All PC(USA) Churches in the state of Indiana are invited and encouraged to establish and replenish Smock Deacon Funds. Initial financial support for each congregation is a grant of up to $5,000.00.
The purpose is to help offset the needs of members of your congregations going through difficult circumstances as a result of the COVID-19 stressors put upon their daily lives and families. Pastor, Session, and Board of Deacons (if you have one) work together to determine the best way to help the individuals and families in their Church.
This online form is for initial grants only. Any replenishment grant requests should be made directly to Rev. Bill Haworth by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by regular post:
