This is a free program inviting churches to install temperature sensors that automatically monitor temperatures in the building and alert designated church members of low temperatures in the building that could lead to freezing pipes and then flooding.
Half of the claims reported to Church Mutual have to do with frozen pipes and flooding. This is a program to help alleviate some or all of that. The sensor kit is not only free, but upon installation, the church will receive $100 reward! (This is a special offer that has been extended.)The sensor works by cell signal, so church needs to have a good cell signal, but Wi-Fi is not required.
This is a program that considers the shrinking size of our congregations. If the existing church burned to the ground, would the current congregation desire to rebuild it the same as it was, or, replace it with a building that is more functional for them?
Functional Replacement allows for the 2nd option by offering a lesser insurance rate. It may sound confusing, but for some churches concerned about rising costs, it's worth considering. Click here to download the Functional Replacement application.
The New England Conference Trustees want to help you reduce the cost of insurance. Both of these programs are from Fred C. Church.
These programs were put in place in 2020 to help local churches address the financial strains caused by COVID-19. They were only offered for that calendar year.
