Get Help

From time to time, we all need some extra help.
Whether it's financial guidance, help with overcoming an addiction or simply the need for a listening ear and encouraging word, the people of God can come together to help one another...

Financial Assistance

All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had . . . For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need" Acts 4:3234

The Bible teaches us to respect, take care of, and honor God's money. Doing so creates the financial freedom that allows us to be generous to those around us in need. At The Creek, we strive to be good stewards of what God has given us and want to live out the biblical mandate of caring for our neighbors (1 Tim 6:18). Out of this commitment, the Generous Ministry has been formed to care for those in our community who are experiencing trouble securing the necessities of life- things such as food, shelter, and utilities.

Anyone in need should complete this Request Form. Any supporting documents can be uploaded within this form.  Other options for submitting documents include fax (862-2185), email ( loricarter@thecreek.org), or return it to The Creek either by U.S. mail or by dropping it off during office hours. Your request will be kept confidential and someone from the Generous Ministry will contact you to discuss your need.

Please note the Generous Ministry is not equipped to handle emergency requests. It takes at least two weeks to process a request or referral. If you are in immediate need and it cannot wait two weeks we suggest you contact connect2help.org or call 211 to find other resources in the area.
