If you are able to give above and beyond your current giving to the church, please write the name of the chosen fund on the memo line of your check or select the appropriate fund through PushPay. For gifts of stock, IRA contributions, or other creative gifts, talk to your tax advisor about your specific situation and, if you’d like to give in this way, contact Patty Deiser, Village Finance Manager, at [email protected].
Grace Fund: Goal $50,000
A single mother who was under-employed due to COVID and needed help buying groceries. A seminary student who needed assistance with rent despite working multiple part-time jobs. A business owner affected by COVID closures who needed help with utilities for his home. The mobile dental clinic we operate in cooperation with Medical Teams International which, each month, serves dozens of under-employed people, including refugees. These are just a few examples of how last year’s gifts of more than $160,000 made a huge difference in the lives of hundreds of people in our local area. Consider giving to the Grace Fund today to meet tangible needs of Village community members and non-Villagers. Many employers match these gifts. More Information
Building Fund: Goal $50,000
Double your gift! We are privileged to have an incredible campus which is strategically located. Thanks to the commitment of our church community, we’ve made significant progress in paying off our building debt. We want to pay off the smaller of two loans for our Worship Center, finished in 2009, which currently has a balance of approximately $1.2 million. Paying down this loan would increase the money in our regular budget which can be spent on ministry.
A generous Village family has offered to match up to $50,000 of gifts!
First Impressions and Hospitality Fund: Goal $89,850
Did you know that, on average, almost 35,000 vehicles pass our campus each day? Did you hear that a recent COVID vaccination clinic run by Washington County authorities used most of our campus and we provided snacks, drinks, and lunches to over 70 volunteers using our facility? Did you know approximately 2,000 people engage with our online services each week? As we reopen, what will a first-time visitor see and feel?
We believe in Biblical hospitality which welcomes the “stranger” with open arms. Your gift will help us make key improvements to give a better first impression of our care and love:
Note: These seven projects are listed in order of expected usage of funds.
However, several factors and variables will help us determine the best use of gifts toward these projects this year.
