NC Synod Launches Relief Fund

Synod Launches Relief Fund

The NC Synod Council has reallocated funds for the purpose of sharing with our congregations, rostered ministers, and agencies and institutions during this time of financial strain with priority given to keeping the rostered minister employed at the congregation at their full salary and benefits. The goal of these funds is to help congregations from a cash flow standpoint. Certainly, this Relief Fund will not solve every issue in every congregation, but the synod would like to be part of a solution to help keep congregation staffs in place and pay necessary bills during this time. This will be done through a grant application process.

Update 11/15/2022: There are still funds available. Contact Michael DeNise with questions; use the buttons on the COVID-19 webpage to complete the application form.
