Technology and Equipment Grants
Note: At the time this post was written, SCE Technology & Equipment grants were still available. As of July 1, 2012 these grants are no longer available. Any questions can be directed to Holly Koons at email@example.com.
The Christian Reformed Church wants to assist your smaller church in utilizing technology effectively and efficiently so that you can focus your energy on growing your church instead of figuring out how to operate equipment. To do this the Sustaining Congregational Excellence (SCE) program established two grants, the first provides up to $1,000 US for equipment in your church. The second provides up to $500 US for training on equipment in your church. As noted in the application, these resources "can include a computer, copier, telephone, answering machine, hearing assistance equipment, fax machine, sound system, power point projector, or other equipment that will assist the congregation in its ministry. Non-fundable items include building repairs, furniture, signs, and appliances."
These grants are available for smaller congregations (less than 150 active professing members) in the Christian Reformed Church in North America.
