Blessings Through the Storm
BURLESON, TEX. – We can always find God’s blessings, even in tough times. We’re thankful for our members’ continued support of their churches, schools and conferences. Usage of the Adventist Church’s online giving platform, AdventistGiving, has increased dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic. If your church would like an online or app option, contact your conference treasurer or AdventistGiving.org.
In order to assist churches and conferences during these times, the North American Division (NAD) and the Southwestern Union provided reserve funds to alleviate the financial impact that conferences had as a result of COVID-19. The NAD appropriated $448,890 and the Southwestern Union added $224,445. These combined funds of $673,335 were sent to our five conferences in July.
The Southwestern Union Revolving Fund also continues to benefit our conferences and churches by providing loans to purchase or build churches at a low interest rate. There are over 200 loans with over $72 million loaned out. The Revolving Fund also provides a place for churches and schools to deposit funds and receive a good interest rate.
