The Benevolence Committee is assigned the task of assisting those in our church family and the surrounding area with mission-critical expenses when there is a shortfall in funds. The committee is comprised of church members tasked with accepting and evaluating applications, then praying over and dispersing funds given specifically for this outreach. The funds distributed do not derive from the UDC general fund, but from the outpouring of God's graciousness into the Benevolence account. The committee focuses on critical items such as food, heat and shelter. The objective of this committee is a very short-term gap stop and is not intended for long-term covering.

If you have a need, please fill out this application in its entirety and return it to Upper Deer Creek Church.
The Mercy House is a free clothing ministry of Upper Deer Creek Church. If you or anyone you know has a clothing need, this is the store to visit! Located on UDC's property just east of the church.
**Due to Covid, we are meeting with clients by appointment only for the time being. Please call the church to make an appointment.
