We desire to help those in our church family and our broader community who have financial needs. We observe that Jesus was compassionate toward those who had needs and we believe he calls us as a church to do the same.
Our Benevolence-Compassion Fund is supported by donations directly from the Southport Pres church family. Those who have legitimates needs are encouraged to reach out to us, let us know your need, and see if you might qualify to receive help from the Benevolence-Compassion Fund.
We have a group of people, we call them the Benevolence Committee, who are responsible to steward these funds and ensure we are using them wisely and to meet true needs.
Since we can’t help everyone, the first requirement for receiving assistance is to live within a certain proximity of Southport Pres—between Edgewood Ave and County Line Road and Arlington Ave and Sherman/Gray Roads.
We also ask that you meet with the Benevolence Committee to discuss your current situation and provide the proper documentation to show your need—as you might expect, not everyone who reaches out for help has a true need. And more importantly, our team would like to pray with you and offer spiritual encouragement.
