Creekwood UMC Congregational Care Emergency Fund
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. ~ Galatians 6:2
Brother’s Keeper is a fund designated to assist those in our congregation with extraordinary financial needs and to offer emergency support. While Creekwood members are generous when giving to outreach and missions around the world, the Brother’s Keeper Fund is an opportunity for us to support those in our church family. In these tough economic times, our members can find themselves temporarily in need and through the Brother’s Keeper Fund, they can find timely support.
*Those who desire can confidentially contact Pastor John Thornton to discuss a need. The hope is to share a burden in a timely fashion during a difficult time.
