Why We Give
We believe that everything we are and everything we own is a gift from God. When we give to God we are giving back what He already owns. The Bible asks us to give a tithe, or tenth, of all our increase as a testimony of our faith in God to provide for our present and future needs (Leviticus 27:30–34; 2 Chronicles. 31:4–5; Proverbs. 3:9–10; Malachi 3:8–12). Along with our tithe God invites us to participate with Him in funding the work of the Gospel in our communities and throughout the world through free-will offerings. Unlike the tithe, the Bible doesn't identify a percentage of our income that should be dedicated to offering, but a common practice is to give five percent to offering. In one Bible story the king had a chest built and invited people to give freewill offerings to support the repair and renovation of the temple.
At the Village Church we pool your tithe with the tithe from other Adventist churches in the northwest to support pastors, teachers and church administration throughout the eastern Washington area. Our church operating budget and local evangelism efforts are dependent on your freewill offerings. We trust you'll see the value of a well maintained facility for the use of ministry and evangelism and as a result give generously as God has blessed you. We don't encourage equal giving because not all have been given the same amount. Instead we encourage sacrificial giving according to your ability.
50 Year Renewal
Our current facility was built 50 years ago in 1968 and it needs some modernizing. The 50 Year Renewal project primarily focuses on modernizing the facility to meet our needs for ministry in the 21st century.
So far we have improved the sound system in the chapel, installed WIFI throughout the facility, installed new screens and projectors and modernized our projection system, installed efficient LED lighting in our parking lot, and updated our stage lighting to more efficient and responsive LED lights. We have also finished putting in new lights in the chapel.
Upcoming projects include replacing the carpet in the hallways, sanctuary and chapel; reupholstering the pews; new seating for the chapel; remodeling the youth classroom kitchen; renovating and redesigning the entryway and lobby; redoing the navigation signs throughout the church; and replacing our 17 year old video cameras with new HD cameras.
