure to fill out the form completely and include a copy of the bill you would like to be considered for payment. You may fill out and submit the form completely online. Processing may take several days to over a week. You will be notified first once the Benevolence Committee has made its decision.
A few things to consider before applying for assistance:
- We are only able to assist people living in Franklin and Woodford counties.
- We are not able to help with hotel or motel stays.
- We do check in with ROSM as part of our application process.

You are urged not to wait until the last minute to turn in your form so that there is adequate time to process your request. We make a special effort to keep things confidential, so the church office is not notified of the status of your application.
Manna House is open to anyone in our community who faces a food emergency.
We offer clients the opportunity to “shop” once a month in the food pantry located in the Small Church Building, across the street from the Main Church Building.
Manna House is open the 2nd & 4th Saturdays each month from 9:00am to 10:30am.
If you would like to donate to the Benevolence Fund, you may do so by writing “Benevolence” on the memo line of your check or specifying “Benevolence” on your cash envelope. If you would like to donate in another way, such as goods or service, please contact the church office.
If you would like to donate to the Manna House, you may drop off donations at the main church building. We have a donation bin located underneath the coat rack to the left of the sanctuary.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me’ … ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
Matthew 25:35-36, 40
“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”
