Our church has been blessed with a large bequest of money from Andrew W. Comstock. Mr. Comstock gave the money in memory of his mother, who was a member of the church. Mr. Comstock (1890-1977) envisioned for others the kind of help his family was given in the 1890s when his father died at the age of 34 and left his mother with four small children, all under six years of age. Those were tough times for the Comstocks and Mrs. Comstock’s church was a mainstay in the family’s life. One way that our church strives to carry on that tradition of service is by offering grants.
Following is information on applying for a grant.
