James 2:14-17 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
The Benevolence ministry at Oak Hill is more than giving people a hand out. Oak Hill benevolence is an effort to share Jesus Christ by giving those in need a hand up!
If you are not a member of Oak Hill, we do have food available for those in need.
Any other needs are addressed on a case by case basis. The need would be approved by the Benevolence Committee.
The needs of members of Oak Hill are addressed by the committee. In addition, we do encourage spiritual guidance in how to best steward the finances God has given. We believe some guidance in financial planning will help make a difference in the way people look at their finances and assist them in moving in a positive direction.
If you do not qualify for Oak Hill’s Benevolence Program, here are some other places you can go that might help:
