Benevolence Fund

Benevolence Fund

Vision: To be a Spirit-empowered community of one heart and soul that shares the resources that God gifts us. (Acts 4:32-37)

Purpose: The purpose of the Benevolence Fund is to meet the essential needs of the Symphony Church community. The Benevolence Fund is a financial safety net for families or individuals if savings/investments, assistance from family and/or friends, or government programs are not able to meet their needs. It is intended to be a temporary help during a time of crisis.
