Synod launches Relief Fund
The NC Synod Council has re-allocated 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.
