Good's Helping Hand is an outreach ministry of New Beginnings. It is primarily supported with revenue from SCRIP sales (learn more about SCRIP below). The funds are used to assist persons with unexpected or emergency situations, i.e. car repair, rent, medical, bills, groceries, etc. God's Helping Hand is adminstered by Pastor Carter, and the Ministry Team of the Church. Need assistance yourself? Contact the church office.

God's Helping Hand


SCRIP is fundraising while you shop. You can help those in need by buying what you already buy. You buy retail gift cards through our Church's SCRIP program at face value, and our Church buys the gift cards at 1-13% less than face value (varies by retailer). The difference between face value and what the Church pays = earnings for the Church. For example if you bought a $100 Cabela's gift card, you would buy it for $100 from the Church, and the church would buy it for $89 from the SCRIP program, and the $11 saved would go into God's Helping Hand fund to help those in need. If you need help signing up, contact the church office and let us know.
