I Need Help …

I need to request financial assistance.

If you are experiencing a financial need, do not worry (Matthew 6:2534). God never meant for you to

walk alone. Please contact the church office at (423) 2671206 to schedule an appointment with a

Deacon.

I need to speak to a budget coach about my family finances.

Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious

than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her (Proverbs 8:1011). As we seek to hear and

apply God’s word to our finances, we believe God’s peace will follow, even in the darkest circumstances.

Members of First Presbyterian Church may contact the Diaconate’s budget coach coordinator at

mercy@1stpresbyterian.com to request an appointment with a coach.

I need to find a helping hand (repairs, rides, computers, attorney, etc.).

Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them (Romans 12:6a). In this way,

the Deacons have organized into several volunteer pools, depending on a variety of needs. These

include advice or help with a bike or car repair, computer question, handyman repair, housing need, job

lead, question for an attorney, ride to the doctor, moving and packing, yardwork. Members of First

Presbyterian Church may contact the Diaconate’s volunteer pool coordinator at

mercy@1stpresbyterian.com and tell us about your need.

I need to get help in a crisis (homelessness, addictions, payday schemes, etc.).

If you are suffering with a severe need, God never meant for you to walk alone. The Deacons can help

you find a loving church family and local Christcentered resources. Take heart: The lame beggar was

completely healed when Peter told him, “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” And

all the people … were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him” (Acts 3:6). Call

the church office at (423) 2671206 to schedule an appointment with the DeacononCall.
