The Dwell Disaster Relief Fund enables the church to respond to natural or human-caused disasters in a coordinated and generous way. This allows us to demonstrate, tangibly, the love of Christ for those in need.
This generosity is rooted deeply in the soil of biblical priorities for God’s people. Much of the New Testament teaching on financial giving comes in the context of Paul’s efforts to raise money to relieve famine in Jerusalem. Meeting this pressing need was intended to demonstrate Christian unity across ethnic lines (Galatians 2:9,10), to express gratitude for God’s material blessing (2 Corinthians 9:8,9), as a witness to non-Christians who benefit from the generosity (2 Corinthians 9:12,13), and demonstrate the principle of material equality (2 Corinthians 8:13-15).
When a disaster occurs, the elders will open the fund to donors and set an appropriate financial target. We will disperse relief funds to areas where there is an acute need and reliable partners who can steward the financial gift.
