On every first Sunday of the month when Holy Communion is celebrated, envelopes are inserted in our worship bulletins for a special offering made to the Benevolence Fund (formerly the Deacons Fund). Our pastor oversee this modest fund, which is judiciously used for anyone having unexpected difficulty paying bills related to medical expenses, housing, travel, or other needs. This assistance is intended for short-term, specific financial hardships not covered by the town or any governmental agency. Decisions about whether to make a Benevolence Fund distribution are made solely by our pastor. Issued checks are never made out to a private individual, but are written directly to a company or organization issuing a bill.
Anyone who would like to donate to the Benevolence Fund may write a check made out to DCC Benevolence Fund and either place it in the offering plate on a first Sunday morning or mail to Deerfield Community Church, P.O. Box 420, Deerfield, NH 03037.
