The application is to be submitted by any local church within the Appalachian District of the WNCC wishing to receive Congregational Vitality funds during the current year.

Congregational Vitality funds are intended to help churches engage in and/or participate in processes which equip, resource and empower our congregations as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ to claim their role as members of the “priesthood of all believers” found in 1 Peter 2:9. Please read the Scriptures (by clicking on them) from Ephesians 4:11-132 Peter 1:5-7 and Matthew 28:19-20 and prayerfully consider how these Scriptures connect to the ministry for which you are requesting grant funding support. 

Please note that all funds for these grants come from Appalachian District Apportionments. Paying your apportionments helps support new ministry all across our District. IMPORTANT: While filling out the grant ONLY fill in the amount that you are REQUESTING FROM THE DISTRICT. CONFERENCE grant funds are NO LONGER available.

If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact Katie Hutton at KHutton@wnccumc.org or by calling 1-336-844-4090.
