Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus... - Philippians 2:4-5
Our Church Benevolences
Our mission budget or benevolences are roughly 10% of our overall budget each year. These funds are given to organizations near and far to support work that is in keeping with the mission and vision of All Souls. Our Diaconate is responsible for leading the church in its benevolences and are guided by its own carefully developed principles of Christian mission. They seek to support missions that address one of more of the following:
Make new Christians by drawing people to Christ and into his service.
Do the things we believe Christ wants us to do, such as provide for the homeless, the marginalized, and others in need.
Allow us to actively serve with our own hands. For example, at Habitat for Humanity, in our work as local meal providers, our service on Boards and in governmental, educational, business, financial, criminal justice, social service positions, etc.
