Everyone goes through hard times and the staff at White Flag is available to you!
People often assume that as Pastors we are always busy and don't have time to pray with people over specific needs. This is not true; as Pastors one of our primary responsibilities is to meet with people, listen, counsel and pray. Please don't hesitate to call and schedule an appointment if you find yourself facing a challenge. It would be our privilege to come along side of you during your difficult time.
WHITE FLAG does not have the resources to provide for requests for financial assistance to the community at large. We reserve requests for financial support to members or regular attendees of the church. That does not mean that we are not interested in helping those that have fallen on hard times outside our church. It is our desire to help you to find the help you need. Our church provides monthly financial support to community programs and we would like to give you some information on these area organizations that are better equipped to give more assistance.
