Why We Give
The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. Not having cash or check on hand doesn’t have to hold you back from giving, you can be obedient today by giving online. There is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!
How Does Giving Online Work?
What Giving Methods Are Available?
We have several options available:
- Give via ACH bank transfer
- Click the 'Give Now' button to use this feature.
- Give with a credit or debit card online
- Click the 'Give Now' button to give with a card.
- Give cash or check during a Sunday service

If you plan to give online, we ask that you consider giving via an ACH bank transfer. This saves the church money on processing fees that we pay each time someone donates using a credit or debit card.
Schedule Your Giving
Your life is busy these days, isn’t it? Between paying bills, running errands, and remembering birthdays and anniversaries, giving can easily get put on the back burner. Setting a giving plan can help you be intentional by putting first things first. A set online giving schedule also keeps with the "secrecy" principle Jesus advocated: "do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing". Nobody watches you giving online.
Remembering to give has never been easier. Click the 'Give Now' button and then choose 'Log In' at the top left of the page to create your account and schedule your giving today.
What is Tithing?
"Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine." - Proverbs 3:9-10
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income before taxes or anything else comes out. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can’t outgive God. We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone!
Not From You, For You
"Plans fail for a lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed." - Proverbs 15:22
We've all needed help with our finances at one time or another. There's no shame in that. So if you're feeling stuck in your finances, or just not sure where to go for help understanding it all, just let us know and we'll try to help. VVCC regularly schedules Financial Peace University classes and offers further resources in Order Life. Let us know if you're interested and we'll get more information to you.
