FINANCIAL HELP MINISTRIES of grace
(these services are only available to Grace members)
If you are currently struggling to pay your bills or feed your family, CareNet may be able to help. When you make an appointment to meet with one of our trained advisors, our goal is to consider your needs in the most appropriate way. Sometimes we may address your need directly; other times we may point you to helpful community resources. We may also be able to equip and empower you to better manage your resources going forward. In all cases, we will work with you to address your needs in a holistic way – body, mind, and spirit. To request an appointment, contact the CareNet Intake line at 410.561.8424 ext. 500 and leave a message.
If you are in need of a meal or two, we can help you with our frozen dinners. We provide delicious, healthy, generous-sized meals which are prepared on-site by a team of dedicated volunteers. To request meals, contact CareNet at 410.561.8424 ext. 500 or come to front desk during regular office hours.
Twice a year we offer a financial planning/budgeting training class entitled Financial Peace University, taught by Dave Ramsey. This 10-week class features video teaching and small group discussion, focused on Biblical principles concerning money. To inquire about the next Financial Peace University class, contact Erich Becker.
