WAYS TO ASSIST
1. Lending a Helping Hand Support Team
Our churches as a group do not have a structure available to assist, encourage or address the needs of struggling churches. We will encourage any congregation that needs help reach out to the Lending a Helping Hand Committee. A team will be made available to meet with the churches and talk with them, discuss their needs, and explore options for assistance. If specific needs can be identified, we will attempt to help meet those needs.
2. Financial Assistance
The PB Foundation has earmarked $62,500 to support this plan Each church applying for assistance will have different needs, therefore we are not establishing specific guidelines or qualifications. For example, the funds can be used to:

Applications for financial support will be accepted until September 30, 2019. The Committee will review all applications and decide how the money will be allocated and will award in a timely manner.
