Generous Application

Generous Application

Work Entry

The Bible teaches us to respect, take care of, and honor God’s money. Doing so creates financial freedom that allows us to be generous to those in need. At The Creek, we strive to be good stewards of what God has given us and want to live out the biblical mandate of care for our neighbors (I Timothy 6:18). Out of this commitment, the Generous Ministry has been formed to care for those in our community who are experiencing trouble securing the necessities of life – things such as food, shelter, and utilities.
