Update from the Intown Deacons

Spring 2020


We'd like to offer a reminder about the existence of the Deacons Fund, which serves to assist members and regular visitors through financial crises caused by job loss or reduction, unplanned medical costs or other emergency situations. The fund has aided numerous members through times of need, and we are already aware of members in our church family who are facing financial difficulty or could be soon.


If you find yourself in such a state, we do hope you will connect with us through Dave Sawchuk, Intown’s executive director of operations, or any member of the diaconate. Or, you can go through any other member of the staff or session as well. It is a confidential process – applicants meet (most likely by phone in this instance) with a member of the diaconate’s benevolence team who can then authorize the distribution of financial assistance. If you know of someone who might be facing financial hardship, please be encouraged to make him or her aware of the fund and offer your encouragement to make use of it.


And, along that same line, for those among us blessed to have the resources and circumstances to withstand this storm, please consider replenishing the deacons fund and share with church family members in need. It recalls, again, a favorite recitation of the early church, from Acts 2: “And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.”


You can make a gift to the Deacons Fund here.


My thanks for considering ways that you might be able to participate in loving our church family. Let's pray for God's provision in quelling the virus, protecting health workers, aiding those impacted and prodding all to find our role in serving.
