Giving

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

- Matthew 6:21

Why we give.

God is generous and so he calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

Other WAYS TO GIVE

AUTOMATED GIVING

This service is free and easy to apply for. Contact: Kim Zwisdak, Development Office Project Coordinator 914-337-0207 (x1040) or KZwisdak@TheChapelSchool.org
GATHERING OF FRIENDS ANNUAL GALA
Our biggest annual church and school benefit is the Gathering of Friends, a spectacular dinner and auction held in the spring for everyone from our community. Funds raised through this and similar events empower ministry by enabling programs and outreach that we might not normally be able to provide. Look for opportunities to donate, volunteer, support and have a good time together! Contact: Kim Zwisdak, Development Office Project Coordinator 914-337-0207 (x1040) or KZwisdak@VLC-NY.ORG

JESUS AND THE CHILDREN 
Founded in Faith – Built in Hope – Rooted in Love
The bronze relief on The Great Porch was dedicated April 22, 2007. Parents, congregants, and friends memorialize loved ones, celebrate anniversaries, and remember significant events, blessings and individuals in their lives through an inscription of their choice. These unrestricted gifts, ranging from $1,000 to $100,000, go toward school and church operations.

Ask your employer, or contact the Development Office to discover how to double or triple your gift. Contact: Kim Zwisdak, Development Office Project Coordinator 914-337-0207 (x1040) or KZwisdak@VLC-NY.ORG
STEWARDSHIP
What are those offering envelopes for? Sunday worship, Wednesday Bible studies, The Chapel School, fellowship opportunities, mission projects, Sunday School, glorious music and more are the blessings we receive with our membership at VLC. These blessings are supported by your generous and voluntary offerings, given with grateful hearts and the knowledge that everything we have is a gift from our loving Father. We invite you to prayerfully consider what part of your financial resources may be given to the Lord's work and ask that you establish that offering as a regular part of your household bookkeeping.
