Ways to Serve

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6.2)

Boulevard Mercy Fund

The mercy fund serves as a resource for Boulevard members, attenders, and those connected to the church who find themselves in need. It is administered by the ‘mercy fund team’ and all requests are treated confidentially. If you would like to give to the mercy fund, you may write a check to Boulevard and put “mercy” in the memo or, give electronically to the church (through Zelle to [email protected]), indicating it is for “mercy.”
