Benevolence

 

Jesus said “The greatest among you will be a servant”.  The Big Canoe Chapel, through its Benevolence Committee, is a servant, supporting individuals in need and charitable or faith based organizations in Dawson and Pickens Counties.  As resources allow, support is also considered for similar organizations in surrounding counties.

Assistance to these individuals and organizations is primarily in the form of one-time or scheduled financial support based on a review of needs.  The Benevolence Committee also looks for ways to assist the organization in accomplishing their missions with “hands on” projects which can involve Chapel members.
