Q: Am I guaranteed to get the item(s) I posted a need for?
Q: How many posts can I make?
A: As many as you’d like.
Q: Do I have to publicly show my name on my posts?
A: Publicly providing your name is not required, but would be helpful for those who would be contacting you.
Q: Does the church manage my postings?
A: NO – that is completely up to you. You can access and manage your account by clicking here.
Q: Does the church assist in contacting others about the posts?
A: NO – that is completely up to you as well. One of the main goals of this program is for us as members of the Body of Christ to begin to help one another, and in doing so, develop meaningful and lasting relationships.
Q: How should we handle financial requests/needs?
A: Know first off that financial needs are not guaranteed in full or at all. Also, if requesting financial help please be prepared to provide proof of the amount needed and it’s due date. We do not recommend or encourage members to give cash directly to individuals. Instead, we encourage members to go directly to the institution the amount is owed and pay the amount there. If you are paying a financial need for someone, also please get a receipt showing that you took care of it. Best practices would be to obtain or make 2 copies of the receipt if possible – one for you and one for the person you are helping.
Q: What if we notice someone abusing the program?
A: If you notice someone abusing the program (EX: requesting all their bills be paid every month), please confront them politely and ask them to stop. If that doesn’t end the abuse, then please contact the church office.
NOTE: Individuals caught abusing the program will be terminated from the program and no longer be able to receive assistance from others.
Q: What are recommended practices when visiting a person’s home to provide assistance?
A: We highly recommend that members of the same gender do the “in person” meetings. Also, please use caution and common sense when visiting a home. If something feels off or unsafe, leave immediately.
