Part of what makes the Remnant Fellowship a beautiful place lies in the generosity of the members themselves. This isn’t just a Church that the members “attend occasionally.” It is a vibrant community of love and selflessness. Because all of us have changed so much for the better, have become physically healthy again, enjoyed restored marriages, improved our finances, and so much more, we want to pass along what has been done for us to the new members as they find this Church. Managing the financial decisions of a Church with 1,800 members (and growing) takes time, financial wisdom, and a charitable mindset. Yes, we have monthly budgeted expenses and bills like any organization, but our financial resources and this Committee’s work go so much further than that.
This is just a small sample of what this Church’s money and time, with recommendations from this Committee, goes towards for its members: Prison Ministry resources and materials for incarcerated men and women who have given their lives to God while behind bars, clothing, groceries, fuel gift cards, travel expenses, construction services, scholarships for ministry materials and services, wedding expenses and services, health-related expenses, moving assistance, job-seeking and training assistance, vehicle loaning and so much more.
Whether these needs are met with actual checks being written or with the goods and services provided, it takes a team of caring, intelligent, hard-working men and women to oversee the distribution of all of it. That list has grown over the years as our membership has grown, and these steering decisions, advisory details, and administrative duties are reflected in three committees comprised of multiple Church members to insure a diversity of backgrounds and skillsets.
